Day 1
November 29: Saturday: 
Excitement will be high as we depart the cold Midwest and head to the warmer temperatures of San Antonio to enjoy the Christmas Season on the River Walk.  Anytime of the year is a good time to visit the San Antonio Riverwalk, but the Christmas season is one of the best with flickering ‘luminarias’ lining both sides of the river  and more then 122,000 hanging lights among the trees.  There will be nightly carolers, shopping, dining, and an Arts and Craft Show along the River Walk on the weekend. We don’t want to miss the relaxing boat cruise meandering the 2 ½ mile El Paseo del Rio River!!!  We will be stopping for lunch near St. Louis and spending the night in Little Rock, AR .at the the Holiday Inn..    B

Our travels today will take us across Arkansas into Texas.  We will travel thru 3 different sections of Texas today…the Piney Woods, the Prairies and Lakes and  a small section of the Hill Country before we arrive in the San Antonio, located in the northern part of the Plains.  Our Lunch stop will be  at Luby’s Cafeteria and then on to our home for the next 4 nights…The Historical Menger Hotel.  The hotel is located across the street from the Alamo, with the Alamo Plaza right out our front door, a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the sounds and sites of San Antonio.   You will be steps away from the River Walk and also the River Walk Mall is next door to the hotel.  Enjoy the River Walk tonight or relax in our beautiful historical Menger Hotel.  Enjoy dinner at one of the many restaurants around our hotel, in our hotel or on the RiverWalk on your own.    BL
