My wife and I will be visiting San Antonio next month. We've never been there and I'm wondering what things we might do while we are there. I'm looking to treat her to a great weekend and want to do things that she will enjoy, but I'm clueless as to what they might be! Any help would be appreciated.

I really don't want to sound like a jerk or anything, but I would say you have a lot bigger problems then trying to figure out a vacation in another city.

If it is just for the weekend, then a stay at one of the riverwalk hotels with dinner at any of the riverwalk restaurants will be a safe bet for a fun filled weekend for a married couple. That is my short answer.

Maybe I should have worded that differently! I know what she likes, I was just looking for suggestions as to what we could do. She's a photographer and she likes history, Mexican food, wine (craft beer for me) and old-style architecture...We are staying on the Riverwalk.

Stay on the riverwalk for sure, and then take her to on the Mission Trail to see all the missions. Any photographer would LOVE those, and it would make for a full, fun weekend for someone that likes history, Mexican food and wine/beer. Maybe include the Segway tour of the city, which is a lot of fun. We have done it 4 times now with friends visiting and I get as much a kick out of it as they have!

Better to do a FEW things well than try to cram too much into it and feel like you "shortchanged" everything.

And, of course - the Alamo - and the Menger immediately adjacent!

Depending on your schedule, you might also consider a trip for dinner to Mi Tierra. Located on the west side of downtown, it's an iconic eatery. We don't go any longer since they posted it 30.06, but it was a "must go" for many years with out of town guests. Are there better places? IMO, absolutely - but the place is legendary among many travelers and locals.

A GREAT place for breakfast or lunch is Schiloh's over off of Commerce, just about a block down from the Convention Center. It's been there since 1919 - they literally had to build a parking garage over/around it! It's an old German deli with a long tradition here in SA, and serves some of the best German food at a VERY reasonable price.
