Recently went to San Antonio, Texas and went to the River Walk. They have gondola rides around the entire Village, great restaurants and great hotels. Lots to choose from rather it be relaxing or shopping. So much variety and the Historical San Antonio Alamo is within Walking distance. Great day all around.

We always have fun at the River Walk. So close to so many places. Many good restaurants in walking area, so many good hotels on the river and close to many attractions. We love going to Buckhorns.

I'd hate to sum up an entire city by one attraction, but the San Antonio's Riverwalk is alone a reason to visit this great Texas city. It's beautiful, swank, hip, rugged, classy, all rolled into one. In addition to the breathtaking views, it's clean, safe, and there's a magnificent boat ride, sort of like a water taxi. There's shops, great... More

It's quite unique that the river cross the downtown of San antonio. We took a boat tour. It is fun and very informative. There is a lot of restaurants and bars on both sides of the river that offer you different kind of foods, well pricy.

I like the fact the river walk are full of restaurant and shops. Nice views and colorful. Disliked: It can be crowded. its hard to walk around people that are slow and stopping to take pictures every 5 minutes. Foods are very expensive.
