The river walk is a must if you are at SanAntonio. During December, it is all the more beautiful due to the lighting ! There are nice restaurants and a food court at the end of the walk which makes it all the more convenient. Overall, a very nice place to enjoy a walk and spend time with your family... More

Lots to do in this area.. Restuarants, hotels, shopping, and lots of great walking in the area. You won't be disappointed if you spend at least (1) evening in the area

This was a beautiful place in San Antonio, you had the option that you can walk or use this little boats, in those you can heard a little explanation of the riverwalk and environs. There are a lot of restaurants and souvenirs stores, was very relaxing but you need some time to see it.

We were attending our daughter's graduation from basic training and a group of us went to the River Walk. This was a very pretty area; however, it was a bit crowded, which was a little annoying. What we enjoyed the most was the ride on the river boat. The "captain" was very informative and extremely funny. We saw a lot... More

Very unusual.... if you stay on the riverwalk you hardly know you are in the middle of a large city. Very relaxing

The river walk was Amazing. Great shopping and food. The Alamo is right across the street. We were just passing through and just had to stop and see. Glad we did. Wish we had more time to enjoy. I think would have been nice to see at night.

It is informative and provides history and fun facts about the area. It is well worth going on this scenic tour. You get to see the different restaurants to chose from and shops and other sites to see. It is well worth the money. It takes a little over 30 minutes.
