I lived in San Antonio Texas for 9 years and I have never written a blog about it. Now this is my chance to talk about the amazing city. San Antonio is the 7th largest city in the United States and it’s known for its culture, Tex-Mex food and tourist attractions. One of the best times to visit is from October to March when it’s not hot. I feel like San Antonio has many attractions. Some popular ones would be The Alamo and the Riverwalk.
San Antonio has a variety of restaurants but Tex-Mex is what its known for. You can definitely get your delicious Tex-Mex fix in San Antonio. The following restaurants are some of my favorites.
Sangria on the Burg:
The menu consists of a combination of Tex-Mex, bbq, and Mexican Spices. They have mimosa and sangria flights. They also change their food menu often, so you can get a different food item, each time you visit.
This restaurant, is a family owned bakery that serves sweet bread and great sandwiches. It revolves around Latin American bread and culture. I think it’s a great place to have lunch with friends. All the sandwiches are amazing and it comes with Fideo (soup). They have two locations in San Antonio, one on broadway street and downtown.
Data Point is a good place for Tex-Mex food even late. Like after the bars late. Datapoint originally started as a food truck but now they have a brick and mortar store. It’s not only good for dinner but breakfast or lunch. They have amazing breakfast tacos. However, my favorite is their cheese enchilada plate.
Tower of America’s
Here you can get a great view of San Antonio, grab a drink or an appetizer and enjoy the view. They also offer tours, if you’re interested. The Tower of America’s is located in Hemisfair Park near downtown.
The Pearl Brewery is located north of downtown San Antonio, It was an operating brewery from 1883 to 2001. Now it’s a retail space that has dining options, green spaces, and a riverside amphitheater. Come here walk around, take pictures, or grab a drink. One of my favorites is La Gloria to grab a margarita or get a coffee at Local Coffee Shop.
This neighborhood is known for its historic homes and artsy district. One of the best times to visit is for First Friday of the month, they have an art scene at The Blue Star Arts Complex. Southtown is also known for its nightlife, coffee shops, galleries, studios, and restaurants. They also have amazing views of the residential part of the Riverwalk.
The trails are located along the San Antonio River. It’s a great place to bike or walk along the trials and explore old neighborhoods. They have four Spanish Colonial missions: Concepcion, San Jose, San Juan, and Espada. I have actually only visited one of the Colonial missions, Concepcion. I hope to visit the others soon.
A touristy area but worth a visit. The Riverwalk is beautiful, along the river there is restaurants, the Riverwalk mall, and candy shops. I love to go to the Riverwalk just to walk around, and enjoy the river. One of my favorite times to go is during Christmas when they have all their Christmas decorations
San Antonio is one of my favorite cities and I love to visit often. This blog talks about some of my favorite things to do there. I know I didn’t mention the Alamo because I wanted to talk about other things you can see. The Alamo is great to visit and its near the Riverwalk. If you haven’t visited San Antonio, I would plan a trip to try that Tex-Mex food and see/experience the amazing attractions.
