San Antonio’s Witte Museum might draw bigger crowds, but the McNay Art Museum is the more enjoyable stop. Housed in a circa-1928, 24-room Spanish Colonial Revival home, the McNay is full of treasures both traditional and eclectic. The exterior, like this courtyard porch, is as stunning as the art on display; photo by Robin Catalano.

Snapshot Travel Guide:
San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio, Texas, is a kaleidoscope of cultures, cuisines, colors, and must-visit destinations, both modern and historic. You just don't know Tejas until you've visited "Alamo City."

Texas is often saddled with clichés: that its unofficial motto is “Bigger is best,” that it’s ultraconservative, that residents spend more time roping cattle on horseback than they do in cars. To be sure, old cowboy culture persists in some pockets of the state.

But San Antonio defies these stereotypes by sticking out its tongue (residents are far too polite to flip the bird), cuing up some Mexican pop music, pouring a cold brew, and settling in for a mind-bending variety of multicultural cuisines. Here’s a look at some don’t-miss spots in the city.
