It amazed me how deserted the riverwalk was in the morning...especially compared to how very lively it was in the evenings. Nice for a run though. And it's a good thing I got in a couple of runs because the food was AMAZING!! I have a sweet tooth so I had to try the Blue Bell ice cream my first night there. I saved the Bananas Foster for the last night. Both were amazing!

Of course, it wouldn't be a trip to San Antonio without "Remembering the Alamo". I had a chance to stop by in the evening as well as during the day since our hotel was roughly three blocks away.

We stayed at the Hilton Palacio del Rio. They were in the process of doing some construction on their lobby and lower floors, but besides that small inconvenience it was an absolutely wonderful place to stay. It was located right on the riverwalk. Its three restaurants sat right on the river making it very easy to take in lots of the sights and sounds of the nightlife in the evenings. Take a look...
