2016 Texas Trip: San Antonio




After a late night in Houston (see our day 1 recap here), we got an early start to San Antonio!  I have wanted to go there since I was little so I was so excited!



The roads in Texas are very layered and intricate like this which we found really cool!



So excited!



The view from our room at the Hilton Palacio del Rio!  We splurged this night and stayed on the River Walk and it was totally worth it.  We had a great view!


As soon as we checked in we headed out to check out the river walk!



Like a kid in a candy store!!



We decided to start our day with one of the river cruises to see the whole river and learn about the history!



I was impressed by how much we learned on this cruise and we were able to see the whole layout and get an idea of what we wanted to do!


We decided on Rita's on the River for lunch and it was delicious!


So much fun walking the whole thing with this guy!


We decided to head over and check out The Alamo!  We only had one day & night in San Antonio so we didn't take the official tour.  We just wandered the grounds and read some of the information but it was so cool to see a part of history we learned about in school!



I loved these big, beautiful trees on the property!



We spent most of the afternoon walking along the river.  We ended up walking more than 10 miles (I think 13 or 14 to be exact) but we saw the whole thing and really enjoyed our beautiful day! 



We ate at Paesanos for dinner & it was amazing!!  It was the perfect romantic dinner on the river that we were looking to have.



Such a pretty night!


The next morning we woke up to a really chilly day!! They had also turned on the Christmas lights over the river for the Christmas season too.  They have an annual Christmas parade of floats the weekend after Thanksgiving which I think would be so cool to see.  We were so glad we had gotten there the day before when it was warm so we could really enjoy being outside.

San Antonio was amazing but it was time to head to Waco & on to Arlington!
