My sister and I try to take a trip together each year. We always have a blast visiting places we have never been. We are both history lovers so we are naturally drawn to places with rich pasts or historical sites to explore.
One year we picked San Antonio, TX. We choose this as one of our top 2 trips. I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to spend a few days or few weeks in a fun place. Not only did I learn so much about our country’s southwestern ethnic history, there are lots of modern attractions. Not trying to sound like a travel agent or Texan enthusiast, just thought it would be fun to share our experience.
I strongly believe in building relationships with your loved ones and I am passionate about historical education. So I combine the two!
Taking the audio tour through the Alamo was not what I expected. I thought I knew the story, but begin there and stepping in the very spots where this intense events occurred was very moving.
Just walking through isn’t enough – we always take an audio tour if we can.
The missions! Wow! So many stories and beautiful architecture. There are many in the area and you can tour most of them. Again, we watched the informative videos if they had them and took our time wandering the grounds.
We went from mission to mission on a trolly bus and ran across a family who were trying to see San Antonio in one day. They were jumping off here and getting back on there – racing through each attraction. No thanks.
The River Walk downtown was our spot to go every night. Miles of canals surrounded by restaurants and shops of all kinds. Of course we took the boat ride. It’s the place to be in the evenings….
Yes, that’s fudge….did I save the best for last? Well, no, but we did our best to work our way through that log of chocolate….not really.
Okay, so I’ve never done a post like this. Just something fun, yet I hope it will spark you to take a sister trip, a mom and daughter trip or son and father…there are lots of good reasons to do it and a million great places to go.
Have you ever been to San Antonio? Do you take regular trips with a brother or sister?
