I got to check another new city off my travel life list when I went to San Antonio for a work conference. It was a quick trip – I flew in for a meeting and a presentation and then went home. Though I only had a little bit of time to spend in San Antonio, I tried to make the most of it.
I started my first morning in the city off with a run on the River Walk. The River Walk goes along a canal in the center of the city. It’s a lovely path, paved and clean. The best thing about the River Walk is the scenery. The path is lined with gorgeous vegetation – plants, flowers, and trees. I loved seeing palm trees in November and running past flowers and colorful shrubs.
The River Walk was so nice I ran the entire length of it, out to a museum, past a golf course, all over town. I enjoyed seeing the restaurants and bars and got to watch staff on boats clean up the riverfront. The weather was perfect and the run was great.
Later that day, I decided to visit The Alamo. I toured through the building itself and all over the Alamo grounds.
I ate lots of Mexican food at local places.
All in all, I had fun in San Antonio. It was a great city for running and an event better city for enjoying local food.
