SAN ANTONIO – Due to inclement weather, many San Antonio-area attractions, museums and businesses decided to keep their doors shut or delay opening on Thursday.

Places like the Alamo and the Witte Museum will stay closed due to cold/freezing rain and below-freezing temperatures, which have resulted in ice accumulation on the roadways.
