When visiting San Antonio, strolling the River Walk is a must! It's approximately 1.5 miles long and runs along the San Antonio River with oodles of quaint cafes and retail shops just feet away. I snapped this pic with my iPhone my first evening in town.
Can you say 'charming'?! Arched pedestrian bridges connect the two banks and various tourist attractions. It's quite enjoyable -- and very active in the evenings with hundreds of people strolling, the sound of live music wafting from cantinas, and diners enjoying a drink or meal at a cafe while watching the boats putter by. We took a relaxing riverboat tour under the stars with the guide telling us about the history of San Antonio -- fun! I had visited San Antonio 15 years ago when I was a TV reporter and was dispatched to Texas to cover a federal trial -- and the only thing I had a chance to see outside the courtroom was the River Walk briefly one night after a 11 hour work day. I hoped it was going to be as nice as I remembered and it was. Definitely worth checking out!
