The riverwalk is gorgeous. We visited it all three days that we were in town. There is more to do and see than can be done in a day.

Whether on vacation or just needing a day break, the San Antonio River Walk is a great place to visit. Shops, food, or a peaceful ride in the river. Whatever you need to find your center, you’ll find it there!

This was our first time here in 25 years, and what an incredible creation San Antonio has put together for residents and visitors with the beautiful River Walk! Restaurants, stores/ shopping, even wedding spots. Gorgeous!

We had a nice walk around the river. Well maintained and cared for. So much to see. It’s like a whole different city under a city. I feel like it’s the speakeasy of the past with bars and restaurants and music.

Stay by the river, not in it. Clean and well maintained area along the river. Get a bike and experience the more rugged areas, very cool. Seriously though, watch out for wildlife.

We loved walking along the river through the city, people watching and eating. We went during the day and evening and enjoyed the walk along the river.

I always like the river walk but it’s really nice in the spring . We were at the shops on the river walk mall which has seating and it was very nice to just sit and watch the river. Highly recommend checking this part out...More

An array of restaurants and bars on both sides of the riverwalk. Difficult finding wheelchair access down to the riverwalk but managed it and only got lost once or twice - persevere its worth it!

The Drury is a great place to stay. It's location is perfect for walking to anything you want to see. It's a reasonable walk to the Alamo or the mall.
