Great walk around the downtown area, so many shops and places to eat, the ducks come right up to your table. Just don't fall in, some spots don't have a rope or anything to keep you from falling in and on busy nights the sidewalk is packed. Take a ride on the boats too, that was a blast.

The river cruise is nice, though compact due to the course length of the river. Walking is the best option to experience all this place has to offer. Plenty of places to eat or whet your whistle.

Great for food, souvenirs, or just people watching. A nice mix of the old (churches, parks) and the new (restaurants, hotels). Very safe, and fun around every bend of the river.

We hit the Riverwalk and enjoyed the atmosphere, foliage and seeing all the people out and about. Went into the 5 n 10 store to see all the souvenirs of which we bought a few. I would recommend doing the Riverwalk on a visit to SA.

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! Don't miss taking a Rio River Cruise, a calm ride with a guide to give you all the interesting history along the Walk. We also stopped at Tower of the Americas, built... More

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
