San Antonio’s main thoroughfare isn’t a road—it’s the River Walk. In 1929, local architect Robert H. Hugman presented his innovative vision for the city: a series of shops and restaurants lining the San Antonio River, one story below street level, as it courses through a five-mile section downtown. Today, the meandering San Antonio River Walk is a charming, pedestrian-friendly way to explore the city’s main attractions, including the San Antonio Museum of Art, Tex-Mex restaurants, the open-air Arneson River Theatre, and the 300-year-old Spanish mission known as the Alamo. The famous 1836 battle between Mexican troops and Texan settlers is remembered by thousands of visitors who tour the battlegrounds and peruse museum exhibits free of charge. If you’re tired of the city bustle, decamp for nearby Texas Hill Country, where you can go tubing on a river in New Braunfels or explore quaint Fredericksburg, known for its German heritage.
