If you've not visited San Antonio, this is the perfect opportunity. The weather will be nice and they are so many historical sites to visit. Plan to stay an extra day or two if you can and take a cruise on the canal and shop at Market Center. Visit the bar in the hotel where Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders spent time and tour the hallway's historic memorabilia.
