Around the River Walk there are a lot of restaurants, great to go during the day ( in summer is very hot) but nicer during the night. Look out for the restaurants specials. You can visit with family friends or a date. A good place to park is the River Center Mall.

My wife and I, our children, and Grand-children had a wonderful day on the River Walk, as we always have in the past. There were things to see and do for each and every one of us, of every age. My wife and I have been coming here for many years, and each trip has been better than the last.

The Riverwalk has been expanded so that you can now walk along the river all the way from downtown to the missions. The path is shaded and beautiful.

Nice to stroll along the river and enjoy the sites. Lots of people though. We took the boat trip at dusk. The trip was OK. A good way to figure out where things are located.

Always good to get back down to the River Walk as it depends on the time of year you can enjoy the sites and sounds. Just so happens our last visit was in July so it's HOT. But once you get down by the water and in the shade you can relax along the river. We enjoy this area of... More

The boat ride provides a sense of history and the guide points out architectural details you would otherwise not see. Excellent

I have been to the River Walk in San Antonio several times and it always surprises me that it's still as pretty and fun as it always is!
