Feel nature as you move away from the RiverWalk loop

Once away from the loop of the RiverWalk which bustles with people and activity, we enjoyed the quiet walk along the river bank that could have taken us for miles.

A wide variety of shops and restaurants. We attended a wedding there and it was wonderful. The river cruise was nice to see at night time when everything was lit up. Ambiance was great!

Just stay near the main Alamo area and the convention center going toward the Embassy Suites is sketchy due to the number of homeless people hanging out.

Great walk for a sunny afternoon. You can make the walk as long as you like, or pop into one of the local pubs and enjoy watching people.

I love San Antonio. I think when visiting San Antonio a visit to the River Walk is a must. We (me,husband and two sons) took a boat ride to learn how they built the river walk and how they maintain the water level. It was very interesting. I have travelled to "San Antone" many, many times.

Perfect place to walk, shop, dine or take a boat ride. You can even schedule to eat on one of the tour boats!

While there are a lot of tourist areas on the walk, there is also a lot of see. Easy walking and the lanes are wide enough for wheelchairs and people to go through at the same time.

River Walk is nice with plenty to see. Lots of dining available, but they do close earlier than expected. Eat early.
