We Asked And You Replied With Your Best Ideas For SA Visitors
This week we’ve been asking you -- our readers and listeners via social media -- where our colleagues from the Texas Standard should visit while in San Antonio. We've been tracking your suggestions and here's some of what you told us:
What we heard fell into three big categories -- places to eat; traditional tourist- type destinations; and those unique places only San Antonians know about.
For food we heard a lot about breakfast tacos. But also, we had suggestions to visit Cured at the Pearl and to grab drinks at the relatively new Hotel Emma.
For better known destinations: Jon Alonzo told us on Facebook not to miss the Helio Cristo at Mission Concepcion. Now, all of the Missions are part of a recognized World Heritage site. We also saw several suggestions to walk, or bike or even boat sections of the San Antonio River Walk.
And what about those unusual places locals love?
There were so many recommendations it’s hard to choose just a few. We love jazz and flamenco at Carmens de la Calle or catching some poetry at Barrio Barista. You could check out Davey Crocket's fiddle at the Witte Museum or if you want to get outdoors there’s also San Pedro Park, which is the second oldest part in the United States.
There was one more unusual suggestion from Vanessa Martinez Campos. She suggested a visit with her grandma, who she said is the longest-serving crossing guard in San Antonio.
