The Pearl Brewery is one of the coolest places you can visit in San Antonio. This brewery, established in 1883 and once home to Pabst beer, has recently been transformed from a historic brewery to a thriving multi-use space where you can eat, shop, learn, work and live. The Pearl is situated next to the recent Riverwalk expansion, so you can catch a tour boat or walk from the Pearl all the way downtown.
We made sure to hit every spot on and around the Riverwalk, San Antonio. On the Riverwalk we stayed at the Hotel Contessa with outside dining for breakfast and dinner. We LOVED that hotel and will hopefully get the chance to stay again their in November for BOA and State Band competitions.
Skip the boat, and take a stroll. As the longest linear urban park in America, San Antonio�s River Walk abounds with recreational features -- these include over 15 miles of hike and bike trails, 6 foot bridges, picnic tables, overlooks and river-edge landings.
