Our Weekend in San Antonio

What a fun weekend in San Antonio! If you've never been to the area, I highly recommend you make a weekend of it and go. The area is fun, lively, there is amazing food and walking everywhere is just fun! 

We stayed at the The Springhill Suites near the Alamo. We were about a 5 minute walk from the area and it was perfect. We booked it through Hotwire and for $412 we stayed for two nights. I thought it was a pretty great deal! The $412 was the final number with taxes and fees. The only negative to staying in the city is you have to factor in parking. We went with the valet option through the hotel and it was about $40 a night with taxes. 

My sweet friend Mary Beth sent me a list of food recommendations before arriving. The list was PURE gold and every place on the list was amazing. On Friday night when we arrived, we walked to Dough Pizzeria. I had looked this place up prior to going to see if they had gluten free crust. The delivery far outweighed my expectations y'all. The gluten free crust was so good I was afraid the entire time I was eating it that it was full of gluten. I got the Pulled Proscuitto pizza and had all the cheese taken off except Goat Cheese (if you are lactose intolerant, I would try these cheese.. it doesn't have the protein that normal Cows milk does). Seriously an amazing combo. I enjoyed their best red blend and we sat on the patio. Quite frankly, I was in food heaven. 

Saturday we spent the day exploring. The highlights were the Pearl Farmer's Market. This is every Saturday and Sunday in the pearl district. For lunch, Zach enjoyed a gyro and I enjoyed a gluten free crepe. It was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was so fun. I absolutely recommend going. While you are there, check out Hotel Emma and go inside and look at the bar. So eclectic and unique! We weren't in the mood to drink when we walked in but had it been evening time, I likely would have enjoyed an adult beverage. 

One other spot we went to in the Pearl District was Lick Ice Cream. They had dairy free ice cream and it was fantastic. I enjoyed the Peanut Butter Brownie Swirl and Zach got the Cream Cheese Kolache. 

To finish the day of walking around up, we did the Riverwalk and enjoyed dinner at Acenar. I got the shrimp tacos and Zach had an enchilada plate. Another food win for the day! 

Sunday morning we woke up, went to Church with some friends in the area and then headed back to Abilene. It was a fantastic weekend. My idea of a great trip is good food and even better company. San Antonio provided me both... I'll absolutely be back. 😉
