I am traveling to San Antonio next month for my other job and need tourist tips. We are staying at the Grand Hyatt on the river walk. Please offer any tips, great restraunts, etc!!

Hola! Mi Tierra restaurant, located downtown, is well know for the Mexican Food. It's a bit pricey for locals, but most business travelers enjoy it. Definitely check out Market Square, and walk down the riverwalk. You may like riding up the Hemisphere tower, and you can get a nice bird's eye view. The restaurant up on the tower is fabulous, but a bit pricey. Stay away from all Mexican restaurants on the riverwalk....food is gross!

Will you have a car? What do you like to do?

we will be flying in and taking a taxi to the hotel. I am there for a conference on bone health. We will get in on Monday afternoon and fly back out on Wed afternoon. I have heard the river walk is a must, but I love good Mexican and good margaritas. It is another gal and myself who is going!! I will look up the Mi Tierra for sure. The company is paying for my meals!! Yahoo!

Oh then you definitely need to eat at Mi Tierra! They're known for their gigantic and yummy Margarita's and used to have Mariachi's! The riverwalk and Market Square is fun, and if it's company money...do the Tower restaurant too.

I'll post more suggestions as they pop up in the brain.

Don't forget to at least VISIT the Alamo. It's right next door and an important part of our History. You can see the whole thing in an hour.

There's a restaurant that is inside a crooked house. It's really good food and just outside walking distance from the Riverwalk. I agree with what everyone else says in addition to this restaurant.

Liberty Bar 328 East Josephine St. San Antonio, Texas 78215-1127
Telephone: (210) 227-1187

That is an awesome restaurant Jae! Forgot all about that one. Also, Chris Madrid's is great, but not near downtown.

Take the boat ride down the river. It gives you some great views of the city you don't get otherwise and you hear the history of the city too.

I agree, but I think it's best to do it in daylight. You can't see everything the tour guide is pointing out if it's dark. You could take two rides, one in the dark and one during the day.
