St Patrick Day
San Antonio Travel Blog› entry 5 of 6 › view all entries
We tried our new bike for a road trip between Houston and San Antonio. The trip took us 5 hours to complete with many stops in between (as it really gave me pain in my butt to sit that long on a bike). We were travelling on St Patrick Day and took a room in the Marriott as we couldn't find a cheap hotel with decent parking lot (most of the cheap hotel has an outdoor parking lot only thus we were too afraid to leave our Harley there, considering it as not safe).
We only arrived on Saturday and plan to stay in San Antonio only until the day after. So we didn't really have a long time. The good thing is, it was a St Patrick Day celebration thus when we decided to enjoy the Riverwalk, there was this boat from many different organization wearing all green attire and there were many men-wearing kilt. Spending the whole day to enjoy a boat trip in the Riverwalk, we went to see Alamo, a historical building very close from the hotel we stayed in where the Battle of the Alamo took place.
The funny thing was, among many thing famous in San Antonio, the factory outlet was one of them. Proven by the question popped up during the boat trip on the riverwalk, the tour guide answerred that factory outlet is on the top 3 of most visited tourist area in San Antonio (and Texas in that matter).
