Day 1 – Home to San Antonio, TX 

The magic of Christmas comes alive on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas! Be dazzled by approximately 122,000 Christmas lights that form a brilliant canopy over the Riverwalk! After our flight, we’ll check into the Drury Plaza Inn & Suites for a relaxing four night stay right in the heart of the festivities. While we wait for our luggage to be delivered right to our rooms, we’ll take a wonderful river cruise along the fabulous Riverwalk area, giving us a great lay of the land. Tonight we encourage you to walk around the corner from our hotel to “The Saga,” a spectacular light show displayed on the outside of the San Fernando Cathedral. This has been a highlight for many previous R&J travelers!

Day 2 – Riverwalk 

This morning we will tour the impressive Witte Museum. Enjoy some time viewing natural history, from dinosaur bones & cave drawings to South Texas heritage & textiles. We’ll make a stop at San Antonio’s Pearl District for lunch on our own. Then we take in an afternoon holiday performance at the Tobin Center, experiencing the magic of Ballet San Antonio’s “The Nutcracker!” With live music performed by the San Antonio Symphony and a children’s cast of over 100 children, it’s magical! Tonight we’ll be immersed in Christmas lights as we take a walking tour at “Lightscapes” within the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. We will be amazed!

Breakfast is served at the hotel before we board the motorcoach for a narrated driving tour of the LBJ Ranch. Then we’ll motor to Fredericksburg for shopping and lunch on our own, followed by a tour of the National Museum of the Pacific War. The history of the Pacific War will come alive as we walk through the life of Chester Nimitz, a highly respected leader of the Pacific campaign of WWII. A special dinner is planned at the Knibbe Ranch this evening. We start off with a tour aboard a hay trailer, given by the ranch owner himself, followed by an authentic Texas Barbecue!

After breakfast at the hotel, our morning will be rich with history as we depart on a guided missions tour.

Explore & learn about this famous fort, originally constructed in 1724. Next we’ll have lunch on our own & shopping time at the El Mercado, a large, authentic Mexican Market featuring a vast array of goods, food, and entertainment. Returning to the hotel mid-afternoon gives us some leisure time to enjoy the Riverwalk. A delicious farewell dinner is planned at one of our favorites, Landry’s, on the Riverwalk this evening.

Day 5 – San Antonio to Home 

This morning you’ll have the opportunity to sleep in before a leisurely breakfast and maybe one last stroll along the Riverwalk before we load our belongings for the trip home. Our flight will get us home in time for a night of dreams filled with memories of our San Antonio Riverwalk Christmas!
