San Antonio river. There is a new section
of the river that has opened up: the Museum
Reach. It starts up at Pearl Brewery where
there are shops and restaurants too. You can
take the new river taxi down the river, through
a lock system, all the way to RiverCenter mall.
It takes you by the San Antonio Museum of Art.
But the neatest features are the art installations
all along the river, especially under the bridges.
The grotto, shown above, is along the sidewalk
beside the river. And the fish are huge, fiberglass
sun perch suspended under the bridge. They light
up at night, and are amazing! One of the installations
is made of colored strips of glass that sparkle on the
surface of the water as you pass under the bridge.
It is all a great addition to the RiverWalk, and makes
a perfect destination for a little tourism, a little culture,
and a lot of fun.
