The iconic San Antonio River Walk (or the Paseo del Rio) twists and turns among cypress trees, winding travelers down dirt paths and paved walkways alike, crossing the tracks of historic Missions and modern art galleries. Stone bridges cast shadows that play with the reflection of the twinkling evening lights from the lively bars and restaurants around its most famous stretch. The San Antonio Riverwalk brings in masses of visitors all vying for a piece of the charm that makes the Riverwalk the top tourist attraction in Texas– and there’s more than enough to go around!
Good weather, ample restaurants wafting in delicious smells and a pedestrian culture add to the spirited atmosphere of the River Walk where people come to stroll, linger and where loitering is encouraged. This budget-friendly city welcomes families, couples or solo travelers looking to enjoy its old-world ambiance.
