We spent Thanksgiving weekend at the Riverwalk (Downtown San Antonio) to enjoy food, festival, and Christmas lights.
We started our walk from the outdoor garden of Hyatt Regency where river runs through the hotel.
The Riverwalk is filled with trees, bushes, flowers, various plants. It has been a popular place for wedding, celebrations, and special events.
After walking a couple miles along the river toward north, we took a brunch break at a Latin restaurant,
then strolled around the market place where local farmers sell herbs, veggies, honey, and bakeries.
Pleasantly, we ran into an annual clay festival!
A few steps away, you can find a spot to enjoy gourmet coffee, french pastries, and ice cream.
A few feet further, there is another beautiful and inviting urban garden.
At night, you can enjoy a fine dinner by the river and watch the Christmas lights. Very relaxing and enjoyable.
It seems the concept of today’s urban garden is to create a space that allows people to interact and enjoy various activities/events with choices of food in a beautiful garden setting. Riverwalk may be an example, it stretches as long as long as 3 miles from Downtown to north of San Antonio and another coupe of miles to south.
