Historic shopping village with many shops and a couple of restaurants as well! I love San Antonio (used to live there and a lot of my family still does), and when I visiting this past weekend, we had about an hour to kill before meeting...More

This is a cute couple of blocks (square) that it packed with history and neat little shops. There are a lot of different art shop, plus other crafts and a highly recommended cafe. Mostly shady, so worth the time to explore.

This was, like so many other spots in San Antonio, a lovely little spot. There are a few restaurants and shops but it was strangely quiet with very few people around both times that we stopped there.

I was nicely surprised by La Villita just 5 min from the riverwalk. Very old village full of art shops, some more interesting than others, but characterized by super friendly people! There was almost nobody there when I went and the shop keepers were all...More

Seeing this part of San Antonio was nice. There was barely anyone there, and it was nice to take in the history of the area as well as the shops. Highly recommend

I love shopping in the little shops and boutiques in La Villita, though I feel like they’ve become more and more expensive and exclusive over the years. We visited last week on a Monday afternoon and several of the shops weren’t open, and a few...More

Most of the shops open at 10:00AM. It’s a nice stroll through a little picturesque village of shops, galleries and cafes. It’s not an over the top shopping experience but more laid back which makes it a great stop. Our hotel was just a short...More

Both are along the Riverealk so a stroll southward from the hotel will get you to La Villita. Approximately 10-15 minutes unless you stop for beverages along the way! Per other response Boudros does have delicious... More
