What a beautiful hidden delight is the Riverwalk. Eateries abound, and the barges touring up the river full of tourists were a delight to watch. So much birdlife on the banks of the well maintained riverbanks, so much paving and rockwork. Entertainers were strolling along keeping us all riveted. Many water features and gorgeous lighting. The Riverwalk holds its own... More

Perhaps it was the time of the year and the weather, but this was not what I would consider to be a must-do activity. We we there in the evening and found a lot of drinking, smoking and people that appeared to have no where else to go. We had planned to walk after dinner but the environment was less... More

You can shop, eat and walk around River Walk and enjoy the view. Many bars and restaurants by the river. It is beautiful! There are two sections on the river that you can ride on the boats.

Have gone thier in the summer and during the Holidays. Both have thier own unique atmosphere. Concerts and performers and great atmosphere for walking around. During the Holidays the lights are up and the place looks magical. I like the fact that it does get a little cooler during the evenings, you need a sweater or light jacket.

The river walk is beautiful any time of the year but at Christmas time it is spectacular. The lights and the decor is not to be missed. There is so much Christmas spirit at this time of the year even a Scrooge will change his mimd

The river walk is a cool area with its own climate and feel. Though touristy, I find myself in a nice little atmosphere every time I go there. Some good restaurants, some touristy ones that aren't as great, but still a great environment. Watch for the crazy ducks, they'll eat your table-side guacamole straight off your chip, that's how good... More
