We took the boat tour and walked most of the riverwalk also. Relaxing and lively at the same time. Plant lovers will be impressed with the quality and variety of plantings.

Riverwalk is fun to explore, and while initially my friend and I got lost we soon discovered how to orient ourselves to the winding ways of the river. Plus if necessary one can always go upstairs to the street level and re-orient. It is a fairly small area where the shops and restaurants are, so easy to get from one area to another. There is also a lengthy section of Riverwalk away from the restaurants, ideal for walking, jogging, and just enjoying nature. I recommend also taking the river barge tour for a little history of the walk and the adjacent buildings.

The river is always a great place to visit. People watching at its best. Even at night, police presence is noted so you do feel safe. Great fun atmosphere.

If you want a different place for food and drinks this is it. The river sides are covered with shops, restaurants and bars. All types and prices to meet your needs. Many places have outside seating so you can watch the tour boats go by. Even better take a boat tour yourself. It is a great place.

Took day barge ride, which was interesting, then the dinner cruise at night to compare. Awesome. Lots of walking, and climbing stairs. Great food and shopping
