San Antonio Tourist is SEVEN!


SEVEN!San Antonio Tourist is SEVEN! Since June of 2010, I’ve been blogging about fun things to do and see in the Alamo City. Thanks for exploring with me!

Besides celebrating San Antonio Tourist’s seventh birthday, we are also celebrating that this blog was turned into a book, “100 Things To Do in San Antonio Before You Die,” by Reedy Press in March 2016. You may purchase it online through Amazon or directly from Barnes & Noble, The Twig, Whole Foods, Half Price Books across from North Star Mall and on Broadway, San Antonio Museum of Art gift shop and Fiesta on Main. Your support is much appreciated.

I encourage you to use the book like a passport. Every time you visit one of the 100 things, write the date you did it, the names of your sidekicks and a favorite memory. It’ll become a cherished keepsake. Buy copies for your friends and family members so they can play along!

Please like my Facebook page so you’ll never miss a post. If you’re not an email subscriber of San Antonio Tourist, please click on the three, stacked horizontal lines in the upper-right corner and type in your email address so that you remain in the loop.

One of the best things about writing this blog is the friendships I’ve made with other San Antonio bloggers. Please follow @SATXBloggers on Twitter. You’ll be amazed by the talented, caring and interesting bloggers here in the Alamo City. Join us!

Use this alpha-ordered list of all of my San Antonio Tourist blog posts since June 2010 to plan your next adventure.

¡Viva San Antonio!

Con cariño, Denise
