I am thrilled to have partnered with SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience, because San Antonio is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s also my home. San Antonio is a great place and we’d love to see you and your family here.
If any city can be classed as a food paradise, San Antonio fits the bill. Food is everywhere in my fair city. Food of every variety, from every walk of life. From our Tex-Mex roots to some of the best Indian i’ve ever had. All of it is just blocks from our home, and that doesn’t count the world-famous San Antonio Riverwalk or historic downtown with their luxury hotels and restaurants headed by noted chefs such as John Besh and Jeff Balfour.
Of course we’re not all about food here. We’ve got great shopping, from haute to thrift. One of the coolest (and most eco friendly) water parks in America. There’s Six Flags over Texas if you’re looking for a day of thrills, and San Antonio is home to one of the most kid-friendly zoo’s in the nation, according to Family Fun magazine.
Of course, after all that fun, you’ve still got to have someplace to stay and you’ll definitely need someplace to eat, so why not save some cash on your visit by checking out some of the Limited Time Offers from my friends at @SAVEinSA and follow them on twitter to keep up to date on the latest deals.
What should you do while you’re in San Antonio? let me help you out by telling you what my family would do if we had the chance to play tourist for a weekend in our own city:
You’re going to need a place to stay, so why not enjoy the best San Antonio has to offer. Start your stay by checking in to the Drury Plaza Hotel. It’s been voted the best place to stay in San Antonio and dits right on the Riverwalk itself. Book throught SAVE and get your rooms from $99 per night. (That’s a deal, trust me!)
From there, it’s a matter of deciding what to do, and San Antonio has a lot to offer. If we were staying for the weekend, I’d probably tart my Friday night off with a visit to the Tower of the Americas for dinner and a great view of the city. but before you eat, take the 4D Theater Ride ($2.00 off)
For your first full day in The Alamo City, it pretty much goes without saying that, if you haven’t laready, you’ll want to see the Alamo. Once done, grab a Hopper pass with Trolley Tours ($3.00 off) and visit the rest of the historic downtown area. Don’t miss Mission Square for some great shopping and food and you’ll get a free gift with any purchase to go with it.
After a day like that, it’s time for a good rest and perhaps a troll on the Riverwalk to cool down. (It’s hot here, so stay hydrated!)
For day two, i’d cugget taling in som of the heritage of the city. Like the Institute of Texan Cultures (bogo tickets) or get a discountd tour through Natural Bridge Caverns if you’d like to stay cooler while enjoying one of the area’s natural wonders.
When you do come, be sure to take time to check out Henry’s Puffy Tacos on Bandera Avenue after you’ve checked out the Alamo. You’ll also want to make time for a visit to the Riverwalk and, if you’re coming in August between the 18th and the 25th, you’ve got to visit downtown eateries for Restaurant Week. (I’ll be there, somewhere. Trust me.)
So come on. visit us in San Antonio. it’s a beautiful city and we’re always happy to have visitor here in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
