Texas Hill Country Romantic Getaway

Overview

Quote:
Sea World is worth the admission price, whether you're young or old, and the Behind the Scenes tour is well worth the extra (when we went) to experience some real learning. Get there when the gates open to sign up for this limited opportunity. You won't be sorry. Fiesta Texas is an amusement park that is VERY HOT most of the time, has some good rides, and very good shows. San Antonio and its famous River Walk must be on your list of things to do. Mexican Food on the River Walk is a definite, La Villata for a sense of the Old Mexican market, a great zoo and botanical gardens, and of course the Alamo...all make for a varied itinerary. The Texas Hill Country allows you to be as active or as inactive a...Read More

The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort in San Antonio is located away from the hustle bustle of San Antonio, yet is very close to SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas, and about 45 minutes to San Antonio River Walk.

Rio Rio is our favorite restaurant on the RiverWalk. The food is consistently good, and they have GREAT Margaritas, chips and salsa. We always ask for a table upstairs, outside by the railing, so we can overlook the River Walk - great for people-watching. The service is attentive, but remember that in San Antonio, no one is moving quickly - it's a relaxed location. During the week, they turn the lunch crowd as quickly as you'd like, but if you aren't working, and you want a leisurely pleasure lunch, they'll be happy to oblige! The Botana platter for two is a fun experience for your 1st visit. A selection of shrimp, beef and chicken, along with other specialities is served on a huge platter to sha...Read More
