The Riverwalk is a beautiful setting and has a great beach, but don't come for the shops or dining alone. There are only a few shops with nothing really unique or that make it worth going out of your way. The beach is the most unique attraction, as it is a very nice sandy beach on a river with schooner tours if that is an interest for you. The walkway along the beach and the shops is a very nice way to take a walk. Overall it is worth a visit, just not for the shopping, which they "oversell" in the tourist ads .
