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
I took the river cruise to be able to see everything along the riverfront and determine what to do next. The guide gave some interesting history and was very comedic (aren’t they all). Although it... more »
The river walk is really amazing. Fun in spots, restful in others. We visited last year and again this year (6/2021). Both times we rented a hotel room overlooking San Fernando cathedral and the... more »
Just a packed touristy place with restaurants that are hard to get into. The manmade river is nice ambiance yet No need to go back more »
Beautiful and romantic. The tour guide was great! His name was Juan and had us informed and laughing the entire trip on the boat. We were able to drink on the boat and while walking on the river walk. They also have a fence with locks like the famous one in Paris. One of my favorite places in Texas.
This place is amazing and beyond beautiful!! Good for a good walk with friends, good food, good drinks and good attractions. Wonderful for couples too. There is a boat too that is really special. You can listen about the story of the place and it’s a good chance to make friends! It’s a great attraction of San Antonio!! My husband and I loved!!!
The River Walk is absolutely spectacular at night and if you’re in the state of Texas, go here. It is absolutely beautiful, and spectacular at night. However, eat dinner and go on the riverboat early in order to avoid lines. 100% the best thing to do in San Antonio. In my opinion, the perfect trio to San Antonio is going to the Alamo, then the River Walk, and in two other days do Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World (strongly recommend Sea World). In my opinion, on this list, there River Walk is the most important. The beautiful environment cannot be overstated.
Love the vibe here... its safe any time of day. Its the perfect date night for a romantic get away or dinner. If you do not want to spend any money you could just walk and chill as you please. Has shops and tents if you are looking to purchase souvenirs
Nice little enclave in San Antonio with shops and a nice walk along a little river. The shops and buildings kind of remind me of a Disney Epcot Center area. I was there in Winter, so it obviously won't be as pretty. I'm imagining it would we awesome to sip coffee outside in the spring or fall though.
