Fodor's Review

Erected in 1939, this unique outdoor music and performing-arts venue in the heart of La Villita was designed by River Walk architect Robert Hugman and built by the WPA. Have a seat on the grass-covered steps on the river's edge and watch performers on the small stage. In this open-air format, the river, not a curtain, separates performers from the audience. Some of San Antonio's top events take place here, including Fiesta Noche del Rio, a summer show presented for more

than five decades.
