A couple of buddies and I are considering a round trip road trip from San Fran to San Antonio for the convention. We're considering doing the RV thing.

Anyone know if they allow RV's to park around the area of the hotel? I already called the hotel, can't park it inside (even if we are staying there) the hotel and the concierge is not much help.

Any suggestions?

Let's ask any San Antonio people to make suggestions on thing to do in the area, if one arrives early or stays a few added days? Please post some options....

Again, let's ask for things to do! We don't bite, so please make any suggestions. Once we spend money & time to travel, I'd like to add days and make an activity to remember.
I was going to start a new thread, but this one is fine!

Hello George,
I don't live in San Antonio, but I do live an hour away from there. San Antonio is a very "photogenic" city, weather permitting. I'd suggest you do a photowalk for a day, starting with the Alamo, walking over to Commerce St. and heading east. Along Commerce street you'll come to the Cathedral of San Fernando, the oldest cathedral in the country. Keep going east on Commerce till you come to Santa Rosa St. There you'll find the Mercado, a big outdoor Mexican Market, very colorful!! Have lunch at Mi Terria and ask to view the mural on the back wall. From there you can either make your way back to the River Walk and explore that. Of course there's always the San Antonio Zoo, and the McNay Museum is also very nice, and Austin, the Capital of Texas is only an hour's drive away.
I hope this helps.

Do I have compass wrong? I had thought the Mia Terria restaurant would be west. I think I was part of a large group who ate there during last convention in San Antonio, taking a cab or two. As I recall, YES, it would be a very nice daytime walk subject to weather. No ice storm!

I'll copy and paste in to a Word doc and keep in a folder, where I am saving information. I am preliminary contemplating a drive.

Thanks for writing!

Thanks George. It was an authentic Italian deli, brought home 20lbs. of handmade sausage too. As for the image, wonderful what can be done with a table (no tripod) and a self-timer!
