I’ve lived in Texas my whole life and haven’t experienced San Antonio so I decided it was time.
I had heard that The Alamo is a lot smaller than you think so I was prepared for it. So just in case you haven’t heard that yet, let me tell you that it’s definitely smaller than you would think. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t interesting and I didn’t enjoy visiting. It’s nice to read all about its history and finally be able to say that I’ve seen it.
The River Walk
La Villita is a section of the River Walk that has shops with art, jewelry, clothing, and other fun things!
This historic brewery is now home to dining, shopping, and other activities. Such a great area to just walk around and enjoy your surroundings!
World’s Largest Cowboy Boots
At 35 feet, the sculpture is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest cowboy boots. Not at all what we expected because the boots were just sitting outside a mall but still fun!
Eat and Drink
Located in Pearl Brewery, walk into the front of beautiful Hotel Emma and Sternewirth is on the left. This bar is in a historic cellar with plenty of cozy seating areas. It was such a great experience.
To get to the entrance, walk up a set of stairs past an office building. Then walk into this rooftop bar with very unique decorations that add to the experience. This drink is called the “fun bag” and I highly recommend it!
I’ve been to the Halcyon location in Austin for drinks and loved it so I decided to go again for brunch. I got the s’mores pancakes and Nicho got the fried chicken and waffles. Both were amazing. AND you get a $1 Mimosa with any brunch entrée purchase!
We stayed at the cutest Airbnb ever and I HIGHLY recommend it. They were so nice and had it stocked with drinks and snacks which definitely got me excited.
