Photo Adventure : The San Antonio Riverwalk

Photo Adventure : The San Antonio Riverwalk

San Antonio is a beautiful city with distinctive Spanish colonial flair. There is no better place to view the beauty of the city than the San Antonio Riverwalk.

Located below the normal city streets, the San Antonio Riverwalk is second only to the Alamo in terms of visitors. Originally planned due to the devastation the river created when the river flooded, the San Antonio Riverwalk in its current form has become as practical as it is beautiful. There are flood gates and a small dam that you might overlook as you eat Tex Mex and shop in the shops that line the banks.

Take a stroll or float down the river in one of the distinctive tour riverboats… you’ll be glad you did!

Bridge on San Antonio Riverwalk

Bridges are at regular intervals so that you can cross the river without going up to street level.

Ducks are all over the river!

Fall colors were still evident in early January.

The Riverwalk was lit up with millions of tiny colorful lights at night.

    The SA river walk is one of the best ones we’ve ever been to. It’s beautifully maintained and goes on for miles. A great time for the family, an evening jog, or a romantic stroll.

    I loved the Riverwalk when we visited San Antonio. I’m not sure if it truly is better than others, or if it holds a prominent in my mind as the first Riverwalk I remember visiting.
    Thanks for linking up to the Best of the USA blog hop. I was horrified to realize that the links weren’t showing up on my site. I wasn’t able to correct them until last night. 🙁
