The River Walk along the San Antonio River is one of the city’s favorite sites. Romance, culture, and food are to be found along the winding river, along with fine hotels, shops, and cafes. Nestled 20 feet below street level, the cobblestone and flagstone paths of the walk border both sides of the river as it winds through the heart of downtown. Most of the arched bridges and entrance steps wer completed between 1939 and 1941, making the river walk a romantic destination for visitors to the city. For vacations, romantic getaways, or anniversaries we have the settings and styles to make Texas romantic vacations relaxed, comfortable and memorable.
