Lots of history, tourist attractions and fun things to do on the riverwalk.

The Riverwalk is geared towards tourism, and in the process much of the historical aspect is overlooked. You can definitely still find interesting history here, but the overwhelming push here is dining and shopping. Having said that, the Riverwalk is a must when visiting San Antonio.

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.
