River Walk

River Walk

  • San Antonio, 78205

The River Walk is a must-see for any traveler to San Antonio. The River Walk was conceived in 1929. Downtown had serious flood problems, and Robert Hugman suggested that the city turn the San Antonio River into an asset rather than a hindrance. Hugman's brainchild has since become the essence of the city. Stairways down to the River Walk can be found on street level throughout downtown. Walk down anywhere you like, and wander and explore the great shops, galleries, restaurants and sights. To get the full story on the history of the River Walk, take the Rio San Antonio river barge cruise for a 45-minute narrated tour. It is well worth the price. read more about River Walk

If you only have time to visit one of the San Antonio Missions, the "Queen of the Missions" is the one to visit. It is the largest of the five Missions and the most fully-restored. The Mission was a church-focused community, where Spanish Missionaries and their Indian converts lived during the 1700s and 1800s. Free ranger-guided tours last 45-60 minutes and are available at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm. The church still functions and visitors are permitted to attend the Sunday mass. read more about Mission San Jose & Visitor Center
