Hipmunk City Love: Must-Do Activities on the River Walk in San Antonio, Texas

San Antonio, Texas, is one of the prettier areas of Texas to visit, and the River Walk is no exception. This lively area is not only full of beautiful trees and flowers, but the Flamenco music and entertaining people also make it spectacular. Check out the following list of must-do activities and make the most out of your next visit to the River Walk in San Antonio.

Where to Stay

Select from several great hotels when you’re looking to stay on the River Walk. A favorite is the Mokara Hotel & Spa San Antonio. This hotel is steps from the River Walk, which makes seeing and doing everything on this list easy. Plus, guests can enjoy the views below from their elegant rooms or the rooftop pool. If these amenities are not impressive enough, head to the only four-star spa in San Antonio that is right inside the hotel. By choosing the Mokara Hotel & Spa San Antonio, you are sure to have an enjoyable stay.

Take a Boat Ride

You may think that walking the River Walk is all you need to do to have the full experience, but you are mistaken. Although you see everything when you walk the River Walk, you’ll experience more to see and learn when you take a boat tour. You’ll enjoy an impressive view that you can see only from the water. Additionally, the massive amount of information that the tour guides share during your 35-minute tour is outstanding. So don’t settle for walking; take a ride on the boats.

Visit the Alamo

You’ll discover so much history in San Antonio, with a lot of it on or around the River Walk. Although the Alamo is not technically on the River Walk, the attraction is a few steps away and worth a visit. You can choose to walk the property and read all the signs, take a self-guided audio tour, or take a guided tour where you can ask questions. The historical site is such a huge part of our country’s history; it would be a shame to be so close and not see this structure in person.

Try the Margaritas

You haven’t had a margarita until you have one in San Antonio, and the River Walk is the perfect place to try one. The margaritas here don’t come in standard form; they come in various flavors such as prickly pear or as a Dos-a-Rita (a margarita with a Dos Equis turned upside down in it.) Find a great bar to sit at and try the local version of a margarita. You won’t be sorry.

Eat Mexican Food

Nothing goes better with a margarita than Mexican food, and you will find some of the best along the River Walk. Yes, you can have Mexican food practically anywhere in the country, but the flavors in San Antonio are outstanding. For a truly authentic Mexican meal, try Casa Rio and enjoy the outdoor seating while you are there.

Although several other great activities to do and see await you on the River Walk, make sure you don’t miss the items listed here. Enjoy your visit and make the most of your River Walk exploration.
