River Walk, San Antonio, TX 78205

The Basics

The River Walk has a lively vibe throughout the day and draws large crowds in the evenings; dinner reservations are recommended or you may find yourself waiting a while. A great way to experience the River Walk—other than on foot—is by taking a 35-minute boat tour, featuring entertaining stories about the San Antonio River’s rich history. You can combine the boat ride with a hop-on, hop-off bus or trolley tour, and consider adding a stop at the Tower of the Americas or the Battle for Texas Show as well.

Highly recommended tour that covers historic San Antonio
We were only in San Antonio for 2 days so this tour was a great way to take in as much of the historic city as we could in just 1 day. Alex G was our tour guide and he was fantastic and very knowledgeable. A Highly recommended tour.

Along the River Walk

Learn more about the famous Alamo with a stop at the IMAX Theater to see “Alamo: The Price of Freedom.” Visit the Esquire Tavern, San Antonio’s oldest bar (dating to 1933), or head to the Pearl Brewery complex for a cooking class or dinner at one of its many eclectic restaurants. Check out the Aztec Theatre, once a lavish motion-picture theater and one of Texas’s most popular attractions—second only to the Alamo.
