Mission tour in and around SA. In Fredericksburg (N x 70 miles) the Museum of the Pacific War & Nimitz museum. Great shopping and stores in F'burg. German food. Gruen is also interesting. Bat cave near Sisterdale. Great cafe near there.

https://www.lonelyplanet.com/usa/texas/hill-country

Also, President Johnson`s ancestral home, western white house, home & ranch, Presidential aircraft (Lockheed Jetstar), cars in Johnson City. Ladybird Johnson Park.

Luchenbach. Where everyone is somebody.

Medina. Famous apple dumplings and pasties ! West from Medina (by car!!!!!) to Utopia and Vanderpool to the Lost Maples Natural Area. Loop N & NW to Kerrville. Great drive through the Hill Country.

South of Kerrville on 173 is Camp Verde. Great country store & restaurant. Where the Army had their "camel corps" beginnings.

DO NOT TAKE CLASS A NORTH OF MEDINA ON RT 16 TO KERRVILLE!!!! EVER!!

Several nice RV parks in Kerrville & Fredricksburg.

Go for a hike at Government Canyon SP: https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/government-canyon


Book a tour at a new canyon which was formed when Canyon Lake overflowed in 2007:

Eat Mexican food at most any Mexican restaurant with "Taqueria" in its name. Drive around and look for the small non-chain restaurants.

The one we eat at all the time is https://www.yelp.com/biz/taqueria-ch...-san-antonio-3 It is a ways from downtown, out near I-35 and Loop 410.

If you like shopping and junk food, go to the Market Square and wander around in the shops. Also, there is a huge outlet mall in San Marcos which is easy driving distance from San Antonio.

You can also see Natural Bridge Caverns. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attracti...nio_Texas.html

All the above!

Next to Natural Bridge Cavern is the drive through ZOO,
Canyon Lake Dam.
From Canyon Lake Dam take River road. Follow it from the 4th landing to the 1st landing. Water flow is from 1st to 4th if you want to tube it. The ride down river road is very nice. Busy on weekends in the summer. Gruene, TX, (Prounced Green) is a quaint little town with a old time dance hall and a good resturant. They also have a wine tasting store and a lot of varieties of Texas beer, Shiner Bock.



San Antonio is a great place to visit.

If you want something you'll remember for years try Barney Smith's Toilet Seat Museum at 239 Abiso Ave, San Antonio, TX 78209.

By appointment only.

Barney is 98 I think and can barely walk. The museum is in his garage. He has been on national talk shows over the years. We went in December of 2017. Because of his age I do not know if he is still giving the free tours of his artwork.

A Google search will give you the Facebook page his relative runs for him and the info you need.

This was our favorite San Antonio stop.

We blogged about it here:
http://walkaboutwithwheels.blogspot.com/2017/12/touring-barney-smiths-toilet-seat.html?m=1

Hope it is still available to see.

Wow, I live 17 miles north of SA, and while I agree with all the suggestions I would have been hard pressed to come up with them all.

Johnson City and the LBJ ranch is one of the top. Boerne, Fredericksburg and Kerrvile for sure. Really the entire Hill Country is interesting. From the LBJ Ranch to Fredericksburg is the center of the Texas wine country. There are nearly a dozen vineyards along that road. All have tours and tasting rooms. Many even have Chateaus now.

Great BBQ all around there. Take your pick.

Our favorite Mexican is La Fonda on Main. There are other La Fonda’s in the area, owned by different people and only the “on Main” one is what we recommend.

Have fun.
