“I love the Riverwalk. It's beautifully cared for and stress dissolves away.”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The trees and flowers are beautiful, the water clean, and there is just enough laughter and chatter in the air to keep it fun without being overwhelming. The ducks and birds add to the serenity, and I love the boats traveling by. Nothing negative to share.

great for an afternoon stroll; take the boat ride to get perspective, learn a little, scope out where you want to dine!

“Nice way to stay away from traffic”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

It is a lovely secluded area, which was fantastic to discover on the first day, but also just go for long walks at the week end. Plenty of restaurants and very pleasant also.

Have not done the boat which looked a tad too touristic for me.

“The San Antonio River”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The river itself isn't much to look at. The trolley's are a nice way to tour the river, but not my preferred method. It's a nice place to walk around in the middle of the city, plenty of nice restaurants and bars, and a few souvenir places if I recall. Nice historic markers along the way. Very neat, especially if you have never been before.

“A San Antonio Must!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I have visted the River walk 3 times and loved it each time. Once in the day in june, and once at night in november, and now in January. Every time was just as awesome as the first time . I recommend the river tour and if you have time to shop some of the shops. Pictorally the view is breath taking! I would say a San Antonio Must!
