I am in San Antonio for a few days.

VERY cool place. My wife and I attended a class at Thunder Ranch TX back in the mid 90s and stayed in a bed and breakfast in San Antonio for a couple of days before.

The Alamo and the River Walk were really fun to see. San Antonio is one of my favorite cities in the US.

I had to spend a week in San Antonio for a seminar in, I think 2005, and stayed in a hotel right downtown, Marriott I believe, and I asked the person at the desk how to get to the River Walk and she said to take the elevator to the lower level. Okay. I did and there it was, going right through the building. Cool!.

The next day I asked how to get to the Alamo, and was told to go out the main entrance, turn left and go to the end of the block and turn left again, so I did that and to my shock, there it was!. I just assumed it out of town in the middle of nowhere. Big Grin

I loved that town and plan on going again some day. Good people and great food.

I have been there, but it has been a while, 1964 to be exact. Great part of TX history. I went to high school not far from there, near Austin.

Went to a Kubota dealer meeting a few years back in San Antonio. Kubota secured the Alamo for evening festivities which was pretty cool.

Just down and to the right of the Alamo is/was a little mom pop tex-mex café that had the best Huevos Rancheros I've ever had, bar none. I ate breakfast there 3 days in a row. Spent a few evenings at the Martini Bar on the River Walk as well. Fun place for sure.

In 1991 I visited San Antonio and stayed in the old Menger Hotel, a historic building that is right across the street from the Alamo. Was a 2-block walk to the Riverwalk. My photos of the Menger Hotel: https://www.flickr.com/photos/...s/72157626142208797/

San Antonio doesn't look much different now, Flashguy. Nice photos.

Thanks, jhe888. I'm glad it hasn't changed a lot. I was in a lot better shape in 1991 and I walked the Riverwalk® all the way to the dam.
