The river is very pretty. The riverwalk around it is well maintained surrounded by nice shops and restaurants. There are lots of little bridges that cross over the tiny river. Keep an eye on your landmarks so that you don't get lost.

The Drury is a great place to stay. It's location is perfect for walking to anything you want to see. It's a reasonable walk to the Alamo or the mall.
