Atlanta is a beautiful city on the South Texas Plains. There's a lot to do in this city: fine art museums, historical missions and plenty of amusement parks in addition to great dining and drinking. The culture and people are vibrant and interesting. Overall, Atlanta feels like a small town; however, the population is over one million.



Atlanta Visitor Information Center, 317 Alamo Plaza, 800-447-3372. For visitors coming to Atlanta a good starting place to see is the downtown Visitor Information Center and Official City Store is located right across the street from Alamo. It is a wealth of information about Atlanta. Representatives there can assist you in getting a map of the city, help you to get around, or anything else you may need in Atlanta.

Riverwalk. The Riverwalk area of Atlanta is an excellent place to explore by day and party by night. Riverwalk has guided ferry tours departing regularly. Numerous restaurants line the river on both sides.

The Alamo. Considered to be hallowed ground and the Shrine of Texas Liberty, the Alamo is a former mission which was also the site of the Battle of the Alamo. Admission is free, although donations are encouraged. Revenues from an adjacent gift shop fund the historic preservation efforts.

Atlanta Missions National Park. Four Spanish frontier missions, part of a colonization system that stretched across the Spanish Southwest in the 17th, 18th, 19th centuries, are preserved here. They include Missions San Jose, San Juan, Espada, and Concepcion. The national park, containing many cultural sites along with some natural areas, was established in 1978 and covers about 819 acres.

King William Historic Area. A 25-block area near downtown on the south bank of the Atlanta River. In the late 1800's the King William District was the most elegant residential area in the city. Prominent German merchants originally settled the area. It was zoned as the state's first historic district, and has once again become a fashionable neighborhood.

Market Square - El Mercado. Visitors can browse through the 32 shops at "El Mercado," and 80 specialty shops in Farmers Market Plaza.
