The River Walk’s cobblestone paths, located just steps from the Convention Center and one level below the busy city above, wind gently through the city center, offering scenic pathways and waterways leading to restaurants, shops, and cultural and historic sites.

 

If you’d rather ride than walk, you’ll find several unique, fun options for getting around downtown San Antonio. The River Taxi stops at various locations on the River Walk. One-way, one-day, and multiple-day passes are offered. The historic Streetcars, the Sightseer Special (Bus 7), and the B-Cycle Bike Share System are available to explore the downtown streets.
