    As long as you don't stroll up to the street level and stay on the river walk path, you can enjoy any of your favorite alcoholic beverages along the river!!!

    Beautiful walk. I’d recommend visiting around the evening for dinner just before it gets dark so you get to see it light up as it gets darker!

    This is a must stop in San Antonio. So much to see and experience. Take the boat tour to hear about the history and just take in the sites.

    This made it well worth the trip to San Antonio. Heads up for those with toddlers: there are quite a few bridges that make it difficult to travel with a stroller. Bring it, just be ready to lift 💪

    There is so much to do on the Riverwalk , shopping, restaurants, museums, ghost tours, and more, just be sure to make reservations for some of these things in advance! There can be a long wait.

    The River Walk is beautiful, and if you can afford a hotel that connects to it then you should definitely stay in one. There's tons of restaurants and shops all along it and there's lots of birds.

    Touristy? Absolutely. But the magic of this part of town can't be denied. There's lots to do and the people watching is fabulous. Tip: Get up early and enjoy the canal in tranquility. Magical.

    Try to walk the whole Riverwalk on foot. You can to see so much more and eavesdrop on the cruise boats tours while you're at it hehe... "Don't feed the ducks, pigeons or other wildlife."

    Beautiful at night and great for bar hopping but SO crowded! Makes a little scary when walking along river with no space to walk.

    Safe, clean and friendly. Purely for tourists. A public park well maintained by the city. Boudro's is the best restaurant on the walk.

    Wednesdays and mornings are the quite times on the Riverwalk. That is also the best time for a boat tour, so you can hear your guide.

    Don't fall in! No guardrails along the river, so as you are taking in the spectacle that is this great spot . . . keep mindful of your step (I stayed dry, by the way!).

    As fall turns to winter, this is a great place to wile away the day, appetizer hopping and enjoy people watching at its finest.

    One story below downtown San Antonio, the River Walk is lined with restaurants, bars and shops. The first restaurant on the River Walk opened in 1946.
