San Antonio kind of Sunday

Took a day trip over to San Antonio – it’s definitely developed over the years but retains an old world feel. It reminded me very much of Mexico with a connection to its deep history.

To get around, I’d advise to park your car in one of the decently plentiful public lots and take advantage of the trolley bus system they offer. There are also carriages that are lit up at night and we saw Segways! We took the red line to El Mercado which offers shopping, entertainment and food. We snagged a couple of deals then hit the River Walk at twilight and it explodes with people! It’s definitely worth at least a cursory walk around the circuit. Great photo opps as you move into darker evening.

Dinner back up on street level at the Lone Star Cafe was worth the climb back up. Good food, excellent service without the crowds and wait time down below and amazing margaritas! Which is why this post is a day late 🙂 Here are some of the sights…
