Best Of Texas: The San Antonio River Walk

The San Antonio River Walk (also referred to as the riverwalk or Paseo del Río in Spanish) is a 15 mile long network of walkways which run alongside the banks of the San Antonio river. Five miles of the River Walk runs through downtown San Antonio.

The River Walk is home to attractions, shops, and restaurants, and is today a major San Antonio attraction in its own right.

The history of the riverwalk is fairly long, but its beginning can be traced back to a tragic flood on the San Antonio river in 1921, which killed 50 people.
