One of the first places mentioned on 'must-see' lists for San Antonio, the famed River Walk snakes its way through the entire city, though the famous part is located downtown. The heart of the River Walk is full of restaurants, bars and retailers, the biggest of which is the Rivercenter Mall, which house several high-end shops and an IMAX movie theater.
Also known as the Paseo Del Rio, the walk has boat tours that give a great overview of the history of the city while being both entertaining and enlightening. Look for parades during Fiesta, Christmas and if the San Antonio Spurs win another NBA Championship.
