I must have been a tour guide in a past life. I do love putting together an exceptional itinerary.

For those who don’t, never fear! I’m here with a ready-made long weekend itinerary for you and your loved ones to enjoy. Adjust as needed/desired.

I tend to be a go-go-go person who crams as much as possible into a 24-hour period, but that might not be you. Don’t worry. You’ll just have to schedule future trips to experience all that is wonderful in the Alamo City.

For out of towners who want to avoid renting a car, check out VIA’s #7 Sightseer Special.
