One week from today I will be on my way to San Antonio Texas to attend a conference. I know we have several MWers from Texas, anyone from the San Antonio area? We will have some free time, what are some can't miss attractions?

We will be staying at the Hilton on the River Walk and I plan to visit the Alamo Friday morning before the conference starts. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1124.4 #3 7:07AM
What kind of conference? A mini vacation of sorts - 5disneylovers  995.1 #5 7:22AM
I am President of my leadership development organization Chapter. This is our annual national conference. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1124.4 #3 5:29PM
I used to live in San Antonio. Love that city! Here are some suggestions... Riverwalk boat ride (called Rio Rio) Mexican food from Mi Tierra in the market square (there is a trolley that takes you all around downtown). Mi Tierra is open 24 hours a day, there is always at least a short wait, but it's delicious! It's a fun, lively place. There are mariachis who come to your table if you want some music, there are Christmas decorations all around (all year long) and there is a Mexican bakery at the front of the store that has delicious treats. Across from Mi Tierra there is a Mexican market where you can walk around and shop, there are also other restaurants, but this one is my fave. On the weekends, there will be events and music in the square area too. You might enjoy shopping in the Rivercenter mall (pretty, glass mall at one part of the river), there are lots of shops and nightlife all around the river too. Dick's Last Resort is fun, so is Howl at the Moon, and there is a place that is wall to wall frozen drinks, but I can't remember the name of it. There are many places to eat right on the river if it's not too hot, that is fun. If you have a car, check out Big Lou's pizza, about 15 min east of downtown. They have a pizza bigger than my oldest munchkin! It hangs off the table it's so huge! (They were on Man v. Food.) It's delicious NY style pizza. Hope these help! Feel free to msg me with questions. I hope you love it!! Just beware, it's HOT!!!! - BagGal  239.7 #32 9:38AM
I'm a little worried about the heat and humidity. I am very prone to heat illness. I will only be going out early/late and drinking a lot of water! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1124.4 #3 5:35PM
Wow, I used to go there a lot and BagGirl gave great tips! - ally  509.0 #15 6:02PM
Also, you can ride to the top of the Tower of the Americas and there is an observation deck up there and a restaurant. At the bottom, there is a 4D movie about TX that is kind of fun. If you're staying longer and have a car, there is Sea World and Fiesta Texas. Fiesta Texas isn't WDW, but it's fun. The Alamo may be a little more enjoyable if you go to the IMAX movie at Rivercenter mall first. It tells the story of the Alamo and its pretty good. It's a short movie, maybe 45 min or so, but then you can walk right over to the Alamo. Also, in the evening, they have horse drawn carriages that take you around downtown. Those are all day actually, but it's sooooo hot during the day in August. We were just in SA in June. We stayed at the Rivercenter Marriott and loved it. I hope you have a great time. Oh! You can also go to La Villita, a little area across from the riverwalk. They have little quaint shops where artists sell they're work. It's kind of neat to walk around there and see what they have. Also, my hubby and I or married in the little chapel there. It's over 150 years old, I think! Okay, I'll stop now. Let me know if you want more info about anything. :) - BagGal  239.7 #32 9:46AM
I used to live in Nacagdoches, and worked at Walmart in San Antonio when Josh was 2. Loved that city!! Great advice my sista!! - mrsincredible  1061.0 #4 9:59AM

Yes!!!! How could I forget that?!! - BagGal  239.7 #32 3:11PM
I love cinnamon rolls, one that big ought to fill me up! - MsMode  27.4 #136 2:17PM
All I hear is 2lb cinnamon roll😍😍😍 - tracsant  1260.8 #2 2:44PM
Ohhhhh, that cinnamon roll is amazing!!!! It's delicious and it's the size of a small suitcase. Yes!! Go there too. We were there in June. Yum-o!! - BagGal  239.7 #32 3:10PM
Wow, thanks BG! I took notes and will see how many of the things on your list I can fit in! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1124.4 #3 5:41PM
Maybe you will get sent to the NY area somedayπŸ˜‰ - tracsant  1260.8 #2 5:54PM
Maybe! Since I've been an Officer I've traveled to Nashville, Portland, San Diego, St Loius, and last year WE hosted in Seattle! (I missed the Miami and New Orleans conferences.) - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1124.4 #3 5:59PM
San Antonio and cities around there have awesome bbq and tex mex - jon-t  190.5 #2036 6:08PM
I would say we should have a mini MW meet up but I'm moving Monday morning back to Northern California for my new job. You are staying at our favorite hotel. It was constructed with each room being pre build out of concrete and then fully furnished and then lifted into place like a big block set. It makes each room almost sound proof. Great place! Have fun supposed to be in the 100's. - dadwholovesdisney  36.4 #120 6:46PM
