Unquestionably, the most popular neighborhood and area in San Antonio. For many visitors, this section of the city is the reason to make the trip in the first place. Annually tourists flock here in the tens of thousands to catch a glimpse of the Alamo before heading to the River Walk for a night of authentic old-world charm and lively musical offerings. The riverbanks are lined with four-star hotels, acclaimed culinary temptations and enough Southwestern appeal to please both young and old. Mariachis and other performers stroll the river’s edge as patrons soak up all of the traditions and flavors that the area has to offer. Modern and historic at the same time, there is simply no other spot like it.
