Urban Hiking, RIverwalk Style

Urban Hiking, RIverwalk Style

While not hiking, tourists can easily get some exercise taking in the sights of San Antonio. The famous Riverwalk is the aqueous centerpiece of one of the cooler downtowns I’ve seen. It is easy to walk from our hotel to many great restaurants, shops, and historic buildings, walking on paths besides the water, often crossing lovely stone bridges like the one above.  There’s also a little place called the Alamo to explore, along with Hotel Menger, whose ice cream is so good, President Clinton had it shipped to Washington.  Don’t worry, I got out for a real hike, so stay tuned.
