San Antonio River Walk
Experience the true beauty of San Antonio on the quintessential Riverwalk, sometimes likened to the Venice of Texas. While you can reach this location by car and find convenient parking downtown, you’ll quickly want to skip all the traffic and stroll past the shops, restaurants, sparkling river and beautiful garden scenes and of nature. This type of outing offers something for everyone and most importantly, it’s completely free. The only money you’ll spend if you stop at any of the shops are the restaurants along the way.
Other entertainment options at the San Antonio River Walk include a boat ride or reservations for a luxury dinner cruise. Consider one of them for a night out with that special someone. If your date goes well, you can even come back later to get married on Marriage Island. Throughout the year, special events take place regularly. Late summer involves kayaking trips. Labor Day or a craft show in the fall gives you a taste of local craft options. Come see jazz musicians play or come back during the holiday season to enjoy the beautiful lights, boat songs and holiday parade.
However, you don’t have to have a special occasion to visit the San Antonio River Walk. All you need to ask yourself is what kind of entertainment do you enjoy the most? Do you like shopping? Browse the vendors in the historic Market Square, visit the Pearl Plaza or explore the Merchants Village. Are you hungry? Restaurants and eateries range from family dining at the Republic of Texas restaurant, Dave and Busters’ amusement park, to two more stylish options like Culinaria and Landry’s Seafood. Nightlife, theme parks and hotels offer incredible options.
