"Tourist trap"

Tourist trap. Don't expect anything. It is a total tourist trap. If you want to see Alamo, do that in one day preferably and leave. Stay in San Marcos just in case you may get harassed by this so called small town people.

"Great Place to stay, lots to do and see..."

This is a great area to live. Not only do you have the Riverwalk, which is beautiful, but you have all the attractions of downtown San Antonio. Now it's not easy to get a place here because of how popular it is, but if you can it's definitely worth it. At night the Riverwalk is packed with people, music, and dancing. During the day it is full of people going to and from work and running errands. The people are friendly and genuinely nice to everyone. They even have a party once a year hear called Fiesta. It's where the whole downtown gets blocked off and thousand and thousand of people come to celebrate the Spanish Heritage. It's a wonderful place.
