    Laredo sucks and it is our 1st anniversary this weekend and so I booked up two nights at the Drury Plaza Hotel at the Riverwalk, and made reservations at Biga on the Banks. That takes care of Sunday night. What are some gotta see or do things for all day Monday thru Tuesday morning?

    Riverwalk is the place!
    I love the historical places at street level.
    El Mercado is a 10 minute walk.
    Howl at the moon is entertaining. (Get there early)
    Buckhorn and Ranger museum.

    The Alamo, but I'm sure that is already on your list.

    The funny thing is, I live here but rarely get down there anymore unless I have people visiting from out of town.

    I've never been but have been hearing how awesome the riverwalk is for a long time so I'm hoping it is half as good as I hear. She went about 10 years ago when she had just moved stateside and was going to college in Houston. Some friends of mine were stationed in El Paso used to go occasionally and always had some good things to say too. Compared to Laredo I'm sure it'll be heavenly no matter what.

    Yeah not sure how I forgot to mention the Alamo that is definitely on the list for Monday morning or on the way out Tuesday. Maybe we'll get to see the basement.

    Downtown and walking distance is full of stuff.

    Want to CHOW down, get a great show and eat more meat than you every have then go to Texas De Brazil (Its across from the Lone Star Hall of horns museum IIRC, walking distance, WOW San Antonio | Texas de Brazil

    Howl at the Moon. Been there and a LOT of fun

    The Mercado is only a couple of blocks away and is fun to see the things for sale

    There is no shortage of things to do downtown in SA its hopping, have fun...

    See the Alamo ASAP as its in the process of being turned over to the United Nations and the Feds, only God knows how that will turn out. No doubt Jim Bowie will be a Gay, Davy Crockett will be a Transgender, Col Travis was a black slave who dressed in 'white face' and it was the folks at the Alamo who attacked Santa Anna and his 5000 men, slaughtering them and they were only defending themselves...

    You need to try Taco Taco. Not too far from downtown. Only open 6am to 2pm. Voted best tacos in America by Bon Apetite mag. Was also on Triple D.
