Location: San Antonio, TX (High 76, Low 60)
San Antonio has easily jumped right to the top of the list of favorite places we have been this winter! We had a great first day exploring.
After getting up and enjoying our morning cups of coffee, we made our way across the street to catch the bus downtown. The bus comes by every half hour so it’s really convenient. ($1.20/person one way)
The bus dropped us off right in the Riverwalk/Alamo location. A few steps and we were taking our first look at the Riverwalk. It was not what I had expected, and I loved it! I had pictured something like Savannah and New Orleans, but this was so much nicer.
There was a wonderful walkway, and every so often a nice little arched bridge crossing to the other side of the water.
We enjoyed watching the boats giving the tour of the waterway. We plan to do that later this week. Yesterday we just wanted to walk around and get a bite to eat.
There are so many choices for places to eat. I loved the little seating areas right on the water. (I did see at least one that advertised as pet friendly on the patio.)
We had a hard time picking one, but wanted to try some Mexican so that at least narrowed our choices somewhat. We ended up eating at Casa Rio’s. Yum.
After lunch we headed out to find the Alamo. I’ve heard other people say it was smaller than they expected, so I was prepared…but it really was small. Pictures aren’t allowed inside.
After visiting the Alamo, we decided to make our way back to the campground, so we found the bus stop and had maybe a twenty minute wait for the next bus heading for the KOA. We were happy that taking the public transportation was a pretty simple process.
We got back to the campground about 2 pm. It was cloudy still but warm. Before we got too settled, we went out to do our run, and then we just had a relaxing rest of the day. We are looking forward to the rest of our week here.
