Yeah I liked the rivercenter, Alamo, the dining, and the atmosphere. I like the way that the Riverwalk is presented as more of a public park than just a "draw" (even though it is) I walked EVERYWHERE! And it was so easy to get back to my hotel. i could stroll along the river or head straight for the "Big" Drury and Tower of Life (is that correct?)

I was also impressed by the intricate details on the buildings. Especially the gargoyles on the tower of life. I'm so jealous!!!!!

Nice shot. I haven't seen much from that angle. What intersection is that? I can't quite read the street signs.

Fredericksburg @ Balcones Heights Rd. It's right as you're entering back into SA proper from Balcones Heights.

That is a good angle, although I like the view from Bandera Rd and Evers even better because you can see all six of the tallest buildings as well as Vidorra.

Dramatically better is right...it's almost like it's a different city

^^^That car looks kind of lonely sitting there.

The Marriott Rivercenter is lookin a little rough next to its new neighbor, like it needs a bit of a scrubbing.

Oh wow. Grand Hyatt looks quite beautiful in those shots in your 2nd to last post. Very nice! The glass and those colored panels really saved this building. Great contrasts of colors going on there. I like it.
