Interact with working artists or sample local cuisine at family-owned restaurants in the largest Mexican market north of the Rio Grande.

Later we board a flat-bottom boat for a cruise on the Paseo del Rio canal, located 20 feet below street level. Gain a unique perspective of the River Walk while the boat captain, famous for storytelling, entertains us with fascinating details of San Antonio’s past.

Tonight we dine on award-winning cuisine along the charming River Walk at Biga on the Banks.

The story of the Alamo comes to life as we view Alamo: The Price of Freedom at the IMAX© Theatre. We are transported back to 1836 as the 13-day siege of the rise and fall of the Alamo is presented on the big screen.
