Located on the south bank of the San Antonio River, La Villita was one of San Antonio’s first neighborhoods. In 1939, as ground broke on the San Antonio River Walk development, city official led by Mayor Maury Maverick acted to preserve this...more

It's probably a bit stereotypical and definitely aimed at tourists, but for once it didn't take away the charm for me. It was like a beautiful, calm oasis, away from the busy riverwalk. Nice to go for a stroll, have a drink or eat lunch...More

We got to visit the scent factory and pick our mixtures from a myriad of scents, and in other shops could meet the creators of some of the unique pieces. This is so much more personal than the big box stores.

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 guacamole and they also have potent margaritas. Hotel Mokara had a very nice bar by the Riverwalk.
