We had a great time last weekend trippin’ with a group of fans to San Antonio! Hanging with Daytrippers is a great way to spend a Saturday! We headed out with full stomachs thanks to Rudy’s Country Store and Bar-B-Q. This trip had a mix of stops from our San Antonio episode and a few other locations as well.
We started out visiting Mission San Jose and Mission Conception with a guided tour from Park Ranger extraordinaire, Tatum Weeks. There’s a lot of history to learn about the Missions. Next stop lunch…seriously…a Daytripper Bus Tour wouldn’t be legit without plenty of food and the folks over at El Mirador did not disappoint. Classic Tex-Mex and margaritas hit the spot. They recently got a nod from Texas Monthly in the article, “Southtown and Down.”
After a morning outside and a heavy meal, the group was ready for some time inside and what better way to learn more about this great state than a stop at the Institute of Texas Cultures. Not only is this part of UTSA but it is associated with the Smithsonian Institute as well. A few of us wandered over to La Villita for some shopping and watched Chet try to lasso a few Daytrippers. Last stop of the day was Beethoven Maennerchor where we enjoyed some German beer, great German food and learned a few new German drinking songs. Fun way to end the day in San Antonio.
But there was one more surprise on the way home, these Trippers got a sneak peek of Season 6 by watching the first episode of the new season premiering in October. We are excited about this new season and there are some cool episodes and adventures in store.
We had a great day in San Antonio and look forward to more Daytripper bus trips in the future. In fact, mark your calendars for October 4. We will be doing a North Texas Wine Tour trip out of Grapevine. Seats go on sale on Monday!!
Until then, have a great weekend, hit the road for a Daytrip before school starts on Monday and “Vaya Con Dios!”
