Trip Planner: USA / Texas / San Antonio / The San Antonio River Walk
A network of walkways along the San Antonio River, The San Antonio River Walk winds its way under a series of bridges. Lined with bars, restaurants, and shops, the walkways offer a different perspective of the city, away from the traffic buzzing one level above. You can explore most of the city's main tourist attractions by following this network of pedestrian-friendly sidewalks--without having to worry about parking or getting stuck in commuter traffic. In many sections, no safety fences separate the sidewalks from the water, so be cautious, especially with small children. Our San Antonio trip itinerary planning app makes visiting The San Antonio River Walk and other San Antonio attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

The San Antonio River Walk reviews
Great fun to walk and see the sights and restaurants. Worth walking in the evening to see the lights and the reflections on the water. Walking during the day was too hot! will return once more.

Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended. It gives you a unique insight into the character of the place. There are also plenty of places to just sit, chill and watch the works go by.

We got to see so much history and natural beauty. It was nice to stroll the river walk and see the bridges and restaurants that line the scenery. There were many Hotels that were along the river with great views. The shops around the village were nice to escape the heat. There were a lot of people in the heart of the Riverwalk but it was really cool to see the popular photos I've seen over the years. I am sure at night it would have been much cooler and beautiful with all the lights and night vibe.
The San Antonio River Walk is a very neat area. All ages can appreciate this area. It’s beautiful day or night. You should visit during both times and see if you have a preference. We like the day, but we often find ourselves doing other things that are closed in the evening, and visiting the River walk at night, but it’s a great spot any time of day. The walkways are right at rivers edge on both sides. Ducks frequent the water. The water level is just beneath sidewalk level and many areas do not have railings and you can be right next to it. However most places you sit and eat will have railings and such. There are a lot of places to eat, or get treats. There’s often live music at a place or 2, and even a drug store for your misc needs. It’s beautiful, classy, a great place for your family, or just you and your significant other. I highly recommend stopping down here if you are passing through. If you plan to, check to see when the next parade of lanterns is. Very cool lit up boats coming down the River.
