Win a Trip for Two to San Antonio, Texas

It's one thing to read about visiting San Antonio, Texas, but thanks to VisitSanAntonio.com, a lucky reader of Walking Off the Big Apple will win a getaway for two to San Antonio! Now you, too, will have a chance to remember the Alamo, explore the River Walk, and enjoy this fast growing metropolis.

The winner will receive the following great prize package:

• Hotel: Emily Morgan - 1 two night voucher
• Restaurants: La Gloria Ice House, Guenther House for four
• Airfare: $1000 Visa Gift Card
• The winner will also receive passes to: SeaWorld, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Witte Museum, Buckhorn Museum, Alamo Audio Tour, Alamo at the IMAX, and City Sightseeing bus.

Fun! That should cover you - lodging, food, and excellent sightseeing. That Visa gift card should be able to handle transportation to the Alamo City. Sweet.

Picture yourself here. On the left, the Emily Morgan Hotel. On the right, the Alamo.


The Contest:

Answer this question: What three things would you most like to see in San Antonio? Answer below in the comments form to this post with "In San Antonio I would like to see_______, ______, and ______. Fill in these blank spaces with three things that Walking off the Big Apple mentioned in her three posts on San Antonio. Here's an example: "In San Antonio I would like to see the Alamo, Guenther House, and the River Walk."

Rules: Your entry to this competition needs to be submitted as a comment below this post. Begin your comment with "In San Antonio I would like to see..." and be sure to fill in 3 things mentioned on this site, as directed above. Only one entry per person is allowed. It's totally your personal choice of what three things to pick, but there would be a disqualification if you were to list only two things (you need three things!) or if you included a place not at all in San Antonio, like the Eiffel Tower, for example.

Deadline for entry is Friday, March 18, 2011 at 12 noon ET.

I have turned on comment moderation on this blog so as to avoid spam and clueless people. At the end of the contest, I’ll pick one random but legitimate entry from those comments submitted below to win the prize. I will use a randomizer site to do this. When I select the lucky person, I will also need to verify your full name and contact information, so be sure that the name you provide with your comment eventually leads to some place where I can contact you.

Surely, you have now found three things to see in San Antonio after reading these previous posts:

In San Antonio: Stories of Remembrance and Reclamation. Part I. Remembering the Alamo.

25 Great Things to Do in San Antonio

Images by Walking Off the Big Apple from March 3-6, 2011. During my stay, I was the guest of Visit San Antonio, and I thank them for their hospitality and for the chance to share the city with readers of Walking Off the Big Apple. Observations and opinions expressed in this series are my own. I am a fifth-generation Texan, on my mother's side, but my ancestors in East Texas stayed far away from the Alamo. I now live on the island of Manhattan.

Good luck, all y'all.

The contest is now closed. Thanks to all who entered. The winner has been notified.
