San Antonio - Instagrammable Weekend Getaway

Welcome to San Antonio, home to the picturesque Riverwalk and known for it's rich history of the Alamo. All you need is a long weekend in San Antonio to experience and see everything there is to offer!

If you're ready to experience luxury firsthand, along the Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio, then look no further. The Thompson Hotel elevates itself to an unmatched level. Its prime location along the Riverwalk, rooftop views from the pool deck, and exquisite dining experiences make for a stellar vacation. Let's take a peek inside!

Step into the incredible skyline suite with me. You'll be welcomed among an entire wall full of floor to ceiling windows, fully stocked wet bar for entertaining, plush sitting area, and a master suite that overlooks the gorgeous freestanding soaking tub pictured below.

Located on the fourth-floor rooftop is an expansive pool-deck surrounded with cabanas and lounge spaces overlooking downtown San Antonio. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind while soaking in the Texas heat!

Now, grab your boots girl and let's explore the city!

The Hayden: 4025 Broadway St., San Antonio, TX 78209

Welcome to this old school diner with a charming southern vibe! From the Instagrammable interior to the mouth-watering dishes you'll see below - The Hayden is absolute breakfast GOALS! As the neon sign says, "I'll have what she's having"...and secretly I hope it's a double order of the Hayden Cake Stacks (yum)!

Bakery Lorraine: 306 Pearl Pkwy #110, San Antonio, TX 78215

Rated one of the top ten bakeries in the U.S....need I say more? Bakery Lorraine has dessert covered, so your sweet tooth cravings are about to be met! Grab a latte and an assortment of macaroons and enjoy the The Pearl shopping district where Bakery Lorraine is located!

Sweet Paris: 15900 La Cantera Pkwy, Suite 19160, San Antonio, TX 78256

Do you spot *Hanna in Paris?! I felt as if I were the main character in Emily in Paris at this charming Parisian café! If you're searching for a small piece of Paris while in Texas, make sure to add Sweet Paris to your travel itinerary. I highly recommend ordering the Cookies N' Dreams and Apple Cinnamon Crème Brûlée crepes. Lastly, don't skip out on the Instagrammable moment of the cappuccino with the Eiffel Tower on top!

Where to go for - Brunch/Lunch

Box Street Social: 623 Hemisfair Blvd, Ste 108, San Antonio, TX 78205

If you're into great food and beachy pink aesthetics, you're going to love this new brunch spot! This has to be one of the most Instagrammable restaurants I have been to, from the picture perfect cocktails and dishes to the entire vibe and music. As the mural says, It's all good baby baby!

Moon's Daughters at Thompson Hotel: 115 Lexington Ave, San Antonio, TX 78205

Located on the 20th story rooftop of The Thompson is Moon's Daughters. Perched above the city with an indoor-outdoor lounge, surrounded by wrap around terrace views, is this iconic rooftop. Enjoy daytime views of the entire downtown and Riverwalk or sit under the stars and watch the sunset with cocktail in hand. It's the perfect spot for a rooftop brunch with the girls or a romantic date night.

Where to go for - Dinner

Landrace at Thompson Hotel: 115 Lexington Ave, San Antonio, TX 78205

Welcome to this landmark restaurant known for the most celebrated chef in all of San Antonio! With floor to ceiling windows, overlooking the Riverwalk, and located at The Thompson is Landrace. With a focus in local and fresh Texas ingredients, be ready for your mouth to be watering. From their seasonal menu I ordered the Gnocchi which was full of flavor and you cannot pass up the Berkshire Pork Chop (best Pork Chop I've had to date).
