Travel Tips for San Antonio

JOHN N. GARNER HOUSE - UVALDE

by mtncorg

Almost ninety miles west of San Antonio is the modest town of Uvalde. This was where John Nance 'Cactus Jack' Garner hailed from. Garner enjoyed a long and memorable political career entering the US House of Representatives in 1902. He had moved to Uvalde in 1893, serving as a county judge and State legislator where he introduced bills to divide Texas into five separate States - in order to counter New England congressional strength - and to change the State flower - the bluebonnet - with the cactus. Both bills were defeated, but Garner did gain a nickname for his efforts. Eventually, Garner became the Speaker of the House and was a formidable opponent for the Democratic choice for President in 1932. When he stepped aside for Franklin Roosevelt, FDR made Garner his Vice Presidential candidate. After their election, Garner used his intimate congressional knowledge to become the most powerful vice president in history - Dick Cheney could only so aspire - and the second most powerful American politician during the 1930's. After two terms as Vice President, Garner broke with FDR over FDR's decision to run for a third term in 1940. Garner then retired to this house that his wife, Ettie, had been the original stimulus for. Ettie - who had long served her husband as his personal secretary and advisor - died in 1948 and Garner gave the house to the town to serve as its library while he moved to a little white house in the back. That house was demolished after his death in 1967, but the main house has become a museum dedicated to the life of one of the true godfathers of Texan politics. The museum is administered by the University of Texas at Austin.

Open Tuesday-Saturday 9 am to 5 pm. Located on Park Street which is a residential street away from the two main highways which run through Uvalde. The house is north of the main east-west highway, US 90, on which their are directional signs to look for. It is west of the main north-south highway, US 83 - Getty Street - on which there were no directional signs because of ongoing construction at the time of my visit.

El Mirador

by Ewingjr98

After dropping off our rental car at Enterprise on S St Mary's we asked the friendly guy at the counter for a lunch suggestion in the area. Without any hesitation, he recommended El Mirador, a pleasant Mexican restaurant just 2 or 3 buildings down. We walked over and were immediately impressed by the great smell of tasty Mexican food. I also noticed the restaurant had a lively and colorful interior and a friendly staff. After being seated we ordered Tecate and water while looking at the menu. I decided to try the daily special, which on Friday was the Enchiladas Mexicanos--cheese enchiladas with a red sauce, beans, rice, and potatoes. My friend had the enchiladas with green chile sauce. Both meals were excellent...in my opinion the best food we had in 3 days in the city. Cost of the meal was about $7 per plate plus drinks. Only negative...chips and salsa are $1 per bowl after the first one.

Visit the Alamo but don't spend too much time here

by dtimoske

Sure, you've got to visit the Alamo because it's where Davy Crockett fought against the Mexican Army under General Santa Anna. This is a must stop and a great place to take a photo, but many tourists are disappointed by the Alamo. There's a museum inside, but you really only need about 30 minutes to take in the experience.

River Walk

by bct341

The Paseo del Rio, in the heart of downtown, is the pride of the city. Lush green foliage lines the banks of this peaceful, historic river. Cobblestone walkways lead visitors to the river-level restaurants and shops. The river bubbles to the surface on the grounds of the University of the Incarnate Word and flows to downtown and beyond, threading its way through the city one level below the hustle and bustle of city streets. First called Yanaguana by the Payaya Indians, meaning "place of refreshing waters." Along the horseshoe shaped riverbend, the river is shaded by towering cypresses, oaks and willows and bordered by gardens of flowering ornamental plants. River cruisers travel the River Walk’s three miles past unique retail shops, restaurants and nightclubs.

Hmm, won't talk about almost falling into the river and other interesting times haha

Great place to hang out with friends..or to meet new ones.
