A walk along the San Antonio river is the highlight of every traveler to San Antonio. Depending on the time of year, your experience can be peaceful or full of surprises.

Even that the Riverwalk it is visit for hundreds of people everyday, every morning you will see little boat picking any trash that felt in the water. It is a delight to see the ducks and birds in the Riverwalk

The river is a nice place to check out. The downtown end has a lot of places to eat and shop, the middle section doesn't have a lot but there is a decent amount of shade on hot days.

For me and my wife, this place never loses its luster. We love it and take in as much as possible every time we visit.

Walked along the river and it was amazing! Both day and night it's great! Worth eating at any of the restaurants as the food is great!

First timers must ride the boat tour, it is informative and entertaining. Venders in areas, across the street from the Alamo. Lots of places to check out, eat or just sit and relax. Great pictures.
