San Antonio River Walk
Any visit to San Antonio could very well begin at the legendary River Walk in downtown San Antonio. This scenic and dynamic pedestrian walkway provides easy access to many of the city’s hottest attractions, including locally owned shops, world-class hotels, restaurants serving delicious food, and fascinating museums. You can also take a leisurely and picturesque boat tour on the San Antonio River, or even hop on a water taxi to reach your destination.
A College Town and Youthful Atmosphere on the River
San Marcos is also known for its college Texas State University, a beautiful campus next to the San Marcos River. I was fortunate to visit during the Texas Wild Rice Festival, an eco-celebration intended to draw attention to the need to preserve the plant known as Texas Wild Rice, which grows in the San Marcos River. Hundreds of university students as well as visitors strolled among the vendor booths, listened to live music and were even treated to a unicycle football match. Everybody enjoyed the gorgeous weather. Some decided to sunbathe; others simply preferred to swim and cool off by floating down the river on inner tubes. That sounds like a plan, right?
A Perfect Place for Water Sports
With a water temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year and beautiful, clear, sparkling waters, the San Marcos River deserves a separate mention. College students aren’t the only ones enjoying the San Marcos River. It’s a favourite for both residents and visitors. Some sections offer starting points for tube excursions along the river. In addition to floating in a tube, you can stand up paddleboard, kayak and even snorkel. The area is also great for picnics and family gatherings.
Because of its excellent location, outlets, shops, restaurants and beautiful river, San Marcos, Texas is an excellent choice for a stop on your Texas holiday.
