A great place to take a lunch from any nearby restaurant and relax in front of the historic San Fernando Cathedral. (Try Jerry's Chicago Style Hot Dogs a half block away.) Work a few blocks away, so I've visited here many times. Plaza fountains and...More

The history of the Alamo battle displayed as a wonderful laser show starting at 9.00 pm... It's a fantastic, unique experience, very professionally done...you will surely enjoy it. So, if you are downtown at the cathedral around that time in the evening, stop by!

Saturday evening light show is a plus. Explains the forming of Texas. Beautiful and relaxing after a long river walk.

Now this is of course a place that cost you nothing to visit, this already should get 5 stars from you. But I know some people believe free stuff isn't good and they want to pay for it or so. You have direct connection to...More

We enjoyed walking through this and relaxing, watching people, etc. If you have the time to stroll along this area, you will not be disappointed. Make a day of it and keep moving toward the Alamo Plaza (not far from here).
