We stayed in a bed and breakfast about a 15 minute walk from the main "loop" of the River Walk and were glad we did. It is very lovely and fun to walk around and people watch, but it does get crowded in the afternoon and evening. We were there for the very beginning of Fiesta (by accident) so I don't know if it is always that busy or not. We took bought a water taxi ticket-good for 24 hours- and traveled to the end (Pearl Brewery) twice. The ride is lovely. Our first taxi captain was great and acted more or less like a tour guide, the the second one was not; never said a word for the whole trip. By the time our second trip was over, our ticket time had run out so we just caught a city bus back to town. It was very easy and our inn keeper had given us a free day pass.
We most enjoyed the parts of the River Walk that went north of the look and south back to the King William district, where we were staying, and even walked south from there one morning. It is all very well maintained and clean; lots of ducks and other birds unfamiliar to visitors from the Northwest.
We had snacks and drinks on the main loop a couple times, very pricey but a good place to hang out.

The San Antonio River Walk is a unique experience. It runs one level below the street through downtown. Lined with shops and eateries it makes for a very pleasant afternoon strolling along the river. Unfortunately, the restaurant we chose was a disappointment but we won't go into that. So, if you're looking for a laid back enjoyable day, I recommend the San Antonio River Walk.

A visit to San Antonio would not be complete without a visit to the River Walk. It is what makes San Antonio unique. When walking the river, you can separate yourself from the city above on the streets.

We stayed two days at the Hyatt and had a wonderful time. We took the river tour and were glad because we seen more and learned more than if we had just walked around on our own. Food can be pricey but we managed to find affordable meals on the river by checking the menus they post outside the restaurants. I think it was an amazing place to visit and the history is interesting. Hope to visit again soon!

no matter how many times we go to San Antonio, we love going down to the Riverwalk for meals and walking around. Do your research and make sure no huge event is going on at the AlamoDome because it gets real crowded real quick. When it is crowded - it loses some of the flair.
