We heard a lot about the riverwalk when we were staying in Austin, so we decided to go down for a few days. It may have been because the expectations were high, but I felt underwhelmed with the experience. The entire 'riverwalk' can be walked in about 10 minutes, and outside of eating or drinking at restaurants, there isn't much... More

It seems that getting on a boat where dinner is served, is an easy way to see the attractions along the river and not have to struggle with the crowds and find a good place to eat.

Great boat ride. Sorry we didn't plan on being there longer. Had we known this was going to be so cool, we would have planned to be there longer. Was very interesting and boat ride was not expensive. They also give Senior Discounts, Military discounts. Wasn't expensive for kids either. Well worth the trip.

The waterfalls, winding walkways, plentiful restaurants and landscaping make the River Walk unique and delightful. We walked for a mile or so along the shady river. Many bars, restaurants, and other attractions along the way.

The Alamo gets all the attention, but the River Walk is where you need to visit. Places to stop, shop and eat all along the River Walk. Nothing better than an evening stroll there after the sun's gone down (and the heat has subsided). MUST SEE part of any visit to San Antonio.

On our road-trip to New Orleans for a Family Reunion with our three teenage grandsons, we stopped for two days in San Antonio to show them the River Walk and The Alamo. We had stopped here a generation ago with their mother on a similar road-trip when she was a teenager. San Antonio became a bucket list item several years... More
