Just gorgeous

I forget everytime how much I love the river walk. The busy part is fun and the quiet parts are so pretty and relaxing, huge trees everywhere and lots of ducks and ducklings!

Nice to walk by its shores, day but especially by night. Beautiful bridges, beautiful trees and exotic plants, waterfalls and of course, water birds.

Late night walk down the Riverwalk. Got some ice cream and just people watched for awhile. Very nice evening and kids took pictures of the Alamo. We've enjoyed a horse ride before. They are nice to see at night with their beautiful carriages.

The River Walk is a beautiful way to spend a day or evening. The walk is beautiful and lots of great places to have lunch or dinner. The boat ride is wonderful. It is also very relax by the mall to grab a seat and enjoy the music.

The San Antonio river provides a beautiful setting for downtown San Antonio. No matter what time of year, it's a sight to be seen. Take the river taxi and ride for a better view.
