Definitely the 1st thing you should do is take the river tour cruise which is a 45 min narrated cruise with lots of good info + it will give you your bearings on the Riverwalk. www.rioSanAntonio.com

Visit the Alamo www.thealamo.org but if you really don't know the importance of it you may want to go & see the movie "Price of Freedom" @ the IMAX Theater www.imax-sa.com @ Rivercenter Mall www.shoprivercenter.com you can also do some shopping.

Also visit San Fernando where some of the hero's from the Alamo are entomb here. www.sfcathedral.org

Guenther House www.guentherhouse.com grab breakfast or lunch here as well.

Market Square www.marketsquaresa.com grab a bite @ Mi Tierra www.mitierracafe.com & La Margarita www.lamargarita.com

Tower of the Americas www.toweroftheamericas.com

Institute of Texan Cultures www.texancultures.com

What are your interest so we can give better suggestions. ????

There is a lot to see & do in the downtown area that is walkable or you can use the streetcar/trolley to get around.
