Heading to San Antonio and need lodging? Go to http://sanantoniovisit.travelhero.com/index.cfm/subregionid/41/aid/ 142/index.html, which has more than accommodations information.

It includes a section with basic tips called Coming to Visit? as well as events, things to see and do, plus a bookings and savings section.

Under lodgings, you can choose a bed-and-breakfast, downtown hotels, airport hotels, hotels near the Texas Medical Center, or general hotels and resorts. The drop-down menu also offers hotel packages and coupons. When you have chosen the right place, you can then book it online.

Fodor's has a good online mini-guide to San Antonio, http://www.fodors.com/miniguides/mgresults.cfm?destination=san_anto nio@@135. It includes a self-guided walking tour of the city, starting at the 30-story Tower Life Building, which opened in 1929. It then leads you across the River Walk to find the Spanish Governor's Palace and, adjacent to it, San Fernando Cathedral. Follow the River Walk east to find the city's most famous mission, known to most of us as the Alamo.

The site also covers when to go, the King William Historic District, border shopping, clever packing tips and a section on the Mexican influence in the city.

In the Travel Talk area you can read advice and tips from ordinary travelers.

For tips on vacationing in San Antonio with the family, go to Trip Advisor's special sub-site, www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g60956- s401/San-Antonio:Texas:Family.Travel.html, where you can read traveler reviews on all San Antonio attractions.

If your kids are antsy, it suggests taking them to Brackenridge Park to let off steam.
