San Antonio & Corpus Christi, Texas : Trip Report
Jump to:

My wife got sent for a several day business trip to San Antonio in October of 2001. Since the weater was already starting to suck in Chicago and I've never been to San Antonio I happily went along.

While there we visited the Alamo, the other Spanish Missions and enjoyed restaurants along the River Walk. Once I ran out of things to do on my own in San Antonio I drive around 150 miles to Corpus Christi on the Gulf of Mexico coast to see what was shaking there.
