San Antonio River
#3 of 53 Nature & Parks in San Antonio
Passed waterfalls, rock paths over the river, parks, historic bridges, local art, La Villarita - a historic Mexican Mission area, and wandered through streets of unique and beautiful mansions.
The central loop is loaded with restaurants and honky tonk places but the trails north and south are great for hiking and biking to places like the missions, King William district, and Brackenridge park.
