looks like a very attractive (though very touristy) city. I hope to visit one day.

Where is this at? I've been all over the city, but I've never run into anything that looks remotely close to it.

Great Pics! San Antonio has to be one of the most underrated and diverse cities in the U.S.

As far as I'm concerned, it's one of the most stunning cities in North America. I don't expect anyone to agree with me, but I'd put it 2nd behind only Vancouver ...maybe 3rd behind San Fran. I'm absolutely in love with San An Tone.

...it is so much different than "the rest" of Texas, which I as well am not a big fan of.
