A Trip from Fort Meade to San Antonio
So you’ve decided to road trip to San Antonio from Fort Meade, which is almost a 24 hour trip, so you’ve definitely got some planning to do. A road trip doesn’t have to be boring, and even if you don’t have too much wiggle room in your itinerary, there’s always time to take in an interesting sight, eat a great meal, or let loose with some night time entertainment. So before you hop in the car, go over this list and add some of the stops to your list to feel invigorated before heading back out onto the open road. When you arrive in San Antonio, you’ll want to visit downtown, the Riverwalk, some Hill Country wineries and the other sites. I would recommend you rent a limo or hummer limo in San Antonio and ride around in style. You have come this far and it is well worth the money, especially if you can get some friends together for a great time.
