It's amazing how they harnessed this river years ago to control flooding and to create the absolutely gorgeous River Walk. It's worth reading about its history and strolling along its banks!

We spent the weekend on the Riverwalk and thoroughly enjoyed the river. We took a guided boat tour, which was a lesson in history, and saw things we would have missed walking. We loved the river...one of our favorite destinations.

The Riverwalk at night is extremely breathtaking. My oldest son and I walked around just enjoying the sights. I believe it gets better with each visit. Night is the best time to view.

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.
