Stay in the downtown area, make sure that you stroll the riverwalk which is shady and beautiful. Wonderful, fun restaurants along the route. Don't miss the boat rides along the river. It has been expanded to allow a longer experience of the beautiful gem of our city. The architecture is lovely as well. Lots of history around the river, enjoy... More

Been here two times and I'm looking for a moment to go back. Was here before Christmas one time. And with all the lights and the atmosphere with the children sailing in boats on the river singing Christmas carols you must go and see and hear it to

Doing this in a boat and staying in a hotel on the water is just a wonderful experience. I loved you could boat to various restaurants. We did a night time boat ride and it was great. This is something I'm really glad I was able to do.

When you come from New Orleans which is at the end of THE river of America, the San Antonio River is laughable. It's about 12 feet wide and 4 feet deep. What makes it special is the walking path that runs along both sides of it. It makes for a relaxing and pleasant walk, but "river" is a bit of... More

Take a boat ride. Learn the history of the buildings and of San Antonio. It is relaxing and inexpensive. Keep an eye out for Dirty Nelly's Pub next to the Hilton where you can sing along with the piano man or stop an get a hot pink cactus martini and steak at Boudros. Took my 12 yr old grand-daughter on... More

It's a nice place to walk around on. It's easy to walk and very beautiful surroundings. There are many restaurants to choose from. You just need to choose, what to eat.

It was hot when I was in San Antonio, but taking a stroll along the River walk was very refreshing. There are plenty of places to stop and have a drink, a diiner or lunch. I also took a trip on the boat along the River boat canal - there was a guide on the boat and he told us... More

leisurely trip around the city in a river boat around the river walk. Walking was enjoyable, the river boats were very reasonable, included a guide.
