San Antonio River, San Antonio
(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
A river walk along San Antonio River begins in downtown San Antonio and features shops and restaurants with outdoor seating. The Alamo is located along the river, as are four other 18th-century Spanish missions. Consider taking a boat tour of the river through the heart of downtown. The river was first documented in 1535 and its banks hosted many battles during the Texas Revolution, when both sides attempted to use the waterway as a blockade.

  • Just walking up and down the river walk is a fun thing to do. Lots of shops, food, performers, and art. 
  • A beautiful river crossing the city centre with several good restaurants on your way. Ride of a lifetime on foot and in boats.

  • It has many bars, restaurants, is a great place to go walking or dinner, also is the option of taking a journey that takes you through the entire river, you can go seeing bars etc, any occasion I play all teams of cheerleaders in the river by what when there is an event well definitive vale penalty to the boat.
