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.

I loved the riverwalk, it was really lovely. Easy to walk and access and lots and lots of cafes and restaurants along the way. This is a must see and a credit to the city.

I reccomend you go on the Tour of the River Walk. Our guide was very knowledgeable. If you take pictures on every vacation like I do then take your camera along.

This was a great site. However if you have a stroller, considering using a carrier instead. Lots of bridges to cross to see the restaurants on the other side.

There are elevators to get to and from road level to the Riverwalk. The walk itself is about as wide, a bit wider in some areas, as a standard sidewalk and my experience was that everyone was polite and responsible to move... More

We ate at both Tito's and Rosario's. They were both good. We also ate at a hole-in-the-wall BBQ place across from Tito's which was excellent.
