Places in San Antonio
I am visiting San Antonio foom Japan next month to watch the Spurs play the Warriors&Jazz.
Any suggestions for me to look around in San Antonio??
This is my third time visiting San Antonio and I've been to pretty much all the tourist kind of places. If you had any recommendtions for anything for me to see, I'd like to know.
I'm definitely planning to visit Tim's auto place!
You can also visit Tony Parker's night club... don't remember the name but I'm sure someone on here does.
Also the Pearl Brewery. which is not really a brewery but a collection of shops and on Saturdays they have the Farmer's Market.
Go see the Alamo, tell the people that work there you want to see the basement.
it's either club nine or nueve
You gotta get a quesadilla at chachos!! I don't live in sa anymore but I have dreams about chachos!!
Go have a Michelada and some roasted salsa from Rosario's (I think). Heavenly!!!
As an out of town Spurs fan my favourite stop when there in 07 was to the Walmarts to get cheap Spurs t shirts, shorts etc.... I have lived in those for nearly 6 years.
Also there were some outlet malls on the 35 that had a mix of more Spurs gear and cheap shopping that made my wife happy to come back.
Otherwise we were all the other tourist stuff as well
Thank you all. I have to check out Parker's night club!
Bushido – based on what you’ve said, you have been to San Antonio before and are a little familiar with what the city has to offer. A lot of places you may want to visit or dine will be based on a matter of personal taste and San Antonio will not let you down. We’re nuts with shopping centers, malls and knic-knac shops or Mexican/TexMex or BBQ food joints everywhere you turn. But if you’re particular in your shopping types or dining cuisine, I’ve listed some websites that might be able to help. Just remember to put buying another piece of luggage on your ‘to do’ list while you’re here to carry everything you’ve bought back home with you. Since you’ll be here in mid-March, our Spring is usually equivalent to everybody else’s summer, so pack your clothing accordingly. Remember, if you didn’t pack it, you can find what you’re looking for here. If you have a laptop, bring it so you can MapQuest your way around town. Also, if you have allergies, make sure you bring your medication because south central Texas is notorious for exposing a person’s allergies, even if you think you don’t have any. Lastly, bring your camera because with the warmer weather and occasional rain, when we do get it, all the plant life begins to bloom, including the seas of bluebonnets you’ll see growing wild in south Texas. They make a good backdrop for pictures of your spouse, kids or significant other who might come along with you. Just have a good trip and enjoy your stay – you never know where you might plant permanent roots, y’all.

I highly recommend you make the 30 minute drive Northeast of SA to Lockhart, TX. Texas BBQ is considered by most to be the best BBQ in the US and Lockhart has the 2 best BBQ places in the state...hence, they are the best two BBQ places IN THE WORLD. The Greatest Barbecue Restaurant in the World - Slate Magazine Just keep in mind that they close early (6pm) and aren't open on Sunday.
And since you are half way there, you might as well continue on your journey to Austin which has the state capital, the University of Texas, and a great downtown bar scene. A great side trip would be lunch in Lockhart, see stuff in Austin that afternoon, party on 6th street that evening, then drive back to SA the next morning (stopping back by Lockhart of course (remember it is the two best BBQ places in the world).
While in SA, in addition to the Alamo, there are 4 other historic Spanish missions. Mission San Jose is probably the best. Make sure you check it out if you haven't already. Back during the Great Depression, the US government fully restored the mission as a jobs program. Make sure you take the free guided tour, they have 3 or 4 a day and you can see the schedule on the Mission San Jose website.
If you want to go to where the locals go:
Or take a small drive to a State Park:
Garner State Park
Enchanted Rock State Park
Or take a 3 hour drive and go to Port Aransas out in Corpus area and go deep sea fishing
Or if you want to party. Take the hour drive to Austin and go to 6th Street.
If you would have planned your vacation 2 weeks earlier, you could have just gone to SXSW
Thank you all for more posts!
I'm really looking forward to my trip.
I didn't know about the weather being like summer in San Antonio. It's still freezing in Japan.
