I love to walk along the riverwalk. It is beautiful and clean and the city takes really good care of the area. Much recommended for a nice after dinner walk.

Reminds me of a small taste of Venice. Very well maintained river. San Antonio appears to take great pride in their city.

We spent the better part of our three day visit along the Riverwalk. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We took our time strolling along and ate in several restaurants.

Wonderful place for visit. Little river in the middle of the town, surrounded by big houses. Many bridges and they all are different. Good restaurants, hotels and shops. Take a boat and relax.

The river is much smaller than I expected, but the area is kept up well. It may be enjoyed better on the Riverwalk.

Keep in mind that there is a lot more to San Antonio than along the RiverWalk, but this site is awesome. Taking the tour from the vantage point of the river is a very relaxing way to see this part of the city. We did it after dark and it was neat seeing all the lights.

This is one of those bucket list places. A must see. It is not the prettiest places I've seen, it's crowded and it's waters are not very clear.

I usually stay downtown on the river whenever I come to SA. Walking on the river is usually a very pleasant experience (weekends and some nights can get pretty crowded). There are tons of dining places. And if you are so inclined, you can walk all the way to Brackenridge Park. Most of the walk is fun and interesting. The... More

So fun! Don't miss it. You can ride a boat and sit back and relax or you can walk or run it. Lots of shops and places to eat. Pet friendly.
