Things To Do
Hilton Palacio del Rio provides one of the best locations to stay and play in San Antonio. Our hotel is situated along the River Walk, across the street from Henry B. González Convention Center, and only two blocks from the Alamo. In addition to these favorite attractions, you'll find riverboat cruises and waterway shuttles from Go Rio Cruises, with boarding right outside the hotel. Tune in to the streaming webcam and enjoy a live look at our beautiful River Walk.
Spring welcomes Fiesta Fun's exciting river parade while winter holidays hold the promise of the Las Posadas/Fiesta de Las Luminarias symbolically marks the 'lighting of the way' for the holy family along the River Walk. More family-friendly things to do in San Antonio include La Villita Historic Arts Village, the original 'little town' of San Antonio.
Whatever the season, San Antonio always seems to have something to celebrate. Join us at the summertime Folklife Festival at the University of Texas San Antonio campus, celebrating Texan culture, food, music, and crafts. A fun run, chuck wagon breakfast, and parade with horses and Texas Longhorns are sights to see during the free Western Heritage Parade and Cattle Drive in the winter. This event kicks off the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.
