National Sports Festivals
San Antonio is one of the major places around the country where there is likely always a sporting event of some sort being held there. It has played the host to multiple Final Four College Basketball Tournaments, NCAA Football events including the Alamo Bowl, and several others. The reason San Antonio is such a popular location is the great weather typically, as well as the plethora of hotels available, and the close proximity of the Alamo Dome which has a very large capacity for these events.

La Marginal!! Not Mexican,...
La Marginal!! Not Mexican, but wonderful just the same.
Price is right, location isn't too hard to find, food is good and plentiful. La Marginal is a Puerto Rican restaurant in the middle of San Antonio with food that tastes like you are in San Juan. Our favorite items on the menu would include the pernil (roasted pork), pastelillos, relleno de papas, arroz con gandules, and for dessert tembleque.

Various food booths, wherever and whenever there is a festival (which is almost monthly in San Antonio).
Check out my Fiesta Foods Travelogue. Warning: It may make you hungry. Roasted corn, BBQ brisket, Tripas Tacos, Fajitas, Gorditas, Blooming Onions, Calf Fries (only at NIOSA during Fiesta), Fried Green Tomatoes, Fat Bread, Picadillo. Actually, I like just about anything!
This area next to the city's center is definitely worth a visit for the Museum of Texan Cultures, which is very detailed and informative. It even features an exhibit on Sorbs (not Serbs, but rather a Slavic nation which lives in Eastern Germany). The tower over it allows great panoramic views.
