El Mirador
This storied Southtown fixture closed permanently in 2018 after more than 50 years serving a blend of Tex-Mex staples and upscale takes on Mexican cuisine. Blue Star artists, city hall politicians and longtime regulars made up its diverse and loyal clientele. The restaurant's closure certainly seemed to mark the end of an era for its south-of-downtown neighborhood.

Olmos Basin Greenway
sanantonio.gov
The Olmos Basin Greenway Trail runs between Jones-Maltsberger Road and Devine Road and is about a mile or so long. Because of the mature trees in Olmos Basin Park, the greenway trails are almost entirely shaded, offering relief from the hot Texas sun on sweltering days. If you decide to go during the summer, or let’s be real, any other season in Texas, the shade doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be cool. Luckily, it runs along Olmos Creek.
