Well I’m slowly returning to Earth following our epic #sotysouthwestadventure. Trying to catch up on work and home is always a hard adjustment after being gone for a week and a half. We were all over the place exploring new places and visiting family and friends we haven’t seen in ages. It was so much to escape from reality and have total rest and relaxation. Here are my favorite places that we visited that we visited throughout our trip!
First Stop: San Antonio, Texas
My husbands work conference was perfectly located atop one of the sprawling hills in San Antonio, TX. I was fortunate to be able to relax and enjoy this view for two days. The La Cantera Resort was amazing, everything was there or a short shuttle ride away so there was easy access to all that San Antonio, TX has to over. I would definitely stay here again or within their hotel group Destination Hotels. The conference also offered a chance to see an authentic Texas rodeo at Tejas Rodeo.
Second Stop: Phoenix, AZ
This was just a day and half pit stop for us to pick up my brother-in-law and head on over to San Diego, which was about a 5 hour car ride from PHX. It was a cool 110 degrees so we were at the pool the full day we were there.
Third Stop/Final Stop: San Diego, CA
The part of the trip I was most looking forward too was CA. I got to hang out with my girlfriends, E got to hang with his old best friend and we got to beach it! We rolled into our place which was situated in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego. We have always stayed downtown but it was nice to be in the suburbs and we rented a duplex (Dwain was so accommodating and the place was a great value) so it made us easy to prep breakfast and sandwiches for on the run. The highlights for me were seeing our friends and reminiscing about our time living in CA. San Diego is an amazing place with so many things for do for people of all ages. The weather was incredible while we were there and I wouldn’t have changed anything about our trip except I wish we could have stayed longer!
