This is the last trip I get to take with my kid before he goes to college out of state. He was supposed to go overseas but that trip was cancelled. So, before I unleash him on the world, we are going to do some stuff. We have been to the Ford Presidential Library and Museum, the Clinton Presidential Museum and we are going to hit here:
Home - The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum and The Sixth Floor Museum | The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza driving in. At some point we are going over to Austin to hit this one:
LBJ Presidential Library and the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue.

he has to see the Alamo and the other 4 missions.
San Antonio Missions National Historical Park (U.S. National Park Service)

We are going to go here:

I wouldn't mind hitting here:


That's the plan.
Better hurry.....they might not be around long.
Abbot needs to make up his mind. If Texas is going to shut back down then I will not be going there.
If you liked Trump's response to the Pandemic, you'll love Abbott's. He's 3X as clueless as the blob. I speak to someone in Texas every day just about--lots of family and friends down there. You can walk into one store in any town--you pick it--and nobody has a mask on and you're welcome to come in. You can walk into the same store later with a different manager on duty and you can't go in without a mask. Better to have the mask on you instead of being turned away is what I'm gathering. You can always take it off.

As for touristy things...the things that you'd probably be interested in; you're screwed if you're destination is any official government building. I suggest you stick with the attraction's websites for up to the minute information....I put some below

Natural Bridge Caverns | Naturally Amazing Surprisingly Open....

LBJ Presidential Library Closed

The Alamo Closed

Hotels in San Antonio TX | Official Site | The Historic Menger Hotel Honeymooned there with my spouse.... The Colonial Room brunch on weekends is not to be missed.

Black's BBQ Depends on what day you visit...excellent food most times; charred remains of a once proud animal others

Cooper's BBQ Consistently great but Blacks is better.

Maudie's Tex-Mex - Enjoy True Tex-Mex At Your Neighborhood Mexican Restaurant Outstanding place!

The Official San Antonio River Walk ehh....

Home - Buc-ees Bring your checkbook!

The Original Blanco cafe Closed Sunday....;-( Not to be missed

Where To Eat in Downtown San Antonio, TX | 24 Hour Restaurant Over-rated but a rite of passage for any tourist in SA

Salt Lick BBQ | Like No Other - Since 1967 Never saw what the big deal about this place was but the place is always packed.

Home - GRUENE HALL Closed but well worth the look

Also check out Hippie Hollow. If you dare.
Really? Hippie hollow?

It's a mom and son trip, you pervert.

Well, nearly all left wing politics is rooted in some sort sexual degeneracy and neurosis, so we can't expect them to have values and morals, they're too clueless about human empathy and lack the necessary awareness needed to develop that.

Austin is pretty awful due to the traffic. Takes forever to get anywhere during the daytime hours when everything is open. You might want to call ahead and make sure many of those places are open, as well; many have restricted hours or are closed due to the virus thing, and with the big upsurge in cases here it could change on a moment's notice.

Doesn't anybody ever go to Palo Duro Canyon or Big Bend any more? Who wants to see cites when on vacation?
I been planning a motorcycle camping trip to the Palo Duro canyon.
They have some really cool cabins you can stay in.
I haven't been in a while, but it used to be fun; everyone should go at least once. I like Big Bend and eastern OK and northern Arkansas better as far as local stuff goes, but even they get old after a while. It should make a good bike trip, yes.
