River Walk 

Sightseeing, shopping, eating, and having a good time. All of this takes place on a world-famous 15-mile urban river. The River Walk, also known as Paseo del Rio, is a San Antonio landmark and the country’s largest urban ecosystem. It gives a calm and pleasant way to tour the city, tucked quietly below street level and only feet away from the Alamo. Explore the river’s strolling route on foot, or get on a river barge for a trip and guided tour. Explore neighboring attractions such as the Alamo, the King William Historic District, and more from the center of downtown. Alternatively, visit the historic Pearl on the river’s Museum Reach to shop for local favorites. While in Pearl, dine and drink al fresco at The Bottling Dept., our neighborhood food hall. Along the Mission Reach, you may immerse yourself in history at our UNESCO World Heritage Site, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. 

Throughout the year, the River Walk hosts a variety of events, including must-see river parades such as:

  • Texas Cavaliers River Parade
  • Armed Forces River Parade
  • Ford Parade of Lanterns
  • Ford Holiday River Parade

Our tiny but formidable crew works relentlessly to bring locals and visitors alike fun and over a dozen relevant events to the River Walk.
