Discovering San Antonio, south of Southtown helped me fall back in love with the Alamo City. Or more accurately, it took determining where to eat and drink in San Antonio south of Southtown to reignite the passion!
Be honest. Hasn’t the idea of San Antonio started to look better on paper than in person? Especially once the kids were grown, and we were no longer proudly showing them where the heroes of the Alamo fell. Or watching them feed the ducks on the Riverwalk while us grownups huddled under an umbrella, enjoying frozen margaritas and a plate of nachos.
Losing the love for San Antonio Riverwalk
Once I quit seeing it all through my kids’ eyes, I couldn’t push aside being pissy over the traffic and the souvenir shops and the chain restaurants. The Hard Rock Café, Landry’s Seafood, Saltgrass Grill and Rainforest Café were as romantic and authentic as Disneyland.
