THIS IS A SUGGESTED ITINERARY ONLY**
Day 1: Pearl
Hold hands on a guided GO RIO San Antonio cruise along the river, and cheer when a bride and groom say “I do” on Marriage Island, and intimate (yet highly public) island little more than an arm’s length from your riverboat. Ascend the steps from the River Walk into Bella on the Rover’s candlelit dining room. With natural limestone rock walls, this secluded gem feels like an Italian grotto. At Hotel Havana’s Ocho, sip Cuban-inspired craft cocktails in the stunning glass atrium overlooking the water. Before you head back to your room at Hotel Emma, San Antonio’s award-winning boutique hotel housed in the Pearl Brewery, share a dessert at Southerleigh or one last glass of wine at High Street Wine Company. Maybe all that sugar will move you to dance to the music of a live band downtown at JAZZ, TX, a live-music hotspot.
Day 2: Spas, Sports, and shopping at La Cantera.
Sometimes quality time means treating yourself to a relaxing day before joining your partner for an evening together. Out where the highways roll into the Texas Hill Country, golfers tee off at La Cantera Resort and Spa’s Palmer Golf Course. At La Cantera Resort’s new Loma de Vida Spa, take in magnificent views from the outdoor rainfall shower of your private sky loft. The open-air Shops at La Cantera features upscales stores and a variety of stylish dining options including Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar, where you and your love-bird can swing from hanging nest chairs while sampling a selection of its expansive craft-cocktail program. Enjoy a nightcap at Sire Bar and count the shooting stars over the hills.
Day 3: Hill Country Wine Tour
The nine-million-acre Texas Hill Country wine region is a tour for the eyes and palate. Visit your favorite local winery, or, depending on the season, hop on a wine trail, such as the springtime Wine and Wildflower Trail, and enjoy special offerings and tours. Let service providers like Cottonwood Wine Tours of San Antonio and Fredericksburg Limo & Wine Tours take care of the driving so you can relax in a private car or chartered bus. Many if the Hill Country’s more than fifty wineries are just a few turns away from charming towns like Fredericksburg and Comfort, which offer shopping, restaurants, and lively street festivals. Make sure your ride gets you back to town in time for world-class performance at the Tobin Center for Performing Arts, or the Majestic Theatre, Empire Theatre, or Aztec Theatre.
