... thru Artesia then Compton stations. It was a normal day. We changed trains at Willowbrook and went upstairs for the green line towards LAX. An old black man asked me for change. "Gave my last two quarters to a young lady at Del Amo," I said He grinned his five yellow teeth at me. "I know," he said, unzipping his shoulder bag to reveal a scrawny tabby kitten, maybe a week old. "She got fleas. I need money's for the treatment." "Good-luck," I said. "Thank you kindly," ...

... ranging discussions during our evening at the Riggott’s home. I didn’t really know Keith, Wendy and Cheyenne, but was reminded of probably being introduced years ago at Calvary Chapel, Fort Lauderdale. Wendy’s sister, Heather is Isabelle’s close friend, Gabby’s mom (from school and dance). So Izze’s friend’s mom’s sister’s family opened their home to us – relative strangers really. Given that ...

... ARE NOT ALONE!!! I do wonder if it has something to do with a 7/4 weekend. I doubt they put up the "Thinking of buying a new gun?......DON'T, until you shoot it here. Classes 6 days a week," billboards just for the weekend though. So cool to see OUR CULTURE in the open, being supported. So we pulled into the KOA in San Antonio today. We easily have the $&@!iest trailer here. People were looking at us like something was about to ...

When in Texas....steak and guns

Quick bagel and shower and then some of us got the bus back into San Antonio for more exploring. We wandered around the river area and a shopping mall alongside it, however most of it was closed so we headed in the direction of the steakhouse we had booked the evening before. Craving a good steak in Texas we had done some research and found the Texas land and cattle steak house. I ordered the steak and ribs with broccoli and mac and ...

The Alamo

... invited to join the US. They accepted. This annoyed mexico and there began a war between the us and mexico which the us won. Mexico agreed to transfer the other aformentioned states to the us and this led to the present day map of us. Thus the importance of the alamo in us history. So, went and checked out the surviving buildings and then went for a walk around town. Pretty grim really, except for "the riverwalk" which is the city's other claim to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Brackenridge House Bed and Breakfast San Antonio

    Brackenridge-has HiSpeed Internet

    from

    April 2005. We had a great time at the Brackenridge house and we are not normally "Bed & Breakfast" types. We won a two night stay through Texas Monthly so had nothing to lose. We were pleasantly surprised by the up-to-date conveniences. Our past experience with B & B's were shared bathrooms and blown breakers using a hair dryer. Nothing like that at the Brackenridge. It has all the antiquity ambience along with high speed internet, microwave, refrigerator and of course each room has it's own bath, shower and fully functioning toilet. The location is wonderful, and truly is a walkable distance to the Riverwalk. Our hosts were the best and gave us a full overview of restaurants, Trolley maps and such upon arrival so that we were confident to set out on our own. The morning breakfasts were excellent, with abundance and had something for every taste. We would highy recommend this Bed & Breakfast and can easily understand why it has such a good rating.

    Hospitality abounds!

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the Brackenridge House for two nights and didn't want to leave! The location in the King William Historic District was perfect for strolling the neighborhood and seeing the beautiful Victorian homes. We enjoyed being just two blocks from the riverwalk, and the stroll downtown along the Rio San Antonio was filled with lots of opportunities to take pictures. Bennie and Sue epitomize Southern hospitality, providing tips on restaurants and things to do and serving up delicious three-course breakfasts. Lily's apple-stuffed French toast was yummy! This was our first visit to San Antonio, and when we return, the Brackenridge House again will be our home away from home.

    Couldn't be better!

    from

    We have been B&Bing for 25 years, and it just doesn't get any better than this. Sue and Bennie are the perfect hosts, the rooms are spotless and well-appointed, and the breakfasts are superb. Highly recommended.

    A Wonderful Stay

    from

    We have stayed at many B&Bs with warm, welcoming touches, but Sue and Bennie supplied them all: 4 star, 4 course breakfasts, daily sherry, stocked refrigerators, newspapers and books about San Antonio, every possible amenity in the bathroom, and wonderful directions and restaurant suggestions from Sue. We will send all our friends to the Brackenridge from now on.

    Our first B & B experience

    from

    This was our first time at a B& B and it probably spoiled us for future attempts at other B & B's. Benny and Sue are marvelous hosts and the food is great. A central location makes this the perfect place to stay in San Antonio,

    Military Graduation

    from

    What a great experience. The Inn keepers, Bennie and Sue are the best people you would ever want to meet We had come to see our daughter graduate from basic training and immediately were greeted as if we were family. We had such a great time at Brackenridge House. Nothing was overlooked. We have traveled the world over and never found a better place to stay. We would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a wonderful experience.

    Bennie and Sue are wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the convienence of the trolly passes to go all around San Antonio without having to fight finding a parking place. We went all over with these free trolly passes. The attention to detail is wonderful here anticipating all my needs and the well stocked refrig in the room. Breakfast was delightful and we enjoyed the brownies for an afternoon snack. We will recommend this B&B to anyone going to SA.

    Brackenridge House is first rate

    from

    I have stayed at the Brackenridge House several times both as a business and leisure traveler and my experience has always been terrific.

    Brackenridge House became our home for 5 days, loved it!

    from

    Most spectacular B & B we have stayed in our 20 years of travel through the USA. Three couples from California and one from North Carolina, we stayed for five nights and were delighted to call the Brackenridge House home during our stay in San Antonio, TX.Clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were wonderful and our hostess, Lily, became a friend and did a great job of filling in for the owners who went out of town to welcome a new grandchild.We highly recommend to anyone visiting San Antonio, TX, the Brackenridge House, you will love it. In the heart of the King William District near the Riverwalk and the Alamo gave us an opportunity to walk from the house to most everywhere we wanted to see.Robert John and Gayle Crawford

    The Brackenridge House is Wonderful

    from

    This is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. The food is wonderful and the hospitality as good or better. It is very convenient to the Riverwalk, the Alamo and the other missions and has easy access to major freeways. It is a great value.
