This guide is a slimmed down version "Viva San Antonio," which is offered at $100. If you'd like the full guide to San Antonio, visit my profile to select "Viva San Antonio." This guide offers fewer recommendations per section and does not offer favorite coffee shops.

I like to think of San Antonio as Austin’s cool sibling, who isn’t showy but who is artistic and a bit hipster. San Antonio is like an onion, the more you experience it, the more you'll find. San Antonio is not in your face; some of the best spots are hidden in buildings you would never expect and knowing where to find them is the key.

This guide will share with you many of the spots that locals love and frequent. If you're looking for River Walk suggestions and The Alamo tour tips, then this is not your guide. If you want to know how to experience the true San Antonio, the San Antonio that locals experience, then this is your go-to guide.
