Around San Antonio

Last weekend, we headed out west to San Antonio with some of our friends to experience Fiesta! H is headed back in 2 weeks for his national sales conference and will be staying at that fancy Hyatt right there.

What can I say- these people LOVE their Spurs! I think maybe since it's the only major league team in town (no baseball or football), but the town was very excited to see them in the play-offs.

San Antonio is ALL about the Riverwalk. There is a nice, big mall on one side, that leads down to the Riverwalk below.

My favorite part about the Riverwalk is NOT the river. It's just a glorified bayou & generally the water is kinda gross. However, I simply adore all the beautiful old trees and greenery that make the place so romantic and cozy.

There's lots of beautiful old architecture in and around SA, especially churches.

They are especially beautiful lit up at night. Fun fact- did you know the original Ghostbusters movie was filmed here?

The "tourist" thing to do is take a riverboat tour, where you get a great sense of history and learn the tales of the city. They also have special dinner cruises that go through the city.

Like little treasures, scattered around the Riverwalk are fun little architectural surprises and fun features like this waterfall built into the sidewalk.

It's great to get away to the Riverwalk every few years and enjoy this unique place.

I just loved this old building, with all the beautiful iron work and intricate detailing.

Another gorgeous old church!

No trip to San Antonio is complete without a peek at the Alamo! The city was PACKED for Fiesta weekend and for the parades, so we mostly avoided the crowds. I've got fun Fiesta pictures coming up.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Got great seats tonight at the Woodlands Pavilion to see Dave Matthews Band!

Very nice! We spent a night in San Antonio on our big odyssey moving to California, but we didn't see much of anything except the hotel parking lot.
