The Paseo del Rio is San Antonio's favorite attraction. You can shop, dine, lounge in a cafe, or simply stroll along and let the strumming mariachi soothe your spirit.

We were lucky to enjoy a 76F temperature, no humidity! It was full of tourists, outdoor seating everywhere, great weather, plenty of river boats, great lighting and decorations, small shops...make sure you go there!

We ate at one place tonight, but we’re going to bar crawl tomorrow. Too many good appetizers to pass on!! Can’t wait to go back.

I would recommend the Holiday Inn Riverwalk. It is close and has a wonderful view of the Riverwalk. Everything around the Riverwalk is pricey, but you are to expect that sort of thing! Enjoy your stay in San Antonio!
