About
Located on the South bank of the San Antonio River, La Villita was one of San Antonio’s first neighborhoods and served in several iconic, historic Texas moments. In 1939, Mayor Maury Maverick dedicated the Mission of La Villita to preserving Arts and Culture, fostering an environment where local Artisans can produce works and share in cultural community engagement and events. A quaint and peaceful City park, La Villita is also listed on the National Registry of Historic Districts. Over 25 galleries, boutiques, and restaurants in the nature-filled block offer unique art, oil paintings, sculptures, watercolors, metalwork, rock art, textiles, copper wares, jewelry, stained glass, regional folk-art, and award-winning culinary provisions. Hours of Operation: Mon-Sat. 10AM - 6PM Sun. 11AM - 4PM

Side stop off the RiverWalk
Sep 2021
Quaint village off the beaten path with some unique shops and a restaurant. Some work being done on the streets while we were there. Worth spending some time.

A Gem of a Shop!
Sep 2021 • Friends
What a gem along the River Walk! Such a cute store, with great gifts for children amd adults? We purchased our goodies from a variety of items, including toys, greeting cards from a laugh-out-loud genre, and Mexican artistry. A great little shop to put on your list of stops along the river. Located in La Valitta.

Bullying employees is not cultural
Jul 2021
In a sweet little shop, with lots of colorful items, my daughter and I witnessed one shop owner berating an employee right in front of us. She was ugly when she spoke to that worker. We left immediately.

Quaint, but expensive
Jun 2021 • Family
This was very close to a hotel on the Riverwalk and is a nice thing to put on your list if you enjoy artsy, handmade, unique things. My only issues are that’s the stores don’t open until 11 AM, And there aren’t that many stores, and of the stores you can look through a lot of them are expensive. I did find a pair of earrings that were cute and affordable and then I put them on and the glue that was holding the pieces together came undone and broke immediately.

Aside from that it is quiet, cute, And a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the Riverwalk

Light browsing
May 2021 • Couples
A short walk from the Riverwalk. We came to do some light shopping. Most of the shops were open (I think some have closed due to covid). It was mostly browsing for us, and quite a few of the shops were out of my price range for clothing items, etc. It was fun to browse around. The Bird & Pear was our favorite store. Many shops feature local artists and there are a few art shops. It's a 1 hour visit for most people I'd say.

Expected something different
Apr 2021
I really love places with unique shops and restaurants. But this was disappointing. Some things were closed and the whole village was empty. I expected such a cultural place to be lively. I guess San Antonio tourist aren’t ready for that.

Very quiet
Mar 2021 • Family
Walked through here a couple time during the week and not much was open, perhaps this is related to covid. It’s a cute little “village”. Supposed to be shops and eateries however, as said, nothing open. Until this area is back to normal, I’d recommend skipping.

CLOSED (mostly)
Mar 2021 • Couples
wow everything but about 3 shops closed. only 1 closed store had current hours posted and they are only open 16 hours the entire week. the rest still had signs with hours 10am - 6pm for example but no one home and lights out. just goes to show that if San Antonio hotels and restaurants are open, don't assume the shops are. this city still basically shut down..

Nice Archetectural Appearance to this Village
Feb 2021
This is a well done shopping and restaurant area. There is access to it from the Riverwalk. We walked through the area and visited some of the shops. We expected it to be more cultural but there was very little of that available. There are some nice restaurants we would like to visit in the future. Overall we were a little disappointed with our stop here. Not sure it was worth the $8 to park to go here.
