San Antonio River Walk
What a great city San Antonio is! Its pretty far south in Texas so there is a big Mexican influence, no menu was complete without Tacos, Burritos and Nachos. Hot Sauce was as common as Ketchup. We were lucky enough to visit during Fiesta week. It was extremely festive, colorful streamers decorating everything. San Antonio's biggest attractions are the River Walk and the Alamo (remember?). The river walk is (no surprises) a river, that loops through the city flanked on either side by restaurants and gift stores. The river is lined with trees and gardens, all meticulously maintained. It is hugely busy, every restaurant has outside seating along the river, where you can watch the ducks or the river boats while sipping a margarita. Wonderful.
