I'm a lurker on my month board. I'm getting married July 29th. I am hoping you all can help me out.
FI and I finally (stress that finally) decided on a location for our honeymoon. We are going to San Antonio Texas. I saw it featured on foodtv with Rachael Ray's vacations and I found it an original destination. No one up here in New England would ever think to go to Texas, nor a city for a honeymoon. The trend up here is islands mostly.
So we have a small plan of what we want to do and plan to stay in a hotel on the River Walk. Walking around, trying places to eat, checking out/window shopping. Very basic plans.
We are also going to Sea World and going behind the scenes (yup paying a little extra to get up close and personal. I haven't been since I was a kid and that was in FL.)
So what I need from you.... What would you recommend for interesting things to do? Interesting from romantic to goofy. Also, please recommend places to eat. We loved BBQ food and a mission we have is to get a killer BBQ place. (Please note- we do not require upscale. We do find the best places are the hole-in-the-walls that only locals know about.)
We are also debating renting a car and driving over to Corpus Christi for a day; also not sure what is over there to do. I just want to be at the ocean for a day.
So any ideas/help would be beyond appreciated. Many many Thank yous for your help!
