In the rain, the walkways do become slippery & there are no guard rails or edges to the walkway in many places. On the weekends especially in the evenings, huge numbers of... More

The San Antonio River is beautiful. We loved walking along it. Everyone works hard at keeping it clean and maintained. The flowers and trees are beautiful and there are lots of places to stop and take pictures.

We went south for the King William area to look at the lovely houses and Southtown to check out the places to eat. We went north to the Pearl Brewery and checked out the market (it was a Sunday), listen to the live music and generally relax. The Loop in the centre/center of San Antonio is not typical of the...

It has been said that the Riverwalk is a very romantic place in San Antonio and Texas. I enjoy the walking and especially in the Spring and Summer where temperatures in the River level are slightly cooler. A fun place to walk, to and from your hotel, to and from the Convention Center. I see a lot more people enjoying... More

I was not really impressed by the river itself but the shops and food places are quite interesting. There are many foot paths and it's a very safe area.

The view of the river from the Riverwalk is nice. We took the tour on the Rio San Antonio Cruise line. It was nice an relaxing. The area is nicely laid out and river winds through the riverwalk. You can dine at any of the restaurants and get a view of the river but the best way to see it... More
