San Antonio

San Antonio, Texas is a pretty and vibrant city, rich in history and culture.  I especially liked the River Walk with the paths snaking along the river, the restaurants, the music and general feeling of relaxation.

It's very easy to forget that you are still in the US because of the strong Mexican influence, including the Mariachi band strolling along and playing songs.  It was a vacation to Mexico inside a vacation to Texas and I loved it!

Of course the city renowned for the Alamo. It was amazing to walk through the shrine and museum and see items that belonged to Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, among others.  The Texas Revolution and the year 1836 is brought to life

Pictures aren't allowed to be taken inside, but if you click here and then go to the Virtual Tour link you can see more.

The weather in San Antonio was gorgeous.  It was in the high 70s, low 80s - not bad for November!  It was hard to look at the snow when I returned.

No trip is complete without a visit to a yarn
