Over new year’s, we flew to DC for a belated Christmas celebration with Hayley and her family. Flying in and out of San Antonio, we decided to cushion our return by spending a couple of nights there and spend a day sightseeing.
Having been in the city once before, we had already seen the Alamo, so prioritized some other sights this time around and did not make it back there on this occasion. So the top 10 below will be taken from the Tower of the Americas, a very blatant clone of the Space Needle (and built for the same world’s fair-type event), and from the River Walk.
For those unfamiliar with the walk, a small river flowed through downtown San Antonio. The problem was that it routinely flooded. So the city converted it into a sophisticated dam and lock system to prevent this. But once there, they realized the commercial applications, and transformed the river into a subterranean maze of hotels, shops, and restaurants. Most of the eating venues have outdoor seating. On this 75 degree day in January, it was spectacular!
