San Antonio River Walk (Paseo del Rio), San Antonio

2 of 11

Why It’s Cool: This granddaddy of river walks charms
with four miles of cypress-lined cobble- and-flagstone paths along both sides
of the narrow San Antonio River. Locals and visitors cool off on the
horseshoe-shaped loop downtown, meandering past trendy shops and stopping at
hot spots like Boudro’s for a prickly-pear margarita and guacamole prepared tableside.

Don’t Miss: The Museum Reach river walk section,
which opened last year and stretches 1.7 miles north, passes the San
Antonio Museum of Art
. Landscaped with native plants and small water
cascades, the route features art installations under every bridge.
