San Antonio Takes Top Billing in Charming Cities of the South Listing

By  | 

CNN has recently named “15 Charming Cities in the American South…”, and San Antonio, here in the Texas Hill Country, took top billing. Listing great places to eat, stay, and play, they weren’t saying anything that we haven’t already figured out, but now the entire nation will soon catch on!

Of course, the River Walk made their announcement, along with wonderful eateries, the live music scene, one great place to stay, and they didn’t forget to remember the Alamo. But outside of these points which could be found in a Fodor’s travel guide, they’ve overlooked some of the reasons San Antonians call this place home, and people of the Hill Country and the great state of Texas love to visit!

There’s paddling, biking, and hiking that can be done locally. Mission tours to be taken, Spurs games to attend, markets to shop at, and cafés to try which should also be on your list. Some of the best and most interesting authentic ethnic foods to be had are available here in the city, and, even better, some fantastic Texas barbecue. If you haven’t yet been to this great city on the outer edge of the Texas Hill Country, you’re missing out on more than just its charm. And, it all happens here in the Alamo City!
