"The River Walk has Great Food, Shopping and Nightlife"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 06-Nov-2015
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

This is a great diverse city with so much to do. The River Walk has great food, shopping and nightlife. Hotels close by within walking distance. Madame Tusots Wax Museum and the Guinness Book Museum were great to visit. The locals there are friendly and helpful (I asked directions several times). The Alamo was not too far from the River Walk and was interesting to see. The weather is great most of the time so laying by the pool is always a great option. This is a great city worth seeing and exploring. Great for families and couples, anyone in general.

"It is certainly well worth the trip!"
Score 5.0 / 5

Nothing says good southern hospitality than San Antonio, TX! Everything is truly bigger in Texas and that especially includes all the great attractions this populated, lively city has to offer. Be sure to visit the famous Alamo Mission and get there early in the day as it tends to get crowded by the afternoon hours. Also for history buffs, check out the beautiful Majestic Theatre which houses many music acts and Broadway shows. Make sure to purchase tickets well in advance and experience an intimate entertainment setting. Other fun attractions to explore nearby are SeaWorld, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and the San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium. Of course a trip to this great city isn't complete without visiting the Downtown Riverwalk, lined with delicious restaurants, shops and hotels for any type of budget. If you're new to the area, take the riverboat tour and explore all the fun and excitement that the Riverwalk has to offer for all ages. It is certainly well worth the trip! Great Downtown hotels right by the water with excellent customer reviews include the Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk which is very family friendly, offering breakfast and free soda and popcorn daily in the lobby. The Embassy Suites San Antonio Riverwalk also has wonderful amenities like a full cooked to order breakfast and a nightly cocktail reception. During the months of March and April are the best times to visit due to the weather and getting better rates on hotel accommodations. Book today and have fun!

"Fun vacation spot"
Score 4.0 / 5

Our youth group thoroughly enjoyed Seaworld! We visited on a one-day trip. Next time, we will have to take at least 2 days to see everything. We also visited the Alamo, but the lines were so long to get in so we just took a picture in front of it. The Riverwalk was also nice, but the highlight of the trip was our trip to Sea World. It lived up to our expectations.

What a pleasant surprise. The downtown action, the helpful hosts of tourism companies and attractions were great. The Riverwalk was such a delight. There were people all weekend long just having a great time. The perfect place to sightsee historical buildings, cathedrals, the Riverwalk and great food. Love the live entertainment in the Mexican market, people dancing. The concert at the Aztec Theatre (the reason we came there) was everything we hoped. I bow to all of you. What a great city!!
