SAT – San Antonio, Texas

Last week I spent a day in San Antonio with my crew on an overnight. We had a great time on both the River Walk and at the Alamo exploring together. I spent time there reminiscing over a trip my Daddy had planned for my Mom and I back during early 2012, and of course making new memories. All the pictures in this blog post are from the 2012 trip.

While there, I came up with some ideas and suggestions for future overnights and day trips to the City:

1.) Visit Boudro’s on the River for the best Guacamole and Prickly Pear Margaritas.

2.) Visit San Antonio’s Missions – a National Historic Park: Beginning at the Alamo, you can walk or can rent a city bike and visit the other 4 Spanish Missions that began their history with a goal of converting indians to Christianity.

3.) First time here? Hop on the City Sightseeing bus. It’s only $22.

4.) The Tower of Americas has great drinks, food, and views!

5.) Gruene Hall. It’s on my list because it is Texas’ oldest dance hall! This one is a day trip as it is located between Austin and San Antonio.

6.) Alamo Sightseeing Tours: Tour #1 includes a riverboat ride, 3 missions, a market, and a Texas ranger museum! Tour #4 is a 9am – 4:30pm wine tour!

I go back on Saturday and can’t wait for some Texas size fun!
