Some of San Antonio’s best-known attractions are located here, including the historic Alamo and the beautiful Riverwalk, which wends past restaurants, shops, hotels and museums. Whether strolling along the river or riding a riverboat, Riverwalk is one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Texas. Rivercenter Mall is the main shopping enclave here, with more than a hundred shops and three movie theaters.

The Majestic Empire Theater host national touring music acts, musical theater and dance companies throughout the year. The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and the 750-foot-tall scenic viewing tower, Tower of the Americas, are also a part of downtown’s cultural scene.
