Enjoy the River Walk 

One of the main tourist attractions in San Antonio is of course, the River Walk. The next time you're downtown, enjoy a leisurely stroll down the walkways or take a boat tour. Cooler weather is on its way to San Antonio, and it'll be perfect to sit down for lunch or dinner along the beautiful River Walk.

Farmers markets

If you're looking for a fun weekend activity, visiting your local farmers market is a great way to support the community. Farmers markets are great for finding local produce, fruits, vegetables and handmade goods such as clothing, jewelry and soaps. 

Is there another farmers market that we should know about? Share it with us in the comments section.
