River Walk

You can’t talk about San Antonio without mentioning the River Walk! Take a River cruise on one of the barges to really sit back and enjoy the Christmas lights, or walk around for a stunning display. From the bridges to the barges to all of the businesses in between, the River Walk combines the culture of San Antonio with the spirit of Christmas. Pro Tip: The River Walk can get a little busy and rowdy on the weekends, so escape the crowds with a weekday walk through!
