San Antonio on My Mind

I’m on my way to San Antonio today, and will be there for a few days. Have you been to San Antonio?  Here are a few reasons to go.

The River Walk. Stroll through lush landscaping, keep an eye out for architecture representing many periods of San Antonio history. Eat. Drink. Shop.

The Food. Book a boat and eat on board. Several River Walk restaurants feature dinner cruises. Mexican-influenced menus dominate, but this is a big city, and you can find all kinds of food. Still–those table-side, fresh-made, custom ingredient guacalmoles can’t be beat. Food shown here from Zuni Grill, Boudrou’s, and Hyatt Hill Country Resort. And how about learning to make a marguerita? We’re talking really BIG margueritas at Aldaco’s at Sunset Station!

Here’s a book of essays by Larry McMurtry about Texas Hill Country, and his road trip book which praises San Antonio (even though I did not think much of the book overall).
