San Antonio River Walk

River Walk
San Antonio, TX, 78205, United States
TEL: (210) 227-4262

Why It’s Cool: This granddaddy of river walks charms with four miles of cypress-lined cobble- and-flagstone paths along both sides of the narrow San Antonio River. Locals and visitors cool off on the horseshoe-shaped loop downtown, meandering past trendy shops and stopping at hot spots like Boudro’s for a prickly-pear margarita and guacamole prepared tableside.

Don’t Miss: The Museum Reach river walk section, which opened in 2009 and stretches 1.7 miles north, passes the San Antonio Museum of Art. Landscaped with native plants and small water cascades, the route features art installations under every bridge.
