San Antonio

Now all our honeymoon flights are booked I can't help but get excited!  I know it's still a while away yet, but that hasn't stopped us talking about hotels we like the look of and things we want to see and do whilst we're away.

It's been a long hard journey to get us to this point with many changes along the way, so it's a huge relief to finally get to the stage where the plan has been worked out and finalised.

One destination that was added quite late on in the planning was San Antonio.  We always knew we wanted to visit Texas and had considered Houston and Austin.  It really came down to where we could get direct flights to and from.  I actually suggested San Antonio to Has after reading a post from a blog I read. Heather Drive.  We quickly fell in love with the idea of seeing the second largest city in Texas and as San Antonio is situated so close to the border of Mexico is no surprise to find a lot of Tex-Mex restaurants, a type of food we adore!  We also love the idea of seeing two very different cities in one state, Dallas and San Antonio.

We will probably end up staying quite close to the River Walk or Paseo del Rio.  20 ft below street level, this amazing place stretches through Downtown and is lined with shops, restaurants, bars and hotels.

I can imagine us sitting on the rivers' edge enjoying a big plate of Tex-Mex food!  Seriously we're going to come back 2 stone heavier!  One place that has been recommended is Mi Tierra an award winning restaurant with an amazing looking menu... I've just had my lunch but even now I'm thinking about Enchiladas Verdes de Pollo!

Something else we intend to see is the Alamo.  How could we go all that way and be so close to the Alamo and not visit!

I'm really looking forward to visiting San Antonio, I think it will be quite unlike any place we've ever been before.  We're only there for 3 nights before flying off to San Francisco but I really think it's really going to make an impression on us.

If anyone has been before we'd love to hear recommendations on what to do, where to eat and what to see!
