River Walk, San Antonio, TX 78205

The Basics

The River Walk has a lively vibe throughout the day and draws large crowds in the evenings; dinner reservations are recommended or you may find yourself waiting a while. A great way to experience the River Walk—other than on foot—is by taking a 35-minute boat tour, featuring entertaining stories about the San Antonio River’s rich history. You can combine the boat ride with a hop-on, hop-off bus or trolley tour, and consider adding a stop at the Tower of the Americas or the Battle for Texas Show as well.

San Antonio River Walk Cruise, Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour and Tower of the Americas
This package was a perfect way to have all the tickets in hand before arriving at each place and avoiding lines. Walked right on to most everything. Enjoyed the River walk and boat ride during the first day, the tower at night (love seeing the lights of the city), we’re grateful for the 2nd day for the bus, and We loved sitting on the top tier for better views and more air. It is helpful to know the bus stops running at 4:30.

We LOVED the riverboat cruise the most. The construction which is out of your control made it difficult to see many of the landmarks described. Bus driver was fun.

Along the River Walk

Learn more about the famous Alamo with a stop at the IMAX Theater to see “Alamo: The Price of Freedom.” Visit the Esquire Tavern, San Antonio’s oldest bar (dating to 1933), or head to the Pearl Brewery complex for a cooking class or dinner at one of its many eclectic restaurants. Check out the Aztec Theatre, once a lavish motion-picture theater and one of Texas’s most popular attractions—second only to the Alamo.
