The Paseo del Rio is San Antonio's favorite attraction. You can shop, dine, lounge in a cafe, or simply stroll along and let the strumming mariachi soothe your spirit.

Cannot imagine any traveler in San Antonio not visiting the riverwalk. The best way to explore the river walk is by foot. One gets a unique feel of being in another city within a city. There are several restaurants and shops on the riverwalk, out...More

There are a whole lot of restaurants and bars to check out on the River Walk. San Antonio does a lot better job dealing with their homeless than Austin does.

With lots of restaurants, it’s not overbearing with them but it’s a wonderful walk through town. Easy to get to since there’s signs that take you down there. It’s hard to go wrong with the walkway.

Experienced the river walk during the day and again in the evening. Both met my anticipation with heightened expectations. Both lived up to them, as well. I would say that the evening trip with the holiday lights, carolers, and seasonal decor brought more added enjoyment...More

Go! Plan to eat supper by the river and time permitting, sign up for a boat ride. I was there at Christmas and it was packed. Weekdays would certainly be less crowded but we just waited. Well worth it. So many restaurants to... More

I would recommend the Holiday Inn Riverwalk. It is close and has a wonderful view of the Riverwalk. Everything around the Riverwalk is pricey, but you are to expect that sort of thing! Enjoy your stay in San Antonio!
