You can't get more Texas than Pearl beer. This brewery is a beautiful landmark that stands out when driving on the highways around downtown. The limestone structure is now used for events, excercise classes, a culinary institute and more. You can...more

They have done an excellent job developing this site into a place of shops, restaurants and outdoor space. The vibe is cool and the shops have interesting items. We didn’t eat, but had a drink inside the bottling department food bar which was enjoyable.

Nice place to meet up with friends and enjoy an afternoon meal in the outside dining area. It appeared to be dog friendly. Shops were very expensive and a bit on the bohemian side with clothing style. We were expecting more variety in the shops....More

First off, beautiful renovation area. Had no idea some of those were apartments. One place was closed for a private event, food was costly, and clothing is overpriced. If you’re not a hipster, no reason to go.

Lots of shops and restaurants in this area. This is a nice area for walking around and you can get here by car (plenty of parking) or taking one of the River Walk Boats. I would definitely stop by if you have the time.

No brewery tours here . Just lots of expensive stores and restaurants. Not that big of place . Spent maybe an hour there . You can catch a boat there on the river to return to the Riverwalk . Last one leaves 4pm.

I am not sure. If you call the pearl brewery they should be able to tell you. If it is open a must to do.

Well, I would say, Traveler's Rv is right on the River Walk. Our RV was parked in RiverWalk RV Park. There is not parking for RV's by the Alamo.

We spent our 25th anniversay in San Antonio. It was a fabulous and very romantic experience. Thanks so much to Trip Advisor for advice on hotels and restaurants. We stayed at the Riverwalk Drury Inns & Suites and it was incredible. We enjoyed the view from our balcony and the free breakfast every morning and free drinks at 5:30 pm. We did not eat at the kickback buffet but lots of people did. The burger at Zinc was AMAZING & the food and service at Biga on the Banks was outstanding. We walked...More

Parking an RV near Riverwalk (3 Replies)
We will be stopping at San Antonio during the day and would like to walk the Riverwalk. Where can we park a truck with a large trailer? We don't mind walking a mile or so from our car. I would like to park somewhere along the northern reaches of the Riverwalk. Would there be a safe place around Pearl Brewery to park our rig while we explore the Riverwalk?

the city and a handful of downtown churches have surface parking lots..for ex. as you approach downtown from Broadway there are numerous lots...and the parrallel streets Alamo and AVE E, (the area around SA newspaper building/First Presbyterian Church)-cross streets are 3rd and 4th street. (esp. at 4th and E) area bordering the northern side of RiverCenter mall has surface lots as well, area behind the Alamo

1st time in Austin - Where to stay (17 Replies)
I read the intro info on the Forum and did a bit of research into things to do. My husband and I will be visiting Austin for the first time and combining it with a stay at San Antonio the last week of March. We are 51, very active - I teach fitness classes, my husband does triathlons. Love live music. Love trying out the local cuisine. My husband likes craft beers - I am more of a mixed drink person. Last year around this time, we visited Asheville SC had a terrific time hiking,...More

Congrats on doing your homework! Your focused questions will make it easier for the board! Austin Detours does a great job and the night time music crawl is well worth it. They hit several clubs, get your excellent seats and you can drink since they're driving! Win, win! Look at Esther's Follies and reserve tickets since they sell out. Think of Capitol Steps comedy group. Waterloo records is at 6th and Lamar, across street from Whole Foods (mothership store) and across street from...More
