Visiting History in San Antonio

While I was visiting San Antonio in December of 2016, it was raining hard. We arrived Friday to heavy rain, and the rain didn’t let up all weekend. I did not get the opportunity to visit and explore the Riverwalk, even though the hotel I stayed at was on the Riverwalk. The Riverwalk was shut down most of the time due to flooding from the rain. I truly only got the time to visit one place. My family and I are planning another trip back to San Antonio so we can actually do some sightseeing.

The Alamo: I’ve always wanted to see the Alamo and now I am finally getting to see it.

We looked looked around, doing our own self guided tour. My dad told us to touch the wall and we all did. Then he said “You are now touching and experiencing history”. This stayed with me and it is something I will never forget. I didn’t take too many pictures due to the rain, but if you ever go to San Antonio, be sure to visit the Alamo. 

Since it was raining hard on and off, more raining than off. It had started to rain and we decided we better head back to our hotel. It had started to rain harder, and harder. We had just made it back to our hotel when it started to downpour. Later on that evening it stopped enough for us to venture out to dinner. We didn’t get to walk along the River walk. It was announced that it was closed due to flash flood warning. That meant of course, that the restaurants and shops were closed due to the flash flood warning. 

My family and I are planning another trip to San Antonio since there is so much we didn’t get to see and do. We just hope it won’t be raining when we go back.
