Getting away from it all to recharge and refresh the mind, body and spirit goes hand-in-hand with the success of hard work, or even celebrating a special event. While there are so many ideal places across the globe to vacation at, the wife and I decided to keep it simple in celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. We decided to revisit a special location for us; the River Walk in San Antonio, Texas. The River Walk is a liquid street traveled by water taxis and lined on either side by bars, shops and restaurants.
Our special time together in SA was accommodated by the Wyndham Hotel that sits right in the heart of the city along the River Walk.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to visit or vacation in SA, you will find that it is a city rich in historic and special places to take in and enjoy.
Sandra and I found the Tower of the Americas a beautiful and romantic place for enjoying an excellent dinner complimented by a breathtaking 360 degree view of the city of SA and surrounding landscape.
One place we did not get to during our stay but will definitely visit next time around is the Japanese Tea Garden. This historic garden is definitely worth a visit based on its immensely rich and colorful sites throughout the property.
Then there are the usual family SA places to visit like Sea Word and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. We have taken in both places in the past, but not this go around; not in the cards for our SA anniversary special memories.
And, don’t forget the Alamo; the “Shrine of Texas Liberty.” The rich history that lies inside the walls of the Alamo Mission is a “must see” for any tourist or vacationer to SA. In previous visits to SA, Sandra and I have traveled over to the Alamo Mission, and we were not disappointed.
There are truly so many more sites and historic attractions to visit in SA. So, if you are planning a rewarding and romantic get away, exciting family vacation, or business leisure trip away from it all, then the “River City” should be at the top of your list. Indeed, SA is a top tier vacation destination you will want to get to sooner rather than later.
