Beautiful and fun walk

There were several shops and restraunts for tourists. We had a great time people watching and stopping in for appetizers and drinks along the way.

The riverwalk is an absolute must see in San Antonio! The people, music, margaritas, all of it is a treat!

Loved the walk on the riverwalk. would have loved to take the boat tour but wasn't wheelchair accessable. There were quite a few homeless people asking for money but they were not aggresive about it

I love to walk along the riverwalk. It is beautiful and clean and the city takes really good care of the area. Much recommended for a nice after dinner walk.

Reminds me of a small taste of Venice. Very well maintained river. San Antonio appears to take great pride in their city.

We spent the better part of our three day visit along the Riverwalk. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We took our time strolling along and ate in several restaurants. We also went in and out of the souvenir shops and the River Center Mall. Taking a river boat tour is an absolute MUST. Our tour guide was extremely informative as well... More

Wonderful place for visit. Little river in the middle of the town, surrounded by big houses. Many bridges and they all are different. Good restaurants, hotels and shops. Take a boat and relax.

The river is much smaller than I expected, but the area is kept up well. It may be enjoyed better on the Riverwalk.
