San Antonio Christmas: December 9-13, 2017

2 nights on the River Walk

5 days     $739.00

                                                                                                                          There is nothing that compares to the Paseo Del Rio, or River Walk, and the festivities surrounding it during the holiday season. Look through the itinerary and then join us for one of the most popular destinations during the Christmas season. We will enjoy carolers, food, lights, decorations, Christmas shopping, and so much more, as we prepare for the “best time of the year.”  Included are TWO boat rides on the River.  One during daylight and then again to awe at the magical displays after dark.

 


Day 1:  It is time to get into the Christmas Spirit and anticipate the festivities in San Antonio. After lunch in the OKC area we will continue south arriving at our hotel south of the Fort Worth.

Day 2: By lunch we will be in San Antonio. We will visit the IMAX theater to witness the amazing presentation “Alamo…The Price of Freedom.” Then we will head over to the Alamo to learn about the 13 fateful days in 1836.  Then to check in at the Drury Plaza Hotel which will be home for the next 2 nights. The hotel is right on the River Walk!  We will take a late afternoon barge ride on the river seeing the decorations along the banks in the tall Cypress trees.  This evening, enjoy a stroll along the river or even do some shopping.

Day 3:  This morning we are in for a real treat as we visit the S.A.S. shoe factory and outlet store. The careful way these shoes are made makes them one of the most comfortable shoes to wear. We will have a chance to visit their outlet store. Lunch will be included today. This afternoon we will have a local guide for a tour of this interesting city. We will visit the oldest Cathedral in the country, the San Jose Mission, and the El Mercado, the oldest and largest Mexican Market in the United States. Later, we will ascend the Tower of the Americas to view the beautiful city from 750 feet! Then it’s back to the hotel for a quick rest before our evening spent along the River Walk with a narrated boat ride under the lights!  Every night when the sun goes down, the decorations of over 250,000 colorful, holiday lights are displayed along the banks and in the tall Cypress trees.

Day 4:  Bidding farewell to our host city, we will make our way to Grapevine, TX. No one does Christmas lights like Grapevine. They are known as the Christmas Capital of Texas! There are millions of lights plus special Christmas displays. Tonight we will enjoy an included festive activity in Grapevine.  We will overnight in Grapevine.

Day 5:  What fun memories have been made over the last 5 days!  We will be relaxing in our comfortable motorcoach today, as we head home.

Includes 4 breakfasts and 1 lunch.
