We were on the walk in the morning when the crews were cleaning. It was spotless. While not everyone walking by were clearly tourists, no one ever made us feel unsafe. Pleasant, serene, quiet and right in the middle of a city!

Simple a pleasant walk when windy and a bit cooler at street level. Walked for miles one day and well worth every step.

The Riverwalk was quiet this morning. Beautiful and the sun was shining. First time visiting here and can’t wait to bring my husband back here. Boat Tour was great and lunch on the river at Rio Rio was amazing!!!

Most associate the San Antonio River with the River Walk, but it's actually over 200 miles long. It originates about four miles north of San Antonio and eventually feeds into the Guadalupe River about 10 miles from San Antonio Bay on the Gulf of Mexico.

The river winds around San Antonio and is beautifully clear and flanked by a walking path (River Walk) on both sides, with benches and picturesque angles and views. Stunning. Spend a couple hours, get some exercise, and take in the positive energy given off by...More

We really enjoyed our walks along the River Walk and the San Antonio River. There were numerous benches and places to sit and have a rest and enjoy the river.

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.
