A gorgeous and picturesque walk. So much to see and so much history. Wear comfortable walking shoes and walk the entire length. Read all the plaques. Or hop on a barge and her the history - 10 dollars each

This is a beautiful setting to walk and get around San Antonio. Our hotel overlooked it so it was very convenient.

We were eating Downtown by the river walk. This is a nice place to walk and they have a large number of restaurants and shops that make the visit worth the time.

The river and River Walk area is very charming. We were a little concerned about walking so close to the river when it was crowded but later found out that the river is only about 4 feet deep if you were unfortunate to fall in....More

Miles of waterway with iconic bridges and walking paths through historic downtown San Antonio. It's worth the visit.

The river winds through the city, and you take a comfortable (not luxurious) open air boat ride with a knowledgeable guide talking you through the history and the sights. Nothing exciting, but definitely nice for anyone who appreciates quiet and history.

The Riverwalk has always been the "Tourist Destination" but living here and now being a part of the expansion North and South ... there is so much more to experience. The River expansion to the North goes all the way up to University of Incarnate...More

The San Antonio River Walk is a lovely place to visit. Although it gets very hot in the summer, it is a great place to walk through, full of shops, bars, and restaurants. We enjoy every visit.

Be sure and take a boat cruise. The river and surrounding areas were very clean. The history of San Antonio is very interesting.

$10.00 and the best money you'll spend there. If you are there during Christmas the ride is awesome!!!!

There are many entry points. The entrance near the Aloma and shopping mall parking could be ideal. Normally on holidays you will find it difficult to get parking space. As long as you can walk to the water taxi start point... More
