San Antonio Adventures

Our latest adventure took us to San Antonio, Texas where we stayed for two days after flying into the city. I have been there a few times before but Chance hadn't so it was all the more fun to be with someone seeing everything for the first time. The main thing that we wanted to do was see the Alamo and the Riverwalk which are right next to each other downtown.

We ended up meeting my Aunt and her husband and staying on the 12th floor of a hotel not too far from downtown. We were able to walk to everything which was good because driving there is rather hectic and no parking.

 This was a church we ran into on one of our walks that supposedly has buried many people who died at the Alamo. It is rather difficult to know who these people are considering the circumstances surrounding their death, that is why it is unsure. The church is beautiful. 

The Alamo is unique though my favorite part is the grounds around the building itself. The Riverwalk is also a neat place to walk along though it was crowded it was still nice.

We also discovered that there are multiple missions in San Antonio that are more authentic than what is left of the Alamo. These were a grand discovery!

We also ate delicious Mexican and BBQ food while in San Antonio!

Needless to say we were very busy for those two days we stayed in the city and were ready to head to Corpus Christi and the beach.

Next up-Corpus Christi adventures!

The old building are amazing and then you think about when they were built and still standing. Buildings are not built that well these days. Thanks for sharing.
