Recently I visited the San Antonio River walk, referred to as the Venice of the US by the locals, is full of shopping, food, and sites to see. You can explore the riverwalk on foot or if you like boats you can get on the guided river boat tour, or boat taxi which makes 39 stops along the riverwalk..
The Riverwalk is more than 15 miles long. The more tourist portion is downtown San Antonio and if you want to stay on the riverwalk there are plenty of places to stay. And of course no visit to San Antonio wouldn’t be complete without visiting The Alamo, which it’s original intent was to be a mission, but instead turned into being a site of one of the most bloody battles in San Antonio history and where Davy Crocket lost his life in this famous battle.
