This is great!

Worth the stop. Allow a lot of time, there is a lot to see. The food is excellent and some of the ducks will even dine with you.

The Riverwalk is a must to see and do when in San Antonio. Where else can you walk along a river, which is a block or so beneath the busy streets above, and enjoy restaurants, bars, and shops where people are having such fun?

The river boat tour is an excellent way to understand the river walk and to get your bearings on a first visit.

A most enjoyable relaxing experience and can be very romantic at night too. So guys, this is a great " first date" idea. Dinner at one of the River Walk restaurants then a nice stroll around.

You can tell a lot about a city how it takes care of it's waterways. San Antonio makes sure that the river which flows through the city is clean and pedestrian friendly.
