If there’s one walking town in Texas, it’s San Antonio, with it’s justifiably beautiful River Walk and abundance of missions to tour. The San Antonio Map & Walks app lets you tap into the walkable wonders of the Alamo City through self-guided walking tours and detailed maps of several tour routes. Powerful navigation features let you see the city at your own pace, without the demands (or the price tag) of guided tours in groups.
City Guides offer lots of nuggets of lots of great cities, and the San Antonio version puts a personal assistant in your pocket to bring you the restaurants, hotels, and things to do in town. You can also tap into self-guided tours and tools for crafting a personalized trip (because even if you live here, it’s a great city to see as a tourist). By the way, this app works offline, too, so you can use it without running up your roaming or data plans.
