Even if you have just a weekend in the South Texas city, you're in for a treat. The city has more great restaurants and activities than you can possibly tackle in 48 hours, but here's where to start.
The Alamo is not to be missed, and you'll want to take a tour to make sure you find out all the history behind the iconic location. The garden is beautiful and also worth a visit.
The Twig just moved to the Pearl, so stop in when you're done eating and pick up a new book. There's a children's section as well as a strong selection of Texas tomes.
A gorgeous vintage-style hotel in San Antonio, the Havana has airy rooms, open patios, and a beautiful restaurant right on the River Walk.
Brush up on your cooking skills by taking a class at the Culinary Institute. There are boot camp sessions that will help you with knife skills or teach you the basics of Latin American flavors.
Start your day by grabbing an iced coffee at Sip. There are also muffins and other baked treats, and it's a comfortable spot to stop and work or relax.
With multiple restaurants, a cooking school and an amazing Saturday morning farmers market, beeline for the Pearl when you want to eat well. Wander the farmers market sampling tamales, wine, and other treats.
Whether you need olive oil, chorizo, or serving vessels straight from Mexico, this shop is where to go when you need anything related to Latin American cooking.
The Brooklynite is doing innovative things with drinks, like peanut-oil washed whiskey and chorizo tequila. The classics are just as good, though, so you'll also find great renditions of negronis and Manhattans.
Located just next to the Culinary Institute, the bakery features items like cakes, cookies, and pastries made by students.
Try dishes created by culinary students at NAO and you'll be ready to apply to the school yourself. The cocktail list is also pretty impressive.
