This city is gorgeous during the holidays. There were so many lights and decorations up, it was truly magical. This is obviously a must do if you are in the city. Many restaurants and varying cuisine for you to enjoy, shops to look through, and an atmosphere you don't find many other places. You can also enjoy a narrated riverboat... More

I was in SA for one night, and while I have visited the River Walk several times before, I wanted to see it decorated for the holiday. It was well worth the trip, very beautiful and festive. I took a boat cruise spontaneously, and that was very fun. i learned a little more history about SA and the River Walk,... More

No trip to San Antonio is complete without a walk down the River Walk. The River Walk is mainly souvenir stores and restaurants, you have to leave the River Walk to see the cultural and historic sites - however it is very beautiful, especially with all of the holiday lights.

Hadn't been to the Riverwalk in years but always loved coming here. A little disappointed in the amount of people begging for money. Walking around was difficult because someone was always begging.

We love the Riverwalk, it's a great place for families to visit, but I especially love it as a couples getaway. Strolling hand in hand along the river, enjoying dinner outside by the river, while the Christmas lights are on is incredibly beautiful and romantic. We especially love the Ford Holiday River Parade and have made it a road trip... More

Walking, jogging or boating, this is a must see for anyone visiting San Antonio. Some of the restaurants are crowded, some are not. There is a lovely feeling about walking through historic places and seeing them enjoyed in 2016 and beyond.

This place has it all. Food, shopping, drinks and someplace may have live entertainment from time to time. I like the setting and the romantic setting.
