San Antonio Map

San Antonio is one of the 10 biggest cities in America.  The city has several interesting areas worth checking out.  Each area has a unique look and feel.

The Quarry – The Alamo Quarry Market is a lifestyle center located in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of north central San Antonio in the U.S. state of Texas, near the city’s Alamo Heights and Terrell Hills neighborhoods. It once functioned as a cement factory until it was abandoned. Since then it has been redeveloped into a thriving market with a Regal Cinema theater dominating the oldest building and is surrounded by other businesses including bookstores and many restaurants.

River Walk – Today, the River Walk is an enormously successful special-case pedestrian street, one level down from the automobile street. The River Walk winds and loops under bridges as two parallel sidewalks lined with restaurants and shops, connecting the major tourist draws from the Alamo to Rivercenter Mall, to the Arneson River Theatre, to Marriage Island, to La Villita, to HemisFair Park, to the Tower Life Building, to the San Antonio Museum of Art, and the Pearl Brewery.

Pearl Brewery – Pearl is a culinary and cultural destination in San Antonio, Texas. As a dynamic and evolving environment, Pearl is committed to stewardship and learning. This historic gathering place is where everyone is welcome to eat, play and learn along the banks of the San Antonio River.

King William District – The King William Historic District is located south of downtown and bounded by Durango, South St. Mary’s, Eagleland and the San Antonio River. The district encompasses land that was once irrigated farm land belonging to the Mission San Antonio de Valero, commonly known as the Alamo. When the mission was secularized in 1793, the lands were divided among the resident Indian families from the mission or sold at public auction. In the 1860s the area was subdivided into lots and laid out with the present streets.
