Many cities feature an Art Walk during the first Friday of every month.  McAllen, Texas has their's today.  But recently I did a little Art walk of sorts in San Antonio at the famous La Villita in San Antonio.

La Villita has a variety of shops and galleries.  I founds a lot of goodies I wish I could have lugged home.
 Another bonus is enjoying all the lovely old buildings and architecture.  You might not know this while you are shopping but you are actually partaking in a walking tour of historical buildings.  They may look like sweet shops now but if you click here, you'll find out more about their history and design.  La Villita Church has been here since the late 1800s and is now a non-denominational church.  It is a lovely place to have a wedding or other religious service.   You can make your reervation here.  Hope you enjoyed this mini tour and encourage you to find the gems in your town this weekend?
