My friend Connor came to visit me in San Antonio over the Veteran’s day weekend. I love that Connor visits me everywhere I go (the lucky duck gets to fly for free. I’m so jealous of how much he gets to travel). So far he has visited me in Colorado, Alabama and now Texas. I have so many photos to share from his visit so I will be breaking them down into a few different posts.
On the first day Connor was here I decided to take him to my favorite Mexican restaurant, Mi Tierra’s in Market Square. Mi Tierra is such a fun, vibrant and delicious restaurant/bakery that is open 24 hours a day. I highly recommend going there if you are ever in San Antonio, it is a place you won’t forget. After fueling up on some amazing food, we wandered around all of the little shops in Market Square. Market Square is the largest Mexican market in the United States and a fantastic place to find little trinkets, beautiful ceramic art/pots/dishes ect. My favorite thing about Market Square is just how colorful and vibrant the entire area is.
Once we were done at the Market Square, we loaded up into the truck and headed to Mission San Jose. There are 5 missions in San Antonio and all of them (except for the Alamo) are free to visit. Mission San Jose, also known as the Queen of Missions, is the largest mission in San Antonio and was home to about 350 people +livestock in the mid 1700’s. When walking around the grounds of Mission San Jose, you can’t help but wonder what life was like for the people who lived there and how in the world were they able to build such a detailed building? Mission San Jose was fully restored in 1930 and the chapel still remains a functional chapel where you can attend mass.
