Down by the River
San Antonio’s famed River Walk draws tourists who enjoy gallivanting beside its decorated boats, bars, shops, galleries and restaurants. But the Museum Reach segment, which rolls along the river for 1.3 miles north of downtown, from Lexington Avenue to Josephine Street, links a bevy of other sights—and allows folks to reach them on foot. Stroll from the San Antonio Museum of Art, for example, to the refurbished Pearl Brewery, which brims with stores, cafes, and galleries. Along the way, public art and landscaping beautify this urban passage, while further south, nature aficionados can hike through a woodland ecosystem, known as the Mission Reach. Fifteen miles of trails wind through eight miles along the river, with side trails leading to the city’s four historic missions including Mission Concepción, the oldest stone church in America.
