One of my favorite resturants, the food is good, the wait staff knowledgable and you can ask the Chef to stop by the table. He's very friendly. A little more upscale to note that

Of course the Riverwalk is a must see for any first time visitors, great texmex margaritas abound. Make sure you take a river taxi, great site seeing from the river but also the guide will give you some great history about the buidlings. Did you know the riverwalk was once the "trash collection side" used for pick up.

This is one of the oldest golf courses in the US. the parks has great walking paths that a not too far from the property. Great morning jog, walk. The trees keep it cooler during the summer. Very well maintained by the City's park's departmen. There is a "train" that runs through the park, great for kids and I see parents smiling too.

San Antonio's zoo is one of the most well kept and humane zoos in the country. The lonely Rhino finally got a partner a few years ago. We were all relieved. Great place to take the kids, within walking distance or a short ride

the Pearl is one of San Antonio's gems. It has developed over the last 10 years into a great jazz, food, shopping and all around destingation. Check out the Farmer's market on Saturday and Sunday. Lots of space for kids to run around, walk a dog or just enjoy a nice cup of coffee and hang out. Couple of nice wine bars

نصائح بخصوص المدينة

التجول في المنطقة
The bus lines runs a block away.
Bus routes are easy with a GPS on phone just select bus instead of car. There are some ungraded routes that run a block away , WIFI, music, friendly drivers always. Very clean buses including UV light to clean germs.

The farmer's market at the Pearl
if you like trying local coffees, honey and maybe even pick some breads or locally grown veggies. This is the place on Saturday and Sunday. Lots of people and dog watching. Food court has many options to choose from.
العادات والثقافة
The city is heavily influenced by mexican culture
There is some great mexican resturants, margs and just a nice friendly attitude all over san antonio. embrace the easy going pace and have fun
لا يفوتك
The ride to the top of the hemisphere
Hemisphere park has really been upgraded in recent years. the ride to the the top of the hemisphere sight deck is scary for some but it is well worth it. there is also a bar and resturant at the top. I recommended best after dark because of the setting sun is very instense as the the deck spins but if you don't mind then it a good time any time
ما يجب حزمه
San Antonio is very casual
A light jacket in the winter is usualy fine (only a couple of freezes per year) Casual look is everywhere. If you plan to go to a nice resturant might want to bring something a little nicer but overall it is an easy going place attire wise. Short in the summer a must and sunscreen
عبارات مفيدة
no need for spanish lesson
Although the culture is predominately mexican american. Most people you will encounter in the hospitality industry are bilingual
طرق التوفير
local farmer's market or grocery to pick up items
One of the expenses with traveling is food. with a well equiped kithen at the property; picking up a few things and having a nice evening in is always an option. Especially with a great Terrace like the property has. I have seen cheese and wine, breakfast, and just an evening playing cards out on that Terrace
