A July 2005 trip

Quote: Weekend wedding in San Antonio, TX
The wedding was in the old German Catholic Church on Commerce St. The mall actually had to build around church property because they refused to sell. The church is classic "old Europe" and has beautiful stained-glass windows.
The Alamo is a must-see but was during another trip in the winter. There were not many crowds at that time.
A walk along the riverwalk at night is a must! There are many great restaurants with outdoor seating, and the lights on the river give it a very romantic ambience.
The needle is closed for renovations right now.
Tickets for the river cruises are fairly inexpensive and are valid for up to 10 years! You can pick a time that's convienent for you, but wear sunscreen or bring a hat, because that summer heat beats down.
The Sunday paper has a great happenings/events listing each week (can also be found online www.mysanantonio.com).
