When you think of San Antonio, two things automatically come to mind: the Alamo and the River Walk. The River Walk was conceived in 1929. Downtown had serious flood problems and Robert Hugman suggested that the city turn the San Antonio River into an asset rather than a hindrance. Hugman's brainchild has since become the essence of the city. The city's most popular attraction, it is often crowded and filled with children, party goers, tourists and locals. In the heart of the River Walk is an area filled with restaurants, shops and nightclubs, punctuated by fountains and towering Cypress trees. The River Walk is particularly crazy during Fiesta.
I always take my family here whenever they visit from overseas or out of state. Everyone loves it.
Although don't take them in the beginning week of January. They drain the water, and my family was visiting for a week, and was disappointed to find that there was no water.
Great place to see.
If you walk the riverwalk away from the resturants and hotels it is very peaceful. Becareful near the hotels/resturants as people are crammed onto a 3 foot sidewalk trying to walk in diffrent directions. If you are down by the River Center mall grab a drink and sit and listen to the music. It is wonderful!
We came to San Antonio to follow our PSU football team to the Alamo Bowl. We left loving the Riverwalk in all of its holiday splendor and everything about it. What a Cool Place! I have too many photos to process from dawn to dusk of this magical park. I just can't imagine anyone going to San Antonio, or anywhere nearby, and NOT seeing the Riverwalk and having a dinner there! Who could not like such a place! We will be back! Hopefully sooner than later! We were sad to leave!
Very clean and inviting. No smoking is a BIG plus. The food was fantastic and shopping was VAST. Take a historic tour and learn about the economy, missions, gargoyles, ethnicity, waterways, etc. There is so much to know and what a beautiful PLACE. I wish I could move there!! Just BEWARE of the pigeons pooping on you while you walk...don't stop for a longtime in ONE spot.
