The San Antonio River Walk
Millions of people visit the River Walk each year to enjoy this unusual urban sanctuary that winds along the San Antonio river in central San Antonio, one story below the bustling street level.
The lush landscapes, quaint pathways, tinkling waterfalls, quiet pools, outdoor art and relaxing outdoor patios evoke the renowned public spaces of Europe.
What started as the vision of a young architect, in 1929, has grown, over the decades, into one of the world's most distinctive meeting places -- old and new friends meet up, travelers pause, families congregate, lovers gaze; and weddings, reunions, business meetings spill over into the River Walk.
