Remember The Alamo?


Michael Martinez writes in the San Jose Mercury News that the Alamo and Riverwalk make for good destinations for wheelchair users visting San Antonio, Texas.

Two of the city's most popular sites, the Alamo and San Antonio Riverwalk, are almost entirely accessible to disabled guests.

The Alamo's walking surface is flat, except for its exit, which has a few steps but you'll be able to leave through the entrance.

Riverwalk, a network of walkways on the San Antonio River with shopping, restaurants and great views, has several accessible ramps and elevators and one accessible bridge to cross the river. But not all of Riverwalk is navigable by wheelchair. You can print out a map at the Convention and Visitors Bureau Web site:
