First, let me say, San Antonio surprised me. I have never thought much about Texas, in my mind it just seemed, too big, too hot and too boring. But that has changed – I’d visit San Antonio again in a heartbeat. There is so much history to soak up, great architecture to take in and the nicest people
Where I stayed: The Menger Hotel, a pretty, Instagram-worthy, historic and supposedly, haunted hotel.
Cathedral of San Fernando
The Cathedral is in ‘the center of San Antonio,” which makes this a quick hit on
King William Historic District
If you love old homes and real estate really gets you going, take a walk through the King William historic district. There’s close to 25 blocks of historic mansions.
La Villita Historic Arts Village
This was one of San Antonio’s first established villages. Its buildings are small and quaint with quiet, clean streets. You’ll find artist shops, galleries, and a sweet little church.
The River Walk
The river walk has restaurants and shopping galore. Once the sun goes down, it felt a little bit like vegas with the drinking. I would be a little nervous drinking and walking along in case I misstepped and took a tumble! Whether during the day or evening, this place has a ton to offer, and it’s always complemented with a river view.
The Alamo is a must-see. This is a little bit of history I knew of, but didn’t know about.
Last but not least, a few pretty photos from The Menger Hotel. The wallpaper was enough to make me starry eyed.
