San Antonio Riverwalk Area GuideThe world famous Riverwalk along the banks of the historic Paseo Del Rio is the jewel of San Antonio and one of the Lone Star State's most popular attractions.
Located one level beneath the bustling action of downtown San Antonio, visitors are enchanted to find the Riverwalk—a meandering network of cobblestone walkways, quaint foot bridges, charming shops, and an inviting assortment of upscale and casual restaurants and bars to suit every taste.
Visitors enjoy a full day of leisurely entertainment, as they stroll under a sheltering canopy of cypresses, oaks and willows and bordering gardens of flowering ornamental plants. Along the way, visit major tourist attractions, including the Alamo, Rivercenter Mall, La Villita Historic Arts Village and Hemisfair Park. Experience the American Venice with a one-of-a-kind river boat cruise down the Paseo Del Rio.
The Riverwalk also hosts several events throughout the year. Depending on your travel dates you might enjoy Mardi Gras festivities, a St. Paddy's Day River Parade or a full week of Fiesta with everything from art exhibits, golfing events, masked balls and the Fiesta Carnival. Be sure to check their calendar and add a Riverwalk event to your San Antonio itinerary.
