I spent Wednesday in San Antonio, where the women’s basketball world will return in April for the Final Four. For those who haven’t been in the Alamo City lately, the Riverwalk has expanded north, up past the San Antonio Museum of Art.
There’s not that much in the way of shops/restaurants yet developed only the newest stretch, which is called the Museum Reach and had its grand opening in May. But I like it this way, actually. It’s pretty with some different artistic touches, such as large, colorful “fish” models that hang from the overpass that crosses the Riverwalk. There is also a lock and dam complex, which is cool to watch.
If you’ve never been to the Women’s Final Four but have always wanted to go, I would highly recommend coming this season. Not everyone likes basketball in a dome – the games will be at the Alamodome – but thanks to the Riverwalk, the city’s expertise in handling events, and the nice spring weather (much appreciated after a long winter), it’s hard to beat San Antonio as a destination spot.
