Yeah

Like said city is sprawling and sucks but one year they got a budget to build an artists rendering "arts and entertainment" district and it seems very forced and there's a cupcake shop that sucks and a gallery with bad art and a non chain restaurant that is bad


I heard a craft brewery just opened up on the Riverwalk. Supposedly the restaurant in there serves a burger with—get this—an egg on it!

Not San Antonio. Future president Julian Castro really fixed that place up. I heard their riverwalk just got a new brewpub that serves a burger with—get this—an egg on it! Enjoy specialty burgers! enjoy craft beers! Enjoy San Antonio!

My last year in Tampa they really did up the "riverfront" and tried to make it a destination

It's too hot to be there 11 months of the year but that one month ... it still sucks


where i'm from in fl, the riverfront area started being the 'hot spot' and the signature *thing* was called "alive after 5"
because usually everything was dead and closed by 5. often earlier.

The Riverwalk was magic when I visited as a kid

Went back in my twenties and there was basically nobody there

Like I dreamed about San Antonio as a boy

That said proximity to Schlitterbahn makes it appealing still

I'm the only adult that likes waterparks right
