"The River Walk" Riverwalk & Riverwalk Mall Tip by TexasDave

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

  A sunny Fall Afternoon
by TexasDave

This was originally made in an effort to control downtown flooding. It has turned out to be one of the prime tourist draws of the city. It's mostly restaurants and night clubs, but a portion runs past the River Center Shopping Mall as well. Some sections are are not heavily frequented so just be aware of where you're walking, especially if you're alone at night. You can pay to take a barge ride around the area, and dinner cruises are offered as well. The ticket booth is opposite the Hilton "Palacio del Rio" hotel.

Directions: Downtown San Antonio, two blocks from the Alamo

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
