The number one tourist attraction in San Antonio, the River Walk public park is open 365 days a year. This beautiful riverway is lined with businesses, restaurants, hotels, attractions, and other services to make it the most inviting and entertaining district in the city.
Ride the riverboats and have dinner on board for the quintessential River Walk experience. Take a tour of the area or just stop by as part of the Alamo Trolley tours before heading onto different places. You might not want to leave, however, once you get a taste of the glorious personality of the San Antonio River and the shopping you can find here.
Boutiques and shops are sprinkled throughout the walk, spicing up the area with specialty shops and local flavor. Nearby is the Rivercenter Mall for more in-depth shopping, located only minutes away. Other attractions include the Majestic Theatre where you can see all manner of performances and various special events that take place throughout the year. Come for the 4th of July and stay for the Arts and Crafts Show or participate in the Ford Canoe Challenge and paddle your way down the river with your groupmates.
If you get hooked by the Southwestern flavor of the Riverwalk, you might want to step into one of the magnificent dining establishments. Dine by the riverside or in the air-conditioned venues to the sound of live music as friendly waitstaff serve up the most delicious cuisine from all over the world. Try La Paloma Riverwalk for fine dining, Boudro’s Texas Bistro for a classic favorite, or Michelino’s for traditional Italian cuisine.
