Sights you mustn’t missThe most famous site in San Antonio is by far The Alamo, where in 1836 the small adobe church was the scene of one of the most famous battles in US history. Colonel Travis, Davie Crocket, Jim Bowie and many others gave their lives defending the Alamo and Texas against the Mexican Army of Santa Anna. Today you can walk the ruins, and stroll the grounds and rooms of these historic grounds, and feel the presence of these heroes’. One can almost hear the battle, the cannon fire and Mexican bugles. After viewing the Alamo, take a walk nearby to the historic village of Alamo to La Villita, for some shopping and lunch.
Stroll the famous San Antonio Riverwalk, with its exciting shops, restaurants, galleries and museums. This area is a wonderful experience both during the day and evening as boats cruise up and down the river. You can even choose to arrive at your destination restaurant by water if you choose.

Let's start with brunch - the breakfast choice of champions - at El Jarro de Arturo on 281 N. at Bitters. This is where you get Texan goodness on a plate with super size portions and a cheery atmosphere to help you on your way. It's not as fancy as some of the places on the Riverwalk, but the food is where it's at. Try the pork with spicy red sauce.
This is Tex-Mex country so our recommendation is Rosario's in King William District on S. Alamo. They do an excellent take on the classic roasted tomato salsa. Combine that with the shrimp nachos and then tacos nortenos. It's a big, brash, noisy, crowded place on a Saturday night though - so if you're looking for a romantic night for two, this ain't it.
If you're after a special night out to cement your stay in San Antonio then fancy food in the form of Biga, La Reve and Las Canarias on the river are all good - quality restaurants that won't leave you feeling ripped off by a 'tourist price' for an ordinary meal., and the glamor of a river restaurant to boot.

The River Walk at night is a busy, happy place full of bars and restaurants - but which to choose when you're from out of town. The locals like Durty Nelly's Irish Pub at 200 S Alamo St, mostly because of pianist who takes requests, but also because peanuts come in the shell and you can break 'em open and toss the carapace on the floor. True story.
