Riverwalk San Antonio
The San Antonio River Walk is a breathtaking waterfront that features 2 1/2 miles of amazing hotels, tourist attractions, and businesses. This location alone takes in almost $800 million a year in revenue. It’s hard to believe that a place so charming today could have been the site of the Battle at the Alamo and a flash flood that claimed fifty lives and cost millions of dollars in property damage back in September of 1921.
After much debate as to how to rebuild the area, a proposal was made to turn the San Antonio waterway area into an urban park, designed to capture the ambiance of street life in Venice, Italy. The park’s main focus is in preserving its history and beauty.
The River Walk is a famous attraction that is open to the public year round and is free. It offers the best selection of restaurants including:
Biga on the Banks
Hotels that are directly located on or close to the river walk well worth staying in include the:
