The centre of San Antonio's shopping and dining district, the Riverwalk winds its way for five miles (8km) along the banks of the San Antonio River. Visitors can explore the Rivercenter Mall along the way and take a stroll around La Villita Historic District.

An equally good way to enjoy the landscape and scenic variety of the Riverwalk is take a narrated cruise or dinner cruise with one of the many river boats. Over 20 events take place every year along the Riverwalk, such as Downtown Residents Thirsty Thursdays, Fiesta Noche del Rio, the Memorial Day Arts and Crafts Show, the Ford Canoe Challenge, Riverwalk Lucky Duck Race, Light Coffins on Parade, Caroling Nights with Santa, Fiesta de las Luminarias, and many more.

The cobbled walkways are a full level below the city's streets lending the Riverwalk a secluded, peaceful atmosphere. The Riverwalk is a good place to go for a night out on the town when in San Antonia, as there are plenty of restaurants and bars all along the path. Some famous attraction found along the Riverwalk are the Pearl Brewery, the Alamo, the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Arneson River Theatre, and the La Vilita.
