Travel to 18th century Texas
Set aside a full day or just a few hours to explore the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park at your own pace. Use our interactive map to plan your trip, starting at the southernmost Mission Espada, and heading north to Mission Valero/The Alamo, with stops at Missions San Juan, San José and Concepción along the way.
- The VIVA Missions Route provides a dedicated, direct bus route between each of the Missions in the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and The Alamo downtown. Route schedules are available at the VIA Metropolitan Transit website.
- Bring your bicycle or rent one at San Antonio B-cycle rental stations located at each Mission. Biking is a great way to enjoy the eight-mile hike and bike trail that runs from Mission Espada to Mission Concepción.
- If you choose to drive, there is free, convenient parking at each Mission in the Park.
