San Antonio's enchiladas are so famous and tasty that we decided to roll all of our books into one. OK, not really. The "Enchilada Red" six-story building encompassing San Antonio's Central Library was designed by Ricardo Legorreta, the famous Mexican architect who won a design competition in 1991. The building, described as Mexican Modernist, is unmistakable. Head up the escalator to the second floor and look up as far as you can see to take in "Fiesta Tower," the two-story multicolor glass sculpture created by world-famous artist David Chihuly. Put your tech gadgets away and go analog downtown and read a book. 600 Soledad St., (210) 207-2500, mysapl.org
