Here is part of downtown Houston, Texas. This photo was taken from Interstate 10.
Across the highway from downtown Houston was a large city park with a nice paved loop trail. Dogs are allowed on leash and we saw many there enjoying the outdoors. It was a nice place to stop and stretch our legs.
For lunch we stopped at a Whole Foods Market in Houston. This chain of natural foods markets has great delis with both hot and cold food. We took our food to go and sat at one of their outdoor tables with Toby.
Later that day we arrived into San Antonio. This photo shows a distant view of downtown from the highway.
We stopped for several nights at the dog-friendly  Holiday Inn off Durango Blvd. It was within about a 10 to 15 minute walk to downtown San Antonio and the Riverwalk. There was another dog-friendly Holiday Inn on the Riverwalk but the only available hotel parking was underground. Since we had an SUV with a cargo box on the top, our car would have been too tall for the parking garage. Therefore, we stopped at the Holiday Inn on Durango. It was a nice hotel and at a great location. The only caveat was that there were some red fire ants in the grass around the area which we found out the hard way! After we discovered them, it was quick trips to the bathroom for Toby, dodging any ant trails.
Also within walking distance from our hotel was the Market Square - El Mercado. It is an outdoor market and is the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico. Here you can find pinatas, pottery, clothing and more. You also might be able to listen to some live music throughout the market. Leashed dogs are welcome to accompany you at the outdoor sections.
One of our nights in San Antonio, we walked by the Alamo which is near the Riverwalk. While dogs are not allowed inside, you can have a nice photo opportunity with your dog on the sidewalk in front of the Alamo. The Alamo building shown here was smaller in real life that I thought it would be.

During the day, all of us went for a walk along the Riverwalk. Dogs were allowed on leash and we saw a few other dogs there. Pets are not allowed on the river boat rides but are allowed at many of the outdoor restaurants that line the river.
Toby and I are shown here on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Click here to continue reading Part 8.
