Nice walk along the river in the middle of the city. Very crowded at night. Lots to see and do
I love walking the river walk! It is always so festive with friendly faces everywhere.
Downtown SA and the Riverwalk area are the best thing SA has going on. The Alamo is well maintained and interesting, and the area along the river is beautiful, full of shops, foliage, and friendly people. Loved my time in this area.
Nice urban city trail. More of a happening spot than a hike. Nice place to people watch, shop and have a bite to eat.
Beautiful walk with lots of history. If you can walk it next to one of the river tour boats, they'll share all the great histories and you'll save admission.
More of a nice place to hang out eat and have drinks :)
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!
If you have never been, it is a must on your bucket list!
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.
