I don't know if the homelessness issue in the downtown area is a new thing or it's been going on for a while but no one mentioned the homelessness problem nor the boarded up shops with no end in sight. There were a few streets where all the tourists gather such as Commerce, Houston, Saint Mary's, Alamo Street but there were also many more streets where there were 0 shops open and the buildings seemed abandoned and run down.
We got to San Antonio on Saturday afternoon after a drive highlighted by us sitting in traffic for a an extra hour due to road closures. It was pretty humid on Saturday but very tolerable and despite the rain on Sunday and Monday mornings the weather stayed pleasant.
Here are a few photos from our visit. Let me know how your San Antonio experiences have been.
