The River Walk in San Antonio is beautiful and interesting. It is lined with restaurants and shops and many nice hotels are located along the walkway. I visited it in the daytime and in the evening and found it to be charming. I noticed the presence of policemen each time I visited and appreciated that they were there. At nighttime the sidewalks can be crowded. I gave the River Walk a 4 star rating because in places, the sidewalk is narrow and there is no railing along the river, so a person could actually fall into the river when trying to navigate along the sidewalk if it is crowded.
River tours are available, but you will need to get tour information from your concierge in order to book one. It is not a walk-up, first come, first served situation like I expected. I would have taken a river tour, but because I couldn't readily find the information about how to do it, I didn't pursue it.
I recommend doing your research on restaurants on the River Walk. I went to a couple restaurants there because of the convenience, but quickly found better restaurants and food within walking distance away from the River Walk.
