The Paseo del Rio is San Antonio's favorite attraction. You can shop, dine, lounge in a cafe, or simply stroll along and let the strumming mariachi soothe your spirit.

Plenty of parking down town. The boat tour is worth the money just so you can see most of it. The good was just mediocre.

A beautiful downtown attraction with restaurants everywhere. A lot of homeless people around. We ordered a few kids meals after our meals and handed them out. None the less a beautiful place.
