San Antonio Top Ten

So I spent a week in San Antonio for the NCBA Convention in January, so here is my Top 10 list. All the restaurants are on the Riverwalk because that is where we were staying and didn’t have rental cars. The nice part about the Riverwalk is that everything is within 5-6 short blocks and it is an easy walk (and a great way to walk off your dinner when you’re on the way back to the hotel). 1. Boudrous – if you have nothing more at this restaurant order the tableside made guacamole and Smokey salsa with their thin as air chips and a nice frozen Prickly Pear Margarita, sit on the patio, enjoy the day. ( 2. Bohanan’s Prime Steaks and Seafood – eat the KC Strip, goat cheese mashed potatoes and start the meal with their Texas Heirloom Salad. ( 3. Gypsy Finds – They are everywhere, stop in a local jewelry shop or even the Dillard’s at the River Center to find great western apparel and jewelry. 4. Becker Winery and Lavender Haus – a great vineyard in the heart of Texas Hill Country with lavender fields on all sides of the vineyard, I picked up Lavender Chapstick…sounds odd but it is wonderful. ( 5. LBJ Ranch – The ranch and house are restored to the way it was when LBJ was living there. His humor and their simplistic life is around every turn. ( 6. Fredericksburg, TX – There are so many cute shops and cafes downtown…take a day, spend your time wandering the streets and talking with the locals. 7. HEB Market – Every major city needs a market like this…if you are going on a driving trip to Fredericksburg or Hill Country stop by and grab some fresh fruit, sandwiches and see the amazing set up they have. 8. Hyatt Grand Regency Workout Facility - one word: AMAZING 9. The River – it might be nasty but it is San Antonio. 10. Trois Estate at Enchanted Rock – World’s Largest Cap Gun Museum, underground chapel and enough oddities to satisfy any person’s quirky fix. (
