ANYONE LIVE IN SAN ANTONIO, TX?

We're visiting cousins there in early October. We'll just be there for 5 days. If anyone else is there, it would be fun to meet up for coffee or something.

I'm not in San Antonio, but often wish that I were, It's a great city. Plan to spend some time relaxing on the River Walk (it's my favorite). The Alamo is a neat place to visit. They also have Sea World there. I have always found the downtown area clean and safe. Enjoy your trip.

There's a large mall right across the street from the Convention Center (which has been remodeled and is worth a look itself for the artwork).

Also, don't forget Fiesta Texas.

Or the old Spanish Missions around San Antonio. Breckinridge park is nice, lots of trees and a train that goes around the park. I think there's an airplane museum there, but I forget the name.

If the San Antonio Spurs play a preseason game in October while you're there, that would be worth a ticket. They're a really good team.

Oh, you have to visit the Menger Hotel Bar down the street from the Alamo. It's where Teddy Roosevelt recruited Rough Riders in 1898.

I didn't know that, Pepper! I stay at the Menger quite often during Music Convention in February. We have our college reunion there every year during that week.

Thank you for sharing that!
