Stroll Along the River Walk
Also known as Paseo del Rio, River Walk is comprised of over 17,000 feet of paved walkways and 20 bridges winding in and out along the San Antonio River. Situated one story beneath street level, River Walk is lined with unique stores and restaurants. Thick trees rising as tall as ten stories nestle among the buildings and along the river, rising up to be seen from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Antonio. Casa Rio, the first restaurant on River Walk, has been serving tourists and residents since 1946. Not far away, the Central Business District is home to the former Joske’s. In 1887, Joske’s opened a massive 551,000 square foot retail store. A century later, the structure was purchased by Dillard’s.
