The city is a bustling cultural hub and has a bevy of tourist-friendly art and historical museums, in addition to several amusement parks, and interesting dining options. The city is also home to the site of the famous ‘Battle of Alamo’, a mission that doubled up as a fort during the Texan Revolution. The city has a deep Spanish and Mexican heritage, which is especially apparent during the annual ‘Fiesta Week’ event. The city is also well-loved for its small-town, laid-back appeal and its year-round pleasant weather.

The ‘San Antonio River Walk’ is a scenic network of walkways that extend along the San Antonio River. These walkways are located one-storey below the city’s streets and are flanked by numerous bars, shops and restaurants. The European-themed river walk connects to several prominent downtown buildings, which have special entrances for ease of access. It was recently expanded to include a ‘Museum Reach’ that connects prominent cultural attractions and the ‘Mission Walk’ that lets visitors explore the UNESCO World Heritage Spanish missions. Head to the river walk for a leisurely stroll, some casual dining, or to simply watch the world go by from the stone footbridges that extend across the river. For a more intensive experience, you can hop onto ‘Rio San Antonio River Cruise’. One of San Antonio’s most memorable tourist attractions, a visit to the River Walk is definitely one of the most interesting things to do in San Antonio.
