We went on a Friday and spent the day exploring. It was busy but not so that we were bumping into people or having to walk very slowly behind a crowd. We then went over on Saturday for dinner and the place was crazy. We did enjoy walking and viewing all the shops and restaurants. The only thing we did not like was the restaurants had employees standing outside bothering you to try to get you to eat at their restaurant,

I have visited the Riverwalk many times.

We were visiting a small town near San Antonio for a weekend wedding and my teenage daughter suggested we go to the Riverwalk.

My immediate response was negative. I just felt like I had been there, done that & it was getting a little seedy as I recalled.

After visiting once again, I have to say that my love of the San Antonio Riverwalk has been renewed!!

It looked good. It was clean.

This was a Sunday morning visit with crisp cool weather, just before Thanksgiving.

Lots of families.

We took the boat tour. They have brand new boats. The guide pointed out a nice mix of history and quirky details. Fun facts for everyone.

Everything was as charming as I remembered, if not more so.

Kudos to San Antonio for its history and charm.

They will be celebrating 300 years next year.

I recommend visiting earlier on a Sunday, to avoid some of the rowdiness of the evenings.

Beautiful during holiday season.

Had dinner at Joe's Crab Shack featuring fabulous crab dishes and buckets right on River Walk. Then had a romantic walk there with my GF with lights all over. No mosquitoes Many boats ferrying tourist sailed by, making it looking like Venice water taxi.
