Here at Purveyors of Fragrance, we love to travel and experience new places.
This past weekend, I had a wonderful time visiting San Antonio - a city like no other. The architecture is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the people are welcoming. It is a city I think everyone should make an effort to visit, especially if you live in Texas.
Most people have heard of the San Antonio Riverwalk. If you haven’t, it’s basically a canal that runs through downtown San Antonio lined with shops, restaurants, and countless beautiful trees. The many buildings on the riverwalk are characterized by vibrant colors and southwestern architecture. There are beautiful bridges crossing the canal that are perfect for photo ops.
Our dinner out on the riverwalk was spent at Acenar, where I enjoyed some of the best Tex Mex I have had to date. And I have lived in Texas for 6 years, so that’s saying something! I highly recommend the sangria and grilled shrimp tacos, they will not disappoint.
If you like the outdoors, San Antonio has you covered. There are many areas between thirty minutes and an hour away that offer great kayaking, paddle boarding, and floating! In addition to this, San Antonio is in the hill country so the scenery is an eleven out of ten. If you’re lucky enough to make it there during springtime, you will see bluebonnets (Texas’s state flower) carpeting the hills wherever you look. Truly a spectacle!
Not only does San Antonio have incredible Tex Mex, but it also has incredible brunch. I went to Tutti’s, a super cute locally owned restaurant. The atmosphere will make you want to stay for hours and the food is impeccable! My best friend and I couldn’t decide what to get so we ended up getting both the steak and eggs and the chicken and waffles to share - and they hit the spot!
If you’re looking for an affordable vacation destination full of culture, history, and food … look no further! San Antonio is the place for you. Once you’ve visited, I’d love to hear about your experience. Feel free to reach out and share your story.
