|San Antonio, TX|
The San Antonio area holds a surprising amount of activities to do, from walking (and eating at and shopping) the river walk to meandering around the Alamo and the missions to floating the Guadalupe River to enjoying the state parks nearby. While it can be very hot, San Antonio is a nice weekend getaway spot for the Texan in need of a little break.
I was lucky enough to stay at the Club Wyndham La Cascada, which is right on the river walk and within walking distance of many attractions. Not to mention the resort itself is beautiful.
Our first night we walked around the waterway in search of food. We finally settled on the Iron Cactus, which admittedly is not a local restaurant but was still good nonetheless.
For our full day, we ambled in over to The Original Blanco Cafe and had some delicious (and massive) breakfast tacos. The food was so cheap, definitely good quality for the money paid.
We spent majority of the late morning and early afternoon trying to find a river open to go floating, and then trying to find inner tubes to float in. Shockingly, it was very difficult to find tubes but Dick’s Sporting Goods finally had what we needed.
We ended up floating a portion of the Guadalupe River through Rockin’ R tube company. With the clear emerald waters and wispy Spanish moss draping the river banks, it was a very peaceful two hour float.
A short but relaxing getaway that I would highly recommend.
