The Riverfront.

When I advised people (that basically means mostly bloggers) I was going to San Antonio, the first thing everyone said was that I could not leave San Antonio without checking out The Riverfront. When Sean said that was his plan for my first day I knew that this meant he was told the same thing. It was beautiful. I love to see people hang outdoors during the warmer weather because everyone just looks happier.

Smiles are a lot easier to come by during the warmer months than when you're trudging through snow in the blistering cold.
I'm still uncertain whether my hair loved San Antonio or hated it. I think she mostly hated it.

We decided we wanted to be extra touristy and do the boat ride and I'm so glad we did it because we were able to see all of it. At least, I think it was all of it. Our tour guide gave us information about the buildings around us but of course I can't remember much of it. Boo to me.

If I didn't know that the "comfortable" weather in Texas is 90 degrees I seriously wouldn't mind living here but 90 degrees! Yeah, I don't think I would make it. Funnily, Sean would tell me on the phone how warm it was and how there was no rain since he's been in Texas and of course I get there and it rains, (not a crazy amount) thunders and was pretty cool in temperature. Jen told me she appreciated the rain I brought with me from PA. You're welcome Texas ;).

I'm going to stop here because that's already picture overload but y'all already know how I do. A lot more to come!

i've never been to san antionio, but it looks beautiful. and ya i don't doubt that's comfortable weather. vegas summers are killer, so i'm sure texas is only worse. also can't wait for more photos.

The weather is beautiful , I guess because I live in the tropics so i have become accustomed to it. I have never been to San Antonio but its beautiful. Great captures as always.

Love everything in this post: I've been to the Riverwalk many a time! On your boat tour, did they show you the spots where "Selena" and "Miss Congeniality" were filmed? Fun little tidbits! And of course, the Mexican food... YUMMM! 90 degrees is warm here, but wait until it gets in the TRIPLE digits. Whew!

I've never been to San Antonio, but my mom told me that the Riverfront was her favorite part! It looks darling. Very cute outfit, by the way!

Those pictures are fabulous. I've never been to San Antonio either, but I really want to go to The Riverfront now. It looks like such a fun spot.

No need to stop! I am traveling vicariously through you. :) San Antonio looks gorgeous. I've never been to TX. I was going to try and attend a blog conference there in November... but I've blown my blog budget with the 2 conferences I am already attending. lol. Maybe next year!

Desiree Macke said...

San Antonio looks awesome. We've never been, but have heard how awesome the Riverfront is. Looks amazing!!

Christine said...

Love your pictures! I've never been to San Antonio, but you're making me want to go now!

Heather said...

Wow, what a beautiful place! I definitely want to visit San Antonio someday. I love and totally agree with this quote, too: Smiles are a lot easier to come by during the warmer months than when you're trudging through snow in the blistering cold. :)

Ashley R said...

San Antonio has never been on my radar, but now I am feeling it is a must do! It looks so lovely and lively!

Gorgeous pictures. And in the South 90 is comfortable, not for me, but believe when it is 100 degrees outside you appreciate the 90 degree weather. At least I try not to complain. LOL!

Brittany said...

Oooh I LOVE the Riverwalk! So glad y'all enjoyed it! I haven't been in probably over 10've made me wanna go back now. These pictures are perfection; they look like something out of Texas Monthly magazine. SERIOUSLY! You need a portfolio, girl! You're a photographer!!

Lovelyladyjb said...

Beautiful! I have family down in SA and they have told me to come visit so we can go down to the riverfront to hang out! Looks like it is lovely, which only makes me that much more anxious to visit them! :)

Cece said...

I've heard of this place!!!! Glad you got to see it.

EmilyJane said...

I always think of the movie Selena when I see picture of the Riverfront in San Antonio. Not sure why it always stand out HAHA.

It's been in the 90s here too the last couple of weeks. I loved the photographs it looks like you had an amazing time!

Pegster said...

Your pics are incredible. You make me want to go back to San Antonio like now. Glad you got to spend some time with Sean. I am having some Faith and Sean pics withdrawal :). More pics please.

Morgan said...

Haha, I live in AL and 90 degrees in summer is pretty normal unfortunately. You do get used to it though. There are days where it gets up to 100 and if people ask me to walk to another building at work, I'm like no....

The Riverwalk is my favorite place in all of San Antonio! So glad you got to check it out. I wish you could see it lit up at Christmastime. It's so romantic and beautiful!
