So now I've been in San Antonio for 24 hours and learned quite a bit.
  • Look over street crossing bridges, or you may miss the River Walk
  • Take the River Walk Boat Tour for $7.50, it is worth the 30 minute ride to see the sites
  • The Alamo closes at 5:00, so plan to see it during the day - FREE and tour guides are everywhere and you can learn a lot.
  • Some hotels have a nice complimentary breakfast.
  • Don't take the trolley tour for $16.95, but take the street cars trolleys for $1 each trip. Get a transfer for FREE and return to original point within 2 hours.
  • Take the street car to the Market Place and go through all the buildings finding bargains on jewelry, crafts and trinkets.
  • Eat at MiTierra, just as the websites recommend, it is outstanding Mexican food and reasonably priced.
  • Walk along the whole River Walk, stop and have a Margarita or iced tea along the way. No I didn't say have one at each place - be picky about where you stop.
  • Good Barbque can be found at The County Line on the RiverWalk.
  • Finally, I have signed up for a Segway Tour at 6PM tonight. It is a 2.5 hour tour for $60, so I will let you know later how it goes. It was awesome! It is a bit pricey at $60, but for 2 and 1/2 hours we rolled al over San Antonio with a great guide. We even went on a very secluded part of the RiverWalk, through the King William section (a must), everywhere! We did the 6PM tour and it was much cooler than the 2 PM tour. Good for geeks and non geeks!
  • Combo of Mango and Strawberry margarita at Lone Star - excellent!
