Do the Missions trail.
You can rent bikes along the way, and the route goes along the river. The missions are just amazing.
Also the Alamo is not to be missed.

The Missions, in particular the Alamo and Mission San Jose. The Menger Hotel and its historical bar. This is next door to the Alamo. There is also Sea World and Fiesta Texas if you have any interest in amusement parks. The Pearl, which is just north of downtown. There are restaurants, bars, and shops in thie newly renovated home of the old Pearl Brewery. On the weekends there is a great farmer’s market. It is fun to visit the a Hotel Emma which is housed in the old brewery itself. Most of the buildings there housed various parts of the brewery operation, the stables, etc. We enjoy the botanical gardens and have attended various concerts under the stars. The McNay Art Institute is worth a visit as well as The Institute of Texan Cultures and the Witte Museum. The Briscoe Museum of Art is also really good. (Briscoe is closed on Mondays). For good Mexican food, stay away from the Riverwalk, however, Boudro’s has good southwestern food and it is on the Riverwalk., good Margaritas too. Mi Tierra and La Margarita in the Mexican Market are touristy, but fun and the food is pretty good. Mi Tierra has a good Mexican breakfast. Another fun place for breakfast is in the Guenther House which is part of the Puoneer Flour Co. The home is the home of the founder and has been restored. Tours as well as breakfast are available. It is in a charming part of town where many of the prosperous German Merchants of the 19th century built their homes, many of which are on the river. This part of town is known as the King William area. There are art galleries and some good restaurants here also. PM me if you have further questions.

The Mission Trail is spectacular. There are 5 missions, including the Alamo. The Alamo is the only one in the city, the others are spread out along the river. Once you enter those grounds, it's like you are back in the 1600's. You can walk the grounds where the Indian children played and had religious lessons, etc. Some of the chapels are still in use today for special events. A baptism was taking place at one when we visited.

Really enjoyed visiting. We also did the Mercado. We were there on New Year's Eve one year and there were bands set up in the street and Mariachis roaming the streets playing for people.

A few years ago I was in San Antonio with my wife and some friends and we went to Mi Tierra mexican restaurant. What a Hoot! VERY touristy, but just a lot of fun! Big place, lots of eating areas, each with different decor - and the decor sometimes is eye-wateringly colorful! Wandering Mariachi bands (there were 3 when we were there). They also have a gift shop / bakery / treat section with good stuff to buy - my son fell in love with their hot chocolate that has a hint of cinnamon. It comes in bar form - looks like a candy bar - and you melt chunks in hot milk.

We had a blast, I highly recommend the place. Even if it looks crowded, the wait for seating was short and they seem to be very capable even when very busy.
