The Aztec on the River - Opened in 1926, the Aztec Theatre on the Riverwalk in San Antonio is one of the finest remaining examples of the exotic-themed movie palaces that were built throughout the county in the 1920s. After closing in 1984, the theatre was saved from demolition and rehabbed to allow for retail and dining space. For those nostalgic for the Roaring Twenties, the Aztec Theatre is a must-see San Antonio attraction.
San Antonio Museum of Art- Located on the northern part of the San Antonio Riverwalk, the San Antonio Museum of Art has a vast collection of artworks from many different countries and cultures.
