There are Places I Remember:

San Antonio

The most romantic city in the nation has its own Riverwalk with boat tours and understreet shops and restaurants.  It is home to the Alamo-the most visited attraction in Texas.  Michael Naismith of Monkey fame attended San Antonio College where he won a music competition.  Fritos started in 1932 with a purchase of the recipe for $100.  A great Spanish influence city with many Cathedrals and Missions and a great place for a conference-or two (ask Brian and Leon).

Nominate one of your favorites or your home town by emailing us.  We’ll even put you on the show (if you want).
