(San Antonio, Texas)
San Antonio is a great old town. The River Walk and early 1900 architecture is incredible.
I had never been to San Antonio before ’07 and am really glad I went. The tour boat ride was surprisingly really interesting.
The view is from E. Commerce St. near visionary architect Robert Hugman’s cylindrical office. Hugman was a genius; ridiculed as a fool for developing in a flood prone area in the ’30s he had the last laugh when his designs negated flooding and now the River Walk drives San Antonio’s thriving tourist economy.
It includes: the Drury Hotel, Clifford Building (were Hugman worked), Nix Hospital, Casino Club Building, the River Walk, riverside dining, river taxi and tour boats.
