Texas has never been high on my list of vacation destinations, but then, as you may have observed from my previous blog posts, there are few places on the planet that I won’t visit. I had heard from friends and family that San Antonio is an interesting place to visit, filled with history, missions, food, and art, all of which are an attraction for me.
I found the missions to be very interesting. There are five missions in San Antonio with The Alamo being the most famous. Less famous Mission San Jose, founded in 1720, is a beautiful place to visit and was a highlight for me.
The Alamo is also an interesting place to visit.
The River Walk is probably San Antonio’s most popular tourist destination. Here you’ll find hotels, shops, restaurants, buskers, speakeasies, tourist information and much more. It is a pretty place just to take a stroll.
We also enjoyed a few the many speakeasies that are in the area. As you may know, speakeasies became popular during prohibition. They mostly disappeared when prohibition ended, but there are still a few around.
I visited San Antonio a few years ago in August, and the heat and humidity were intense! If you go, I suggest visiting in the spring or fall, when it isn’t quite as hot. I enjoyed my short time there, it an an interesting place to visit, and the people are friendly and welcoming.
