Do You Really Know The San Antonio River Walk?

Sure, you may be familiar with the iconic downtown portion, but did you know that vastly different experiences await you at the Museum and Mission Reaches as well? Get to know all 15 miles of the San Antonio River Walk and plan for unforgettable experiences at each stop along the way.


The Alamo's Historical Legacy

San Antonio's history is filled with epic tales and heroic battles. Not only can you explore The Alamo, where bravery and courage were put to the test, but you can also pay a visit to the Alamo exhibit at the recently-opened Ralston Collections Center. 

Make the most of your time at this legendary site and book a guided tour. Entry to the Alamo is free, but timed-entry reservations are required. 

Arts & Culture In Unexpected Places

Art pieces overflow throughout the walls of The McNay and spill onto the museum's 25-acre campus. The San Antonio Museum of Art beckons you to explore art pieces from all over the world - and then enjoy dining with a view overlooking the River Walk at the museum's onsite Italian restaurant, Tre Trattoria. Speaking of museums along the River Walk, find Western Art and historical artifacts, like Pancho Villa's saddle, at Briscoe Western Art Museum.

If you prefer to take in art via live performances,  catch live bands, comedians, theatrical plays, and concerts, at one of many theaters throughout San Antonio. Catch Hasan Minhaj at the Majestic Theatre, Meshell Ndegeocello at the Carver Community Cultural Center, Juanes at the Aztec Theatre - and much more! 




Speed It Up at San Antonio Theme Parks and Attractions

Scream it out on a thrilling roller coaster. Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger at Six Flags Fiesta Texas is one of the newest additions to the park's roller coaster family.You can also try your hand at the fastest, and longest wooden roller coaster, the Texas Sting Ray at SeaWorld San Antonio. Then cool it down at Schlitterbahn Waterpark & Resort, the #1 Waterpark in the World! 

Animal adventures go beyond the ordinary at the San Antonio Zoo, the top zoo in the state where going behind the scenes with hippos and rhinos and getting up close with kangaroos and tortoises make for incredible experiences. 

Take your adventures underground, to Natural Bridge Caverns, Texas' most actively explored cavern, for hidden caves, insightful tours, and even above-ground adventures.
