I was first on the River Walk in the early 1990s, and back then it was a pretty luminous place--constant activity, variety of shops and upscale restaurants. On this visit, it had faded, sadly. It's still an attractive place to stroll, and you'll find outstanding...More

Did not enjoy our visit here at all. Riverwalk is dirty, pathway could use a power wash, walkway filthy. Would not eat outside due to the numerous birds stealing food from your plate. River is green and smelly, also tunnels under pathways smelled like urine....More

The Riverwalk along the river is quite nice but the river itself isn't anything to write home about. It's pretty dirty and when the midday heat hits, it has an undesirable smell. The green color is dismal looking and not very inviting. All I can...More

Wonderful locations to visit. From downtown to the less travelled/busy upscale...from commercial to property side...we visited multiple locations, walked for miles multiple days. Beautiful. The architecture, history, waterfalls and statues, little bridges and the people watching...a daily activity and something we would recommend strongly for...More

If you enjoy nature, you will enjoy the San Antonio River. Take a boat ride, and get ready to see the wildlife, plants and trees. The ducks are so gorgeous and they will walk right up to you. It's a wonderful sight to behold.

I thought it was just tied to the river walk, but found out it dumps out into the Gulf of Mexico. Good cruises that educate you on the history of the river and San Antonio.

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.
