SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- See the beauty of San Antonio dressed in holiday style as strings of street lights ignite the city. The Courtyard San Antonio Riverwalk hotel is introducing a limited-time package to help travelers escape to the historic city during the most wonderful time of the year.
The River Walk Lights Holiday Package encourages guests to take advantage of the San Antonio River Walk hotel's central location while visiting the city to sightsee. Guests who take advantage of this deal will receive deluxe overnight accommodations, handmade artisan bread, homemade jam, a half bottle of wine and complimentary Wi-Fi. Rates start at $164 per night.
A city known for its spirited culture and fun atmosphere, San Antonio stays true to form while celebrating the holidays. Using its culture, history and the famous river, San Antonio has developed unique River Walk holiday traditions. From now through Dec. 22, 2013, Ford Holiday Boat Caroling will be held at 9 p.m. Each night, more than 185 caroling groups from local schools, churches and organizations will fill the nights with holiday cheer by cruising the river and singing classic Christmas carols. On Dec. 6, the San Antonio River Authority will kick off the holiday season with the River of Lights. During this celebration, families can board a decked out riverboat and visit with Santa Claus while enjoying live entertainment and lights all around. A Holiday Arts & Crafts Show will be held Dec. 13-15 and will provide River Walk attendees the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts. A peaceful tradition, the Fiesta de las Luminarias is a century-old tradition in which candles line the walkways of the Riverwalk at dusk on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and symbolize the path for the Holy Family.
After a full day of exploring, vacationers can return to their rooms at the San Antonio hotel on the River Walk. Adults will appreciate the bread, jam and wine included in their package deal while kids cozy up in luxurious beds topped with crisp linens, custom comforters and fluffy pillows and watch their favorite holiday movies on the flat-screen TVs.
