Remember the Alamo.

Do you ever just feel the need to get out of town and take a break from your routine? I know I do, probably a little too often, if we're being honest here. Last Friday, the best friend and I decided we needed a break and took a day trip to San Antonio.

Sometime in the last two weeks, Hayden and I were talking about how I (a Texas resident) had never been to Mi Tierra, the most famous and delicious Mexican restaurant in San Antonio, and Hayden (a Florida resident) had been twice. We decided it was time to right this wrong and planned a whole day around eating Mexican food.

The weather just so happened to be absolutely gorgeous on Friday and we had such a nice time exploring San Antonio. When I'm traveling, I'm always reminded that no matter how many times you visit a city, there is always something else left to discover. San Antonio is full of hidden gems and is such a beautiful and historical city.

Hayden and I started our day by visiting the St. Mark's Episcopal Church where LBJ and Lady Bird Johnson got married in 1934. We then went to Remember the Alamo and explore the grounds around the Alamo in Downtown. After that, we roamed around the Riverwalk before heading to lunch. It was finally time for me to finally try Mi Tierra and, let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I'm convinced their tortillas are handmade by angels.

We also went to some of the missions at the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, which were beautiful. We ended the day at the Mad Hatter's Tea House, an adorable place with some delicious cheesecake. Sadly, I was so enamored by the cheesecake I forgot to take any photos of this cozy, little, Alice in Wonderland house.

So, if you're ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping by San Antonio and exploring it just a tad bit. It has quite a lot to offer (and eat).

Until next time, H
