Travel Blogs from San Antonio
Greetings, still from San Antonio;
Yesterday was a quiet day. Our only real activity was to go visit The Alamo. Walking inside the museum was very reminiscent of many of the Churches we have visited in Italy. There is a sense of quiet and reverence about what happened there. It was a moving experience. Pictures are not allowed in the museum but I did snap one of the outside.
... and they say Florida is hot!
Before I forget, let me tell you about our last dinner in New Orleans. We ate at John Besh's place Domenica, which is Italian for Sunday. It was a really authentic Italian trattoria, very informal and family friendly. The most memorable dishes we had were a pizza that we shared, with tomato and spicy salumi and an antipasto plate with meats and cheese. The pizza could have been made in Italy and brought to New ...
... practicing swimming, 80's music on the radio, then Tad, Andy and Daniel came in and I had a frozen margarita. Lunch was sandwiches in the room, followed by a little more park time. Then we showered and drove to San Antonio. First stop: ice cream shop. Next, Alamo. Then a stroll down the Riverwalk for a great dinner at Bella, a Mediterranean Italian restaurant. After dinner we did the mirror maze and laser challenge. We were all super tired and slept very ...
We spent two days in San Antonio. After all the walking we did yesterday, we did more driving today. We did the missions trail. You can ride a bike along a 12.5 trail that runs next to the San Antonio river but we decided to just drive. The mission trail takes you to 4 historical missions that were built in the 1700s. The cool thing is that all of them still function as churches today and you can attend mass every Sundays. At San Jose, there was a wedding going ...
... After leaving Southway, we drove to Camping World to check on the towing equipment. As luck would have it, Vicki was there and did some calculations. We can get the tow equipment we require and have them install it for less than $2,000. Camping World is having a sale and the installation is only going to be $39. So next week we will take both the car and "G/G" over for some ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSpringHill Suites San Antonio Medical Center/Northwest
This hotel is very similar to the one I stayed at in New Orleans. It's another Springhill and I must say, that is my favorite line from Marriott. I've stayed at a few others (Townplace Suites, Fairfield Inn and Marriott) but for the money, this is the best value. The rooms are spacious and for a party of 5, that's very important.
I think the best part of this stay is that at breakfast, the waffle maker was in the shape of Texas! It made us laugh for sure.
