A walking tour of downtown San Antonio is a great way to see some of the key landmarks and attractions along with possibly stumbling across some hidden gems. This is exactly what we did following the culmination of our San Antonio Mission Trail. Given our time constraints, we did drive from each of the Missions to the final stop – the Alamo, but after parking downtown, we headed on a tour of the city for the afternoon.
Downtown San Antonio boasts several lovely places to grab breakfast by the river, but none have the same stunning glass sunroom as Ocho. Open from early morning until midnight, Ocho in Hotel Havana makes a stunning stop for design lovers to grab a coffee or a cocktail.
For over a century, this area north of downtown San Antonio operated as a brewery; today Pearl is as popular culinary gathering spot. Take a weekend cooking class or pull up a seat at eclectic restaurants, from Mexican fare at La Gloria to 5-star Italian cuisine at Il Sogno Osteria.
