The vibrant heart of San Antonio, the River Walk is beloved by locals and visitors alike. This 2.5-mile network of cypress-shaded pedestrian pathways winds through downtown along the banks of the city's namesake river, one story below street level. Begun as a flood control project in the 1920s, the walk is now lined with hundreds of shops, lively restaurants, condos and grand hotels, accented by public artwork and street theater. Be sure to take the river cruise for a quick dip into local history. Expect large crowds, especially when the Spurs are in town. Casa Rio at East Commerce is popular for its quality Mexican food, complete with wandering mariachis and ducks cruising the riverside tables for handouts. Caveats: some walkways can be difficult for kids, seniors and the physically challenged, and if you visit in January, you may find the River Walk drained and down for maintenance.
