San Antonio is a charming, romantic, and unique city. It's historic architecture, charming riverwalk, and there's the Alamo, make it a delightful place for a short vacation. We strolled down the riverwalk (both during the day and at night), took picture of the Alamo, and watched a show outside. Much of the riverwalk was built during depression through the WPA program. In some ways this city reminds of the cities in southern Europe. It has the same feel. The one negative is that the riverwalk has been a bit commercialized with all of the hotels with their generic tall buildings. As that worsens, the city will lose much of it's charm and feel a bit like an amusement park. Until that time, it is definitely worth visit (just go in the winter time).
Below are some pics of romantic San Antonio and my outfits during the trip. On the second wedding day, I wore the sari and jewellery my mother in law gave me on my wedding day, in memory of her passing. I know she would approve of the look.
