What to Do in San Antonio If You Don't Have Much Time
Step out the south-side doors of the Menger and cross a pedestrian walkway to enter the mall, a convenient portal to the River Walk. There, in the Rivercenter, an IMAX theater offers a 38-minute docu-drama, Alamo: The Price of Freedom, a surprisingly worthwhile tourist movie that brings the historic battle to life. Artifacts from the 1800s and an Alamo diorama are displayed near the theater gift shop. Reward yourself for learning all that history with a riverside lunch at one of the mall’s many casual restaurants. 849 E. Commerce St. Streetcar: All lines to Alamo & E. Commerce sts.
