Vacation Recap: Part 3

Friday, June 21st, was a very special day of our vacation. We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary! We started off our day by heading to downtown San Antonio to see The Alamo. What an incredible site to see, so much history happened here and it was amazing to stand where so many brave men died.


After we left the Alamo we headed off to the Riverwalk. It was an amazing place with shops and restaurants. We decided to take a riverboat tour so we could see more in a shorter amount of time. It was amazing! While on the tour we we told about the oldest restaurant called "Casa Rio" so we knew that was where we would have lunch. It was a fun tour and absolutely gorgeous.


After a few hours at the Riverwalk (including a tour through the wax museum) we headed off to the Tower of the America's for dinner. We had dinner at a place called The Chart House, it's a revolving restaurant 620 feet up in the tower. It was AMAZING! The food and view were remarkable. It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. After dinner we headed back to the hotel, had some drinks at the bar and relaxed in the spa.


We had an amazing week in San Antonio, we were sad to leave but definitely happy to be home. 

Hope you all enjoyed the recaps. Have a great day! :)

  7. Love the recaps! Sounds like you had a great vacation. Pictures are beautiful. We went to the Riverwalk about 8 years ago; maybe we'll go back one day. And the kids are dying to go to SeaWorld, so hopefully, we'll do that soon.

  20. Happy Anniversary to the two of you! I'm glad you were able to make it that special! We've been to the Alamo 2 years ago, and it was indeed beautiful. Did you go inside? We didn't, because there was a long line and the kids weren't up to waiting in line. Plus the park was way too nice. The River Walk is up next when we go back to SA hopefully next year!

  21. These areas of San Antonio are my favorite. We went there for a mini-vacay before my husband enlisted, and this is pretty much exactly what we did. We love the history behind the Alamo. Have you seen the John Wayne movie? It's a classic! I'm glad that y'all had a great time and a happy anniversary!
