You read that right, 15 miles – and though you’re probably familiar with the iconic downtown portion full of incredible restaurants, unique boutiques, and phenomenal nightlife options, there’s so much more to explore here!

From Arts & Culture, Pearl, and more at the Museum Reach through Downtown’s authentic San Antonio vibes and all the way down to the Mission Reach where you can discover and explore Texas’ first and only UNESCO World Heritage Site – you can have many different adventures depending on what portion of the River Walk you explore!
