#1 of 19,690 in Outdoors in United States
A network of walkways along the San Antonio River, The San Antonio River Walk winds its way under a series of bridges. Lined with bars, restaurants, and shops, the walkways offer a different perspective of the city, away from the traffic buzzing one level above. You can explore most of the city's main tourist attractions by following this network of pedestrian-friendly sidewalks--without having to worry about parking or getting stuck in commuter traffic. In many sections, no safety fences separate the sidewalks from the water, so be cautious, especially with small children. Our San Antonio trip itinerary planning app makes visiting The San Antonio River Walk and other San Antonio attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • My stay was absolutely amazing here! Alex gave me great customer service and he actually remembered my name during my stay which really made me feel at home. This young man made all the difference in helping make this a memorable stay. I had a great view of the river walk and loved my room and environment as well. I’ll be coming back for sure and would give you guys a 10 if I could. 😁👌🏽
  • Loved it!!! We had a great time and will absolutely be back! There were great restaurants right on the river. Lots of places to sit and relax and just people watch. Felt safe walking in the evening. Beware however, there are lots of trees and lots of birds who might just deposit a gift on you.😲😉
