I took a boat trip with the guide. It is so pretty! a small Venice, they have quite a history, there are a lot of nice restaurants along the River walk, and pretty buildings with old architecture.

“Lovely walk in any season”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

As long as the weather is good (and it's Texas, so it mostly is) this is a great place to head for taking in the sights and finding a few places to eat. There are many, many options for food and entertainment close by. There are also some places to buy souvenirs and you could even take a riverboat tour. We didn't have the time to take the tour, but we greatly enjoyed walking along this strip and finding lunch after visiting The Alamo which is definitely walking distance.

“Very Pretty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

This really is a pretty area to stroll along with many interesting eateries to choose from.
So it was a great shame that for our 2 nights stay in San Antonio, an Arctic breeze was blowing through town, ice droplets/shard was dropping from trees as you walked under them & the whole place was almost deserted - no atmosphere whatsoever!
Another time maybe.

“Not sure what else you need”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

The River Walk is located downtown near most of the major attractions. It has restaurants, shopping, hotels and bots to tour the river. Yes it can be expensive to eat, shop or stay here, but the service and selection is still very attractive.
