San Antonio on a Budget

comanche.jpgHike Comanche Lookout Park.

Comanche Lookout Park is a 96-acre park with a 4+ mile hiking trail. Comanche Lookout got its name because Native Americans used the hill as a vantage point during times of war or for hunting. The Apache initially controlled the area, followed later by the Comanche Indians. There are ruins of a medieval-style stone tower, built in the 1920’s by a retired Army Colonel. If you are a hiker, you will enjoy this park. (Free)

Grab Breakfast Nola’s Brunch & Beignets.

Nola (the pet name for New Orleans) serves up authentic beignets that will take you back to the French Quarter. Dive into the messy powdered sugar and order up four delicious beignets with a steaming cup of café au lait. The beignets come plain, filled with lemon curd (my favorite) or filled with coffee and chicory cream. If that doesn’t appeal to you, try the Banana’s Foster pancakes. Nola’s is a great place to start your day and get your morning sugar rush! ($5+)
