Beautiful! great little shops and restaurants. Very picturesque!
We did have a double stroller and it was difficult at times due to the high foot traffic. Very busy and popular area of San Antonio.
Also, we had a hard time finding the handicap access to get the stroller over the walkways to cross the river. The signs said there were access points but we were unable to find them.

Still a nice walk. We enjoyed the sculpture garden courtyard towards the end of the walk.

Great way to see this area of the city. Can get crowded and/or hot depending on time of year or day. A lot of "touristy" restaurants and shops, but you can definitely find a few local spots here too.

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.
