The Alamo, of course, is the most famous attraction in San Antonio, but the River Walk may be the best of all of the great things to see in the area. It is a beautiful and restful place, yet can be very busy and exciting at the same time. There are many great restaurants from which to choose, great margaritas... More

I have been to the River Walk many times and I always find it fun and refreshing. A good hike is to take it from the main channel up to the plaza in front of San Fernando Cathedral, then the horse shoe to the channel that takes you to River Center Mall and from there to the entry to the... More

Started a stroll in a rainstorm-no crowds! But as the weather cleared the colors and crowds appeared. Food and libations aplenty, colorful casual and comfortable. Wonder how much I this I could get brought back to Indy's canal area? Not sure the splashes of Mexican tiles would fit Indy, but it does make the walk nice. Frequent signs keep you... More

There is never a lack of food strolling along the Riverwalk. We try to hit it when we want to eat since you can sit, watch the constant activity of birds and people. There is something for everyone and crossing from side to side is easy. Parking on the streets in San Antonio is free on Sunday, but there are... More

This place continues to be a wonderful place for a stroll, especially in the evening when it takes on a romantic air. The restaurants are getting to be very dominated by chains, a loss.

Took a river boat ride in April 2014. Was shorter than expected but still a good value for the cost. Took us around the river and showed us some areas that we had not found while walking around. Good guide that was very good at trying to be funny (jokes didn't always hit the mark)

On a perfect day like today with partly cloudy skies and a cool breeze is the right time to hang out down by the river. Run or bike the trail, fish, feed the ducks, check out the wild life, and relax there with friends, family, or reading a book.

Cannot say anough of how fun the Riverwalk was. My husband took a stroll down there every night. The people. the restaurants, and just a mix of things to do. Catering to people for dinners, a quick drink, or even a poke into a souvenir store. Definitely no lack of things to do.

Enjoyed our trip to San Antonio and all its historic value to our freedom. Learned so much and it all seems to refer back to this river.Loved traveling to the different places and giving such differnet histories of how it started with this river...
