San Antonio Texas

san antonioKOA San Antonio/Alamo Texas

We spent 3 nights in San Antonio after leaving Fort Stockton – both to sightsee and rest.  We were looking to stay at a Coast to Coast park in San Antonio, but they were full when I tried to make reservations, so they suggested the KOA.

In California the KOA parks are pretty pricy, but this one was quite reasonable for everything it offers, plus we joined the KOA Rewards last month when we stayed in Salinas/Monterey KOA, so we received a 10% discount on this stay also, making it right in line with what we have been spending on regular campgrounds.


San Antonio/Alamo KOA

The San Antonio KOA park is big, and it is nice.  We made last minute reservations, and didn’t get a premium site, therefore it is a bit narrowSan Antonio for our rig, and we are watching that no one moves in and uses the firepit in the site next to us – too close.  But we are only 5 miles from the Riverwalk, which is where I wanted to visit.

Everyone here has been very nice.  They escort you to your site.  There is a very clean laundry room – had to break down and do laundry at this stop.  This KOA has a pizza concession that delivers to your site, which we took advantage of when we arrived – we drove 5-6 hours to get here plus we have to get used to the heat and humidity still!

They have good breakfast available at a very reasonable cost every morning.  Of course there is a pool, and also a fishing pond and creek alongside the property.  There is cable and good wifi – making it easier to job hunt-yes I really am trying to find a job 🙁

San Antonio Riverwalk

We decided to drive down to the Riverwalk – but I would recommend catching a bus or uber – the parking starts at $25/day.  And the fact that we had a big dually with a chrome wing on top made it even harder to get in/out of some of the parking lots and we didn’t fit in the garages.  But we did find a place, and walked down to the Riverwalk.

I decided the day before to purchase an Official Boat Cruise + Bus Hop-On Hop-Off at a discounted price.  I figured it would make it easier getting around to see what we wanted to see.  We really enjoyed the boat cruise, but I can’t say I was really impressed with the bus tour.  They didn’t give us a map of where to catch the bus, making it difficult.

The Alamo had construction around it and many parts of it were closed down.  But we did really enjoy the Riverwalk, but I have to say that John talking his walker made it more difficult as it isn’t really ADA friendly in a lot of places. But overall, it was a fun day.  Slideshow below of our tour…
