Eat, drink, sight see, purchase souvenirs. The Market Square is a great place to meet friends or go by yourself. So many places to eat & shop, musicians on the stage. Lots to do!

Parking in the area ranges between 5 to 10 dollars. I'm not aware of any free parking. We parked within walking distance to the Alamo, River walk and the Market Square.
