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.

Going on the river walk with small children and older individuals can prove very difficult. Wanted to do the boat tour, had to take a pit stop first. We were told we could use the restroom for free if we purchased our tickets first. We...More

The Riverwalk is an all right place for tourists. It has a lot of stores and restaurants, geared specifically toward tourism, which means that it's over-priced. While the Riverwalk is a good place to see one time, San Antonio has so much more to offer...More

We wanted to get our exercise in, and weren't interested in the restaurants or bars. It was interesting to walk along the river and out of downtown, to watch the atmosphere along the river (and the river itself) change. There is great mapping all along,...More

Very nice leisurely tour of the river scene. The trip goes thru the locks and takes you thru the hotel scene and thru the inner city areas. Well worth the price of the ticket. Sit up front if possible for the best view.

River walk is fun. A lot of people strolling. Bars. Clubs. Restaraunts. And places to go. Mexican food. Yum. A lot of convention and meetings. This is fun spot afterward. The boat ride is fun as well. We had a good time

If the weather is nice, taking a stroll along the riverwalk is nice, and if you get hungry, there are plenty of restaurants along the river to choose from. There are also plenty of bars and clubs along or near the river for the night...More

In summer, if you like the smell of urine and overpriced chain restaurants, you will like the riverwalk. Landry's Restaurants? Every one of their brands right in a row. A gew independents thrown in, but the best restaurants in San Antonio tend to be OFF...More

I just love this place. You just walk and see nothing and suddenly you see the river down, and restaurants, and people, and boats.. The jewel in San Antonio. We really enjoyed be there and hope we'll come back one day

The San Antonio River Walk is a unique place for any city to have. It’s a great city center that allows restaurants, bars and hotels to have a nice and scenic area of town to compete. I think that walking or boating the River Walk...More

The river walk is probably the biggest tourist attraction in San Antonio. It is lined with nice restaurants and the whole place has a very lively vibe. The boat tours are fun, but I preferred just walking along the river and enjoying the views.

Not located on River Walk but I would check out Mi Tierra for some good Mexican food. Located at Market Square. We read and heard so much about the place and was not disappointed.

You’ll never feel alone in San Antonio- it’s a very friendly city. Definitely check out the Alamo- it will be smaller than you expect but part of our history. The Riverwalk will not disappoint for people watching, hotels and... More
