Take a Walk in Historic San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio is the place to see where Texas history begins, especially when you chose to leave taxis behind to instead follow in the footsteps of the city’s earliest inhabitants and history-makers. Here you can walk back in time to colonial Spanish days at one of San Antonio’s five 18th-century missions that spread European culture and converted the native people to Christianity — forever changing the face of the Southwest, for better or worse.

For walking tour guides, get the full story here by Holiday Goddess editor and Just Luxe contributor Vicki Arkoff:  For high style, a locally-made pair of cowboy boots were made for walking the streets of San Antonio (and we mean that in the good way). However, for comfort and in support of Texas Senator Wendy Davis' devoted service on behalf American women, city walking tours will benefit from her choice in comfort footwear: the Mizuno Women's Wave Rider 16 Running Shoe.
