San Antonio captures the spirit of Texas. The seventh largest city in the United States, the city has retained its sense of history and tradition, while carefully blending in cosmopolitan progress. The city has always been a crossroads and a meeting place. The sounds and flavors of Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans and the Deep South mingle and merge. Over twenty-eight million visitors a year delight in the discovery of San Antonio's charms.
River Walk Doubles in Size
The River Walk’s new "Museum Reach" which stretches north along the San Antonio River and connects the existing River Walk to the San Antonio Museum of Art and the 125-year-old Pearl Brewery, a vibrant urban village. New public art installations, by local, national and international artists, line the banks. A lock and dam system, the only one in Texas, overcomes a 9-ft. rise in elevation. Take a river cruise and navigate right through the lock and dam. To learn more about the Museum Reach Project, click here.
