a lot of FUN.

great bars, music and food. I recommend visiting as many bars as possible, it is quite diverse and you will find several venues that you will enjoy no matter what your age is.

There is a 35 minute boat ride with a guide that is a must. There are a variety of restaurants on both side of the river walk so you can have your pick on the type of food you like.

At $8 for a ticket, great value, a witty and well informed guide (An ex teacher), what wasn't to like?

A very nice walk along the river bank and did it on 2 different days and in 2 directions. Very clean and well kept. Plenty of shade if you pick the right side!

It has really grown since then with bar after bar and restaurant after restaurant and shop after shop! Of course, way down the end you can still find places where its not so noisy. I... More

If you visit San Antonio, you must take a half-hour riverboat tour. The riverboat driver was knowledgeable and entertaining, and I learned so much about the River Walk history. It was very reasonably priced. It's a must-do activity for all ages.
