4-Day Texas Hill Country Road Trip (Day 4 of 4, Bandera to San Antonio) You can avoid downtown parking fees by bunking in a residential neighborhood, such as Monte Vista. Spend the night in the area's five-room 1908 Ayres Inn (from $125 a night) and wake up to a free breakfast. 1908 Ayres Inn | San Antonio Bed and Breakfast
If South Congress is the best place for out-of-towners to visit, can you imagine what it's like living there every day? Short commute to downtown, restaurants/shops/bars within an arm's reach and the First Thursday street festival every month. It does get crowded on the weekends, but the hustle and bustle is good for you. Right off SoCo is Travis Heights which also has great houses and nice parks.
