Owner description: The Paseo del Rio is San Antonio's favorite attraction. You can shop, dine, lounge in a cafe, or simply stroll along and let the strumming mariachi soothe your spirit.

The River Walk is a beautiful place to visit during Christmas because it is filled with so many lights, however, it does get extremely crowded and traffic is terrible. Still a must see though.

Walk away from the central tourist area of Riverwalk. Go towards the La Valitta area, the Museum Reach area, and/or the Mission Reach area, and see how beautiful the Riverwalk is. We particularly loved walking towards the Mission Reach, which takes you through the King William historic district. Stop at Blue Star Brewery for a quick snack & beer while you're out there!

We experienced the River Walk the Saturday before Christmas - we strolled the walk in the evening when the lights were twinkling, the boats lit up - Santa even had his own boat wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. The walkway was a little crowded and lineups for the boats were extremely long - but taking in all the sights, sounds and smells was a magical experience. Lots of choices of restaurants - the better ones have a long wait - but just stroll a little further and you'll find another great place to eat. Even though it was cool, most restaurants had heaters on the patios or the front windows were open to people watch.

Fun to walk around the river stop into restaurants and bars along the river. Recommend the tour boats for the best sights.
