There's 2 threads already with requests of things to do.
Pretty good lists, do a search..
Museum of texan cultures
Riverwalk and various shops and eateries
Chris Madrids, best burgers
eat at Boudros
little red barn
see alamocity.com for more info.
ETA: search for "san antonio", or "san antone" here.
here's a cold-link:
That Holiday Inn is a few blocks away from the river walk, and the bars & restaurants along it, but within walking distance.
If you don't mind driving an hour or so, Fredericksburg has the Nimitz museum. Has some interesting displays.
when will you be down?

I didnt plan on getting a car, but are there any must do's that would require me to get wheels for a day or two
Car rentals are cheap. Get one. Theres a bunch of shops, stores and things to see downtown. Theres also areas outside San Antonio thats not far away. Get a map or have your GPS with you as the roads are confusing to strangers :)
I'd get a rental car.
San Antonio is pretty spread out - and many of the better spots to hit are NOT within comfortable walking distance of Market Square.
