Sightseeing
A Must See: The Alamo’s 1836 Battlefield has been lost for nearly two centuries since that dramatic battle. The Mexican army tore down the compound’s outer walls in May of 1836. This left just two structures, the Alamo Church and Long Barrack. San Antonio grew up with the Alamo at its heart, with streets and buildings now occupying the site of the most sacred battle in Texas history. The walls enclosing the gardens behind the Alamo today, as well as the gift shop and other structures around the complex, were added a century or more after the battle.

Only 28 miles from Fredericksburg, Johnson City's main attraction is his boyhood home, the Texas White House and the state park. But, while the center feature, there is more to see: good wineries and distilleries, good food, the Perdernales Falls State Park, a Zoo and the Science Mill, an interactive learning environment for all ages. See cutting-edge exhibits, games and special programs, and it's generally not crowded and has plenty of parking.

Historic with great food. Built next door to the Alamo in 1859, the Menger has hosted guests such as Teddy Roosevelt, Oscar Wilde, Babe Ruth and other figures of history. It boast the original neoclassical Victorian Lobby, fine antiques and artwork, the bountiful courtyard garden, historic photographs, and a guest registry dating from a century ago. Visit the place where Texas cattle-trading folks stayed a century ago. You will not only marvel at the architecture, you will love the cuisine.

When my husband and I want to celebrate Myron’s Prime Steakhouse is the place we go. And there are two in our vicinity, only 20 minutes from home. They serve Midwestern corn fed USDA Prime Beef which is the top 2% of the nation’s total beef production. Each short loin is hand-picked, dry-aged for 14 days, and then wet-aged for 28 days, a unique process that naturally tenderizes the beef and enhances its characteristic flavor. If you've never had select prime steak, you're in for a treat. Of course they have shrimp and other delightful dishes too.

BBQ is Texas, and one of the best BBQ's is only 20 minutes away. Whether you're having beef ribs,brisket, pork loin, sausage or prime rib, it all goes down smoothly with a cold beer. I personally recommend Cooper's as one of Texas finest - and Texas has a lot of BBQ.

If you like sea food, this restaurant is the best in my opinion. I go there for a variety of sea food: fresh ceviche, oysters on the half shell, seafood boil, and of course, their delicious shrimp dishes. I recommend it highly.
