The San Antonio River Walk is one of the most delightful areas of Texas. It evokes Europe, which is known for fantastic public spaces. As you walk the river, you will notice waterfalls and reflective pools, inviting side paths and relaxing patios. Many shops, galleries and cafes line the bank of the south end of the river. There you will also find a variety of restaurants, most of which offer cooling mists in the hotter months.
The north section of the River Walk, lined with many public art installations, provides more of a retreat from urban San Antonio. This new “Museum Reach” has recently opened, and connects the existing River Walk with the San Antonio Museum of Art and the 125 year old Pearl Brewery. The Museum did a fantastic job converting the old brick brewery in to galleries; indeed, the architecture of the museum is as worthy of admiration as the museum exhibits. Some of the best views of the city are found both from inside the museum and from the new, expansive pavilion by the river.
