Dallas/San Antonio

My husband’s company was based in Dallas, Texas so one July we decided to go down to Dallas and then head on to San Antonio.  While in Dallas one of the places we went to eat at was called Pappasito’s and the food there was wonderful as were the margaritas!

We headed to San Antonio for the fourth of July weekend so we ran into quite a bit of traffic and it was super hot in Texas in July, but it was a fun weekend.  I would highly recommend San Antonio as a destination for a long weekend trip.  We stayed in a Courtyard By Marriott that was in the Market Square area.  It was a walk to get to the Riverwalk area, but it was definitely doable.  We really enjoyed the Market Square area as there were lots of shops and restaurants in that area that were fun to explore.

Market Square

The San Antonio River Walk is a network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River, one story beneath the streets of San Antonio.  There are some hotels down here but the prices are super high.  There are also lots of restaurants and shops in this area as well and they are fun to go through.

If you go here, take one of the boat rides shown above as they are worthwhile taking as they will give you a historic overview of this area.

Of course, if you go to San Antonio a stop to see the Alamo is a must.  It is a small, shrine like fortress and monument to Texas history with a museum, artifacts, and gardens.

I have mentioned previously that my husband is a home brewer so a stop by a local brewery was a must.  He found one in San Antonio called Freetail so we stopped by there for a drink.

This was a fun long holiday weekend trip that we took by ourselves, which is rare for us to do, but this was a fun time and I would highly recommend going there and checking out some of the sights that San Antonio has to offer.
