Christmas Spirit in San Antonio

Christmas Spirit glows along the River Walk in San Antonio Texas.

This southern Texas town’s River Walk has become one of the most visited attractions in all of America. A network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River wind and loop under bridges and create a lovely pedestrian-only experience one level below the downtown streets. When the River Walk is decorated with Christmas lights it becomes a must-see Christmas vacation destination.

Two hundred Christmas trees, each covered with 10,000 energy-efficient LED lights, line the River Walk reflecting beautifully in the water. The rest of the 1.8 million holiday lights wrap the 20 bridges. Adding to the festive atmosphere are passing river barges carrying carolers offering happy holiday tunes and Christmas carols.
