We started with The Tower of the Americas for a panoramic view of the city.
From there we walked past the Menger Hotel - it was recommended as an option for our hotel, but once they mentioned it was haunted, I said no. Ha! I am a light sleeper with an active imagination. ;)
This hotel is known for its beauty and historic roster of guests from Civil War generals to Teddy Roosevelt who organized his "rough riders" for the Spanish-American War to Babe Ruth.
Above: main lobby, Below: inner courtyard.
From there, we walked to the Alamo - which prohibits photos inside.
Luckily, the line moves quickly. . .
After the Alamo we walked to the Riverwalk, and hopped on for boat tour.
We left right before the traffic for the NBA Finals game (Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs) began. When we were in the Tower, we met a guy who came all the way from France to see the game in person! Crazy!
Tomorrow: final installment of the trip
