San Antonio River Walk

Parking may be a challenge, but the experience is worth it at the San Antonio River Walk.

The San Antonio River Walk is a unique, urban cultural experience. It is unlike anything I have experienced before in both scope and style.

Debra suggested we stop at the San Antonio River Walk on our way through Texas this spring. I had heard of it before, but had no idea what to expect. We took a narrated river boat cruise while we were there and the guide provided fascinating details about the history of San Antonio and the River Walk during the tour. As an added bonus, The Alamo was only a few blocks away so we walked over to see it as well.

The San Antonio River Walk is worth experiencing if you are passing through this part of Texas. Since the River Walk is in downtown San Antonio, parking is limited. There are a number of parking garages and paid parking lots, but most will not accommodate larger rigs. We left the van at a hotel outside of the city and drove our Toyota Echo towed vehicle into San Antonio which worked well.
