SAN ANTONIO– What do the River Walk in San Antonio and Bryant-Denny Stadium on the University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa have in common?
Drum roll ……
They’re both the top tourist attractions in their respective states.
I was shocked to learn that the River Walk, which I took in Wednesday night at the end of my first day of my first visit to San Antonio, was the number-one tourist attraction in Texas.
I mean — it’s nice and a great place to get some exercise and step away from the air conditioned convention center or hotel meeting rooms.
But, number-one in a large state like Texas?
I’m not sure this is quite the “destination” that the home of one of the top college football programs in the nation is.
I haven’t walked the entire route yet. I only experienced part of it. I haven’t visited The Alamo. Maybe that’s what will seal the tourist deal for me.
