Trip Report JoeTro's San Antonio trip report

Jump to last reply

As promised, I'll do a quick San Antonip trip report:


I flew in from DFW and took a taxi from the airport to Marriott Rivercenter. Fare was $29, including tip. Made a mistake and probably should have just gone with uberx.

Putzed around the hotel a litle bit and then took uberx to the McNey. Fair was $16 one-way, which was pretty steep for a museum, and then the $10 admission fee on top of it. Nonetheless, I really loved the McNey. Beautiful buildings and history, a little bit of everything in terms of the art, really nice staff, and an awesome patio/courtyard area. Just a really neat and quirky museum.

I then took uber back to the main square and walked around a little of the Cathedral and Spanish Governor's house. There seemed to be a wedding about to begin at the Cathedral, so I just peaked inside. I thought the Spanish Governor's house was okay but not worth $5. Furthermore, it was incredibly hot. I did a bit more walking around the area and ended up at Zinc for lunner around 3:30. I cancelled Biga's because I was already spending a good amount of money. And, for $19, I got a great glass of gruner wine, amazing fish and chips, and a yummy house salad. I love the place and plan to go back from happy hour tomorrow before I leave.
