The Tucson Night Edition made a great first impression. The large, 19-inch, black Rays wheels with red centers, vibrant blue paint scheme with black trim and eye-catching body sculpting put us on notice that this isn’t your usual tepid small crossover. When we got in and started it up I was fumbling with some controls as I got acclimated and my pretty wife asked if it was an electric.
Two of San Antonio’s claims to fame, the downtown River Walk and the Alamo, are just a couple blocks from one another. They represent the modern, cosmopolitan character of the city and the historic underpinnings of this whole south Texas region.
Our accommodation for this trip is an older hotel converted into small condos overlooking the River Walk where a canopy of huge cypress, live oak and magnolia trees shade the river.
