All reviews boat ride lots of restaurants people watching street level christmas lights nice walk both sides water taxi the pearl downtown area great place to visit walk around boats ducks taxis trees barge
We were here in really cold weather and still it was terrific, even though it was so cold they canceled the "cruises."
One could spend days, maybe weeks, enjoying wandering there now, and they are continuing to expand.
The River Walk area is a great place to wander, but the boat cruise down the river was my favorite part of our visit to San Antonio. It lasted an hour, with a guide to narrate--just enough, not babbling endlessly, but giving you good and...More
River walk it’s one of the great places to be, very relaxing, well maintained , super clean, really nice to have a nice long walk along this amazing place, great restaurants, good prices, and a variety of stores enough to have a nice shopping experience.
With To go beers, shops, and decent restaurants along each side, it’s a great way to spend the day. Also, between the two ends of the horseshoe there is a fence with padlocks that you can add on yourself. Wish I knew about it before...More
On our visit to San Antonio, this was our main way of walking throughout the downtown. It’s obviously well maintained, and there are maps all along the route. We went north from the main square entrance.
The Riverwalk is lovely day and night. The restaurants and shops are all very touristy, so the food (in general) is average at best. However be sure to take a River cruise. It’s inexpensive, informative and fun.
Would absolutely recommend everyone to go see the historic Riverwalk. So many photo opportunities. Beautiful scenery. Awesome restaurants. We went at night did the boat cruise loved it so much went back in the day..
The Riverwalk is well maintained. There are no barriers along the walk, so walk carefully. In crowded times, take your time- didn't notice any real shops, just restaurants and bars. Very shady and enjoyable!

Are you looking to stay downtown or out of the city? First, I really recommend making reservations early because The Alamo Bowl books up most hotels quickly, at a premium. If you want to stay near the historic Riverwalk (walking around the city is beautiful) I love the Menger and LaMansion. There’s so many places out of the city too, it just depends on how much you want to spend or if you’re looking for nice or just a place to shower and lay your head! Friedrich Wilderness Park is gorgeous. Crownridge Canyon has four trails in its 200 acre preserve. I don’t know if this helps but I hope you enjoy and see the Alamo if you have a chance!
