Visiting San Antonio, TX

I will be in San Antonio, TX next week for business and hope to find time to go take some photos...debating on taking the K-5 or Q, maybe both. I will be staying downtown along the River Walk. I was there last August and did the tourist stuff...The Alamo. Any suggestions?? I will have a car. I do landscape, fine art and street photo mostly.

If you haven't done so already, check out the LaVillita area near downtown - lots of arts/crafts/fine arts, etc. Of course the Missions offer quite a few photo ops - I think there are five of them, each a bit different. I believe there are crafts/arts on display in the Tower of the Americas area - and some very nice fountains near the tower itself. Hmm, I guess I just listed some of the usual tourist places Marble Falls is pretty scenic - it's about an hour north of SA on 281.

I'm hoping to do the same as you one of these days - to check out the 'other' areas of SA, bypassing the usual Riverwalk, Sea World, etc. My trips have all been of the family-outing variety. Enjoy your visit!

Well, I've just checked out the Panoramio layer on Wikimapia and see a place called Natural Bridge Caverns located about 20 miles north that look kinda interesting.
