Couldn't go too far from home --- went to San Antonio.<P>Besides touring the sites, visiting the Riverwalk, and hitting the amusement parks, we also went to a 4-star restaurant that is/was? located in their medical area -- and it was very reasonably priced too!<P>Another place that we've been to, also in TX, is Fredericksburg.<P>It's an old German town and they've turned a lot of the old buildings into B&Bs and all sorts of shops. There's a microbrewery and a winery, plus candle-making, antiques, wonderful German food, a maritime museum.... And if you are there at the right time of year there's craft shows and dances.<P>~Amy
