LoneStarCon 2, the 1997 Worldcon: Tours

We have been researching local tours and amusements in San Antonio.
Barge Trips
No trip to San Antonio is complete without a trip down the Riverwalk on a barge. The restaurants and stores around the Riverwalk are all lit up, giving you a unique perspective on the city.
The barges depart frequently from the mall courtyard, from early in the morning until late in the evening. If you take the standard barge trip, it'll cost you $4.00 for a one hour trip.
LoneStarCon has chartered barges for trips down the Riverwalk each night (Thursday, August 28-Sunday, August 31) from 10pm-11pm. These charters depart from the Marriott Riverwalk Hotel. Sign-up for the each charter takes place at the Information booth in the Convention Center. The cost is just $2.00 per person. Sign up early in the con - each barge can only take 40 people. If there's enough interest, we might be able to add additional barges at the con.
If you want to charter a barge for your group that leaves at another time, you'll need to do it as soon as possible. Call 210-244-5700 and ask for charter information. It costs $70 to rent a barge, that seats up to 40 people, for an hour - $30 for each additional half-hour. Tax is additional.
In addition to barge trips, Yanaguana Cruises also coordinates dinner cruises. Most restaurants along Riverwalk, including that fannish favorite, County Line, will cater a dinner for you and 15-20 of your friends on an hour and a half barge tour. Depending on which restaurant you select, the dinner cruises cost from $30-$45 a person. Again, these charters must be arranged well in advance of the Worldcon. To get a list of participating restaurants, call Yanaguana Cruises at 210-244-5700. If you want to arrange an all-you-can eat BBQ dinner, catered from County Line Riverwalk, call 210-229-1941.
