I adore San Antonio, it's one of my favorite cities in Texas. It has a unique flair all it's own and is always full of convention goers who probably never leave the Riverwalk area, which I'm not bashing because it really is a fun and unique experience, very fun and festive anytime of year. But, San Antonio is so rich with history and really.... great Mexican and Tex-Mex food!
As soon as we arrived we walked over to the Alamo complex, every Texas should make a pilgrimage here.
You never know what you are going to fin around the corner in this city. As we were walking back to our hotel I noticed an abandoned Victorian Synagogue across from our hotel. I loved this building and hope that someone rescues it!
Mi Tierra's. Not only is the food to die for, I adore the crazy it always looks like Christmas decor. Oh and the wall of Mexican pastry doesn't hurt either!
Spanish Governor's Palace (hubby had never been there). Built in the 1700's is a lovely Spanish Colonial building, including a keystone complete with the Hapsburg coat of arms.
This was such a great, impromptu trip!
