    The ranches around Bandera might be worth a look.

    San Marcos is a good place to start. Go up to the tower at Wonder Cave. You will get a panoramic view of the area. You can see the rolling hills and the plateau from there. Very nice view.

    Try San Antonio, starting at the Riverwalk, with its awesome restaurants, shops, boat tours, etc, then head over to the Tower of the Americas nearby, 600 feet high with a restaurant at the top (or just take the elevator up for picture-taking), and be sure to see the Alamo nearby as well. When you're bored with that, go to the small community of New Braunfels north of the city a bit (45 minutes?) and see what an old German community in Texas is like, tons of shops, German food as well as the usual types, and lots of shade, which you'll appreciate if you go in the summer. If you want ocean, it's only about four hours from the beach at Padre Island... As a former San Antonio resident, these are the places I enjoyed most on a visit back there in 2009.

    You might try the Lake Amistad area, which offers 850 miles of shoreline, fishing, and even scuba and snorkeling. It's about 160 miles west of San Antonio, so within range of a longish day trip. The Rio Grande flows out of the lake on its way southeast along the U.S.-Mexico line. Nearby, there's a couple of border crossings to Ciudad Acuna without perhaps some of the grittier stuff in Nuevo Laredo or Piedras Negras. More info on Amistad at: http://bit.ly/fKQ2II
