So, does anyone have any suggestions of things we should do during our trip? Finding a super cheap hotel is next on my list of plans...lol

Oh yeah--- if you have time, definitely go see some of the missions! They are amazing!!! The Alamo is right next to the Riverwalk, and it's really neat too with some pretty gardens/ponds!
Be cautious about some of the hotels right around the Riverwalk---- they can get kind of nasty---- If there's any way you can swing staying in a hotel *on* the Riverwalk, you'll be much better off!!!

Riverwalk (a must!!!), Alamo, Riverwalk Mall, Fiesta Texas, Sea World, Guadalupe River, Mercado, San Antonio Zoo, IMAX theater, Botanical Gardens, shopping in San Marcos (amazing outlets!!!)....much more stuff to do. If it was still basketball season, you could catch a Spurs game.
If you do nothing at all, please go to the Riverwalk!

|bring your appetite- there are SO many great places to eat- we ate a place called Boudreax (its sorta fancy but reasonably priced) on the riverwalk and it was awesome|

I agree w/ Maria...try to find a hotel ON the riverwalk. 1. because it's fun! 2. because they're all pretty nice, nothing to funky to worry about.
David and I got engaged in SA - so it holds a special place in our hearts! We stayed at La Mansion del Rio - very nice...not so much "cheap" unfortunately. But check it out on Expedia...and maybe give them a call, we got a better rate by calling then online. But anyway, there a lots of hotels on the riverwalk, you should be able to find something cute. The Watermark is gorgeous by the way! Not sure about their prices though.
Also, if you're looking to splurge on dinner, Las Canarias - in the La Mansion hotel - has great food! Awesome wine list in my opinion (the only place I've found Jordan Chardonnay by the glass, ever. And it's a really good chard.)

Also, Landry's is pretty good for seafood and I really liked their bar upstairs. They have live music and it's just a cozy little bar. We had fun there.
Dick's Last Resort is just goofy fun - but good for a snack and cold drink after wandering around the riverwalk in the sun.
That's all I can think of at the moment...I'll let you know if anything else comes to mind.
