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.

Be sure to take a boat ride. The tour guides are hilarious! Best time to ride is at night. Great ride for the price.

One can simply stroll along the (rather muddy) river, eat at cafes, shop in dozens of stores, or even take a river cruise, hearing much of the city's history along the way. Restaurants and the like can be somewhat pricey in this tourist haven. However,...More
