Bring the Kids to Sunny San Diego

Take Your Lady on a Romantic Getaway

Every year at the end of November, the San Antonio River Walk is lined with millions of beautiful Christmas lights and live music flows off the riverboats filled with ensembles ranging from standard carolers to Latino-inspired sounds. Best of all, you can book your very own boat ride to float through the warm winter wonderland from November 25th to January 7th, giving you plenty of time to plan!
Not Your Average Fishing Trip with Friends
