San Antonio is a collection of thriving Spanish, Mexican and American cultures that make the city a fun and exciting place to explore. I’ve lived here most of my life and plan to embark on a journey through the city’s famous landmarks as well as many of the hidden gems I’m sure to find along the way.
A few quick facts:
San Antonio is home to the Alamo, the Tower of Americas and the four-time NBA champions Spurs. But you probably already knew that. San Antonio is so much more than tales of Davy Crockett and awesome basketball.
Next to the Alamo, San Antonio’s world famous Riverwalk is the second largest tourist attraction the city has to offer. Flanked by restaurants, shops and bars, the Riverwalk offers scenic riverboat rides that take you on a guided tour of the river’s history. Downtown also boasts The Menger Hotel, built in 1859. The hotel blends Victorian architecture with modern amenities and is the oldest hotel still in operation this side of the Mississippi River. San Antonio is also home to the five missions (including the Alamo) built between 1718 and 1731 by Spanish missionaries.
This blog will feature my journeys and all the beautiful scenes that I’m eager to discover.
