San Antonio Tourist Traps: 27 reviews and 9 photos


Well, I am fairly convinced that most people have lost the fight for aesthetics versus capitalism. When visiting San Antonio’s rich heritage, I had hoped and expected the commercial nature of the US to remain at least cognizant of the world around them. Just as I had this hope, I visited Mission San Jose, and looked out over the wall to see what? A Pizza Hut sign perched in clear view. I sure wish they had decided in the interest of natural beauty to have made that sign lower to the ground, so it was not visible over the mission wall. Oh well, we can only hope.

    When I returned to the US from Vietnam the first things I noticed were the huge advertising signs everywhere (some revolving). Sort of a reverse culture shock.
