...and we are looking for advice on the whole San Antonio experience: places to eat, places to stay, things to do.
Regarding places to stay: we could, of course, stay in one of the chains (probably quite happily), but we're interested in high quality Texas B&Bs or small inns around San Antonio, if anyone knows of any.
I haven't been to Texas for over 20 years, and my wife has never been there. We are from NYC (live in Brooklyn, work in Manhattan), and we are long-time restaurant-goers. We are going to be in S.A. for about a week, so we have the time and the inclination to try a number of different places.
Any great old-time restaurants that have been around for years that are local legends? Any places that make you proud to be a Texan?
And what about surrounding areas? We'll have a car and we're willing to do day trips to broaden our experience.
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
