San Antonio gets all dressed up, merry and bright for the holiday season. The San Antonio Riverwalk is the most beautiful sight to see and people from around the world travel to come and catch a glimpse of the wonder that sparkles on the river. San Antonio thrives off of the Christmas spirit and shines most beautifully this time of year.
As a little girl I couldn’t wait for the Riverwalk to be lit up for the holidays so my family and I could walk along the river, ride the barges and visit the famous Alamo Plaza HEB Christmas Tree. Now that I have a family of my own my daughter’s favorite place to visit is Downtown San Antonio. This was her first Christmas seeing the beautiful lights and enjoying a family tradition where we meet at the Alamo, take pictures at the tree and then head down the Riverwalk for dinner and Christmas light sightseeing. My favorite sights were looking at the trees and their sparkling lights along the Riverwalk, the Tower of the Americas at the Hemisfair Park with its red and green lights, the HEB Christmas tree and horse carriages.
The Riverwalk is a special place during the holiday season. Stop by the Alamo Plaza Christmas tree and watch the people. You can see the happiness, the Christmas spirit, the family unitiy, the history of our city, the culture of our community and you can feel the love our city was built on. Experience the San Antonio Riverwalk at its best, during Christmas!
I recommend starting your own tradition or traveling to see the San Antonio Riverwalk Christmas lights with your family and friends. Keep it simple and savor the moment. Meet at the Alamo Plaza, take pictures at the HEB Christmas tree, ride the horse and carriage, dine on the Riverwalk and walk around downtown admiring the beautiful lights. Give the gift of San Antonio Riverwalk Christmas lights to you loved ones this year and every year!
