This is one of the best attraction of San Antonio. Take a boat guided tour in the man made canals. River walk as few best restaurants which are worth trying.

The Riverwalk is a pleasant experience no matter what time of year you visit. The restaurants are numerous but some of our favorites are Casa Rio Restaurant and Rio Rio Restaurant. Grab a frozen margarita or your favorite beverage and sit outside along the Riverwalk and enjoy the great food and people watching. Don't forget to explore the shops along the walk and some of the good ones are up on the higher levels or street levels. Also go up on the street level and grab a shuttle to the Mercado or Mexican Marketplace. But that's another review altogether. Just don't miss either the Riverwalk or the Mercado.

To have a golden asset such as the Riverwalk at the heart of your city makes San Antonio a really special place to visit. For me, a visitor from Ireland, the Riverwalk is the throbbing heart of SA. Other famous aspects of the of the city are very special and historically important, but I see the Riverwalk as a golden thread stitched through the center of the city. Loved the restaurants, bars and all the other attractions which were really great fun and did'nt see one example of bad or rowdy behaviour. I did see work gangs quietly working away at different locations to repair and improve the walkways, planted areas and footbridges which is a really promising indicator that things are being well looked after. All points considered the Riverwalk really is a fantastic attraction.

There are a few unique cities in the US and the Riverwalk makes SA one of them. A ride on one of the electric barges that tour the river is a great way to get a sense of the river. Have a bite to eat or a drink at one of the cafes. Don't miss the northern extension of the Riverwalk, much less crowded and ends a the Pearl Brewery, which has been transformed into a series of restaurants a nd boutique stores. Have dinner at NAO run by the CIA Culinary School, also try a pastry at the CIA pastry shop there.
