Tips

Welcome to San Antonio, Texas! On this walking tour, you'll be strolling through some of San Antonio's most historic sites, see some great museums, and get to experience a lot of what makes this a unique and culturally rich city. These are some of the spots that best represent San Antonio.

Since you'll do a good amount of walking, it would be a good idea to dress comfortably. Light layers are a great way to handle San Antonio's sometimes unpredictable weather. It can be chilly in the morning, warm a good deal during the midday and cool quickly at night, so bring a cardigan or other sweater to help keep you warm when it cools. Underneath, you could wear a shell or other light-fabric top and casual, comfortable slacks, walking shorts, or a breezy skirt. Tennis shoes may be the most comfortable, but you may want to pick something a little more dressy, such as boat shoes, flats or sandals. Of course, it also depends on the time of the year. If it's winter, closed-toe shoes may be best and each layer may need to be a bit thicker.

Beautiful Downtown. Historical and easy to walk around. Much to see and do. Not a hike but beautiful trails to explore.

I would recommend this trail. As a local it took me to places I didn't know and gave me the history of the city I live in. If you actually want to look at the museums, houses, and tourist attractions on this trail, I suggest looking up when the museums close and leave a whole day open to do this trail. Also, this trail did not take us through too many geto areas

FYI not all parts of the riverwalk are easily accessible as there are some areas that will require stairs
