Sights seen while away

San Antonio's Riverwalk only gets better each time I visit it. The older part is filled with tall trees, hotels, and cafes. A feast for all your senses. In the newer part that just opened in May there is some wonderful new art pieces and water features.

The San Antonio Art Museum saved the brewery keg bridge and it has been turned it into a foot bridge on the newest part of the Riverwalk.

A mural of the missions in San Antonio under a bridge along the Riverwalk.

The mural at the top of the convention center was a gift to the city from Mexico in honor of the worlds fair. It is amazing in its beauty. Only the blue tiles are glazed. The rest are natural stone. At sunset the mural really comes to life.

One of the many fountains under a bridge along the older section of the Riverwalk.

I love the riverwalk:) I got to go to San Antonio for a work conference, I spent all my free time just wandering the riverwalk. Looks like you had a good trip!
