Road trip

By Marie Valadez

Galveston

The first place i went to was the bishops palace i took a tour it was very interesting. Why don't i tell you about it.

The Bishops Palace also called Gresham"s castle, is a Victorian-style house. It is located on Broadway and 14th Street in the East End of the Historic District of Galveston Texas. The american institution of architects says that the home is the 100 most interesting buildings in the United States. The library of congress classified it as one of the fourteen most representative Victorian structures in the nation.

The Gresham mansion is made all of stone, and is sturdy enough to stand the great hurricane of 1900. The Greshams welcomed hundreds of survivors of the hurricane into their home.

The house was built between 1887 and 1893 by Galveston architect Nicholas J. Clayton. In 1923 the Roman Catholic Diocese of galveston purchased the house and, situated across the street from the Sacred Heart Church, it served as the residence for Bishop Christopher E. Byrne.

The Galveston Historical Foundation provides self-guided tours of the house daily. Funding from the tours go to help the preservation and restoration of the house.

Its very interesting you should check it ou when you go to Galveston

San Antonio

El mercado

After I left Galveston i went to San Antonio and head to El mercado which is market square in Spanish. Market Square is a very cultural site it is manly a Mexican traditional site. it is a outdoor three block plaza. It has lots of shops restaurants and produce stands. They say that the market is one of Americans top ten outdoor markets according to Frommers. El Mercado sell things made from hand like traditional Mexican dresses and leather belts. Market square has working artists, musicians, and dancers. The major cultural events give it a feel like you are really in mexico. There are about 80 shops at "El mercado". El Mercado has lots of foods and beverages booths when it comes to festivals.There are lots of Guadalajara lamps along where the booths. You can hear the mariachi music playing in the distance with the excitement of the dancers. I had a blast while i was there, and it felt like i was there to experience the culture. Know i have to go, wish i could stay longer if you ever pass by make sure to make a quick stop maybe grab a treat or relax and watch the show.

GUENTHER HOUSE

After leaving El Mercado i went to the museum Guenther House. It is a really nice place its alot like antiques and things from like around world war two. It is a place where you can grab things to eat because there are restaurants around. The place is a really elegant place. I liked being there and think it was nice. I wasn't there for a long time i was there just to look around.

natural bridge caverns

The caverns are so much fun. You do lots of things you can do thee like go mining that was fun i found rocks, fossils and a gem or two. Its so much fun but a little chilly it was about 70f in there. Will i was there i saw a couple of bats in the caverns. The caverns were made in 1963 and from there they have added trails and other things so people could come and enjoy the wonders of this place i think it was very interesting. You should really go there are lots of activities.
