Right in the heart of San Antonio you’ll find the San Antonio River Walk, a beautiful tree lined river park - but it’s so much more than your average park. Stroll along the calm river as it winds through the city center, shaded from the Texas sun by lush cypress trees. Dozens of restaurants, exciting bars and diverse shops flank both sides of the river, giving you plenty of reasons to slow down and take it all in. Take a river boat for another angle, and pass under large stone bridges by the banks lined with colorful umbrellas as you sight see at the leisure that only a smooth boat ride can afford.
The River Walk is an endless hub of activity in the city, hosting dozens of parades, festivals and events year-round. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a more family friendly attraction around. Splashtown San Antonio will help the family beat the heat, and world class attractions like Seaworld San Antonio will keep the ‘ooh’s’ and ‘aah’s’ flowing. History buffs will be thrilled by the five historic Spanish colonial Missions, and of course, the legendary Alamo. History fans and art lovers can come together at the La Villita Historic Arts Village, boasting dozens of shops and galleries featuring handcrafted folk art and more.
