Melanie F. on San Antonio River Walk Mission Reac...
I love walking the river walk! It is always so festive with friendly faces everywhere.
If you like city walking with more then skyscrapers to look at this is the place. You have a mall, bars, popular resturants, a stage where many films were made (Miss Congeniality) and a IMAX theater all located along this riverwalk 20' below the city streets. Oh this place is awesome at night!
It seems that, for someone who doesn't like urban hiking, I do a lot of it. Certainly take the boat tour, but this is the best way to see the River Walk. This is one of the prettiest urban environments I have ever seen. Besides, there are plenty of places to stop and sample the local food, or to relax with a drink as you just take in the atmosphere.
