If you're staying on the River Walk, there are plenty of entertainment options right at your doorstep. If you don't want to walk everywhere, however, the San Antonio Streetcar is the best deal in town. Run by the local VIA bus company, the old-fashioned trolleys only run downtown and are a hidden gem for travelers on a budget. They're a clean and inexpensive way to get around downtown. Look for the trolley stops next to the bus stops. The wait is rarely longer than 10 minutes. The routes and schedules are posted as well. A one-day pass offers unlimited rides for only $4. You can access any of these destinations by streetcar: Brackenridge Park, Japanese Tea Garden, San Antonio Botanical Garden, San Antonio Museum of Art, San Antonio Zoo, and Witte Museum.
