In the 1930's after a devastating flood, the City of San Antonio decided to redesign the Riverwalk. Thanks to that decision, San Antonio has a shady and friendly river walk area surrounded by old and new hotels, and restaurants. The patio cafe restaurants are in the often shady and beautifully landscaped riverwalk. We most enjoyed the quieter Riverwalk during the week. On Thusdays and weekends the Riverwalk is very lively and you can hear or attend concerts. the Western Museum had a concert and food trucks! On the weekend the locals and the college students make the Riverwalk a lively and fun place to eat. If you like art don't miss the Villas.
