From NO to Carlsbad. Stay in San Antonio or Forth Worth?

Hi!

I'm planning a roadtrip with my two teens this summer.

We're gonna drive from Miami to LA.

Now I have this dilemma:

We are leaving NO a Thursday morning, the original plan was to drive to San Antonio, stay there Friday and drive to Carlsbad on Saturday.

But, I have been reading about San Antonio, and frankly, as I read it, it's the Riverwalk and Alamos 'to do' in SA.

Therefor I am now wondering to take the 45 or 49 up to Forth Worth instead. Arrive late Thursday, stay there Friday and off on Saturday. I've read somewhere that there is a rodeo on Fridays? I think that would be more of kick for both my teens and me.

What do you think?

Regards

Hi Tejas! Nice nick :)

Thanks for answering.

Unfortunately I don't have a day to spare.

If I stay in Texas until Sunday, I can't reach South Rim Tuesday (Hotel booked).

Tejasrodeo was exactly was I was looking for, but sadly no arrangement on Fridays.

What about this: http://www.holsteinrodeo.com/index.php

See my response on your "Ranch experience/overnight horeback ride in July?" post. But the short version - There is a Friday night rodeo in Fort Worth.
