"The Riverwalk" Riverwalk & Riverwalk Mall Tip by PookieRabbit

Riverwalk & Riverwalk Mall, San Antonio: 89 reviews and 160 photos


Every town should have thought of this. Take one fairly mucky and grubby stream and turn it into a lovely area surrounded by trees, subtropical plants and flowers.
Add restaurants, bars and plenty of atmosphere and you have a first class tourist destination.
Ideally take one the Yanaguana barge trips from the River Center Mall for an introduction and then make sure you walk the short east end part of the walk (the bit you do on the cruise) on a day and a night.
If you like a walk also check out the northern and particularly the southern parts of the river walk. On the latter you will find the delightful King William District of housing.
And finally by all accounts the River Walk is even more special during the Christmas season when its lit up with thousands of extra lights.
