We visited San Antonio just to check out the Riverwalk. So many restaurants, bars, and shops, all connected with the downtown streets just one set of stairs up!

Yes, it can be crowded and "touristy" but it's easy to avoid the crowds simply by walking a bit north or south, away from the main restaurant and hotel area. There you will find tiny riverside parks ideal for spending some time, and boat locks the tourist boats must navigate to go from one level of the river to another.... More

A beautiful, clean, meticulously maintained walk lined with restaurants, bars, and shops. The river is alive with ducks and water birds and turtles. If you go very early for breakfast it is sparkling clean and peaceful. The loop gets busy in the evenings. The servers at the restaurants were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this beautiful place!

Also we walked about 2 miles down the river away from the downtown and it was still beautifully landscaped with art installations. It was very relaxing, a true amenity for the... More

Beautiful, peaceful canal in the center of San Antonio. Lushly landscaped and lined with historic buildings. Take a boat ride to learn more about the area.

I wish we had more time to spend on the River Walk. What a beautiful day. Grab a drink, walk freely, and visit with the ducks!

Very well organized. Restaurants , bars , cafes and hotels on each side of the river where you can take a break. The walking area is wide and convenient where you can spend half a day. Most meaningful thing to do in San Antonio.
