Tourist Information

The social hub of the city is the River Walk, tree-shaded cobblestone paths bordering the San Antonio River in downtown. Stretching for more than two miles, River Walk brims with European-style sidewalk cafes, specialty boutiques, nightclubs, and high-rise hotels. The river's floating transportation system offers interesting ways to see the city and its attractions. Rivercenter is a three-level shopping, dining and entertainment complex. The attraction that is synonymous with San Antonio is the Alamo, the mission-fortress that was defended by American patriots in the Texas struggle for independence from Mexico. The compound contains the chapel and its famous facade, and a museum/library. NewFor additional information, visit the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau Web site at www.sanantoniocvb.com.
