The San Antonio River is 225 miles long! It is no creek, some places are narrow and some places wide. I think canals would be a better discription for the urban segment. The San Antonio Riverwalk will be the largest linear park(Waterway) in the nation once the 12 miles are developed in the city core.

Street level above the Riverwalk. You would never think you would find a place like the Riverwalk, smack dab in the heart of a city.

Memphis was definitely hoppin' last night. Rolling Stone magazine once called Beale Street the 2nd best party street in America (after Bourbon Street in New Orleans). With the big showdown last night at FedEx Forum where tickets on eBay were going for as high as $5,000, it was a great opportunity to see what a great river city Memphis is. Those thousands of college football fans were swarming around Beale Street, Main Street, and the banks of the Mississippi River. And, fortunately, the men in orange came out victorious.

OMG! Good luck jumping across the S.A. Creek! Lol. Wow! I guess being from Chicago gives you superior jumping abilities.

Maybe not. However, at least with the Chicago river, you'd have to know how to swim if you fell in. As oppose to just standing up!

You do know that the riverwalk is the just part of the head waters of the San Antonio river?

I'm just playing with you. No offense. I don't mean to be the typical chest thumping Chicagoan. I know we can be pretty obnoxious, having the best and biggest of everything. Actually I love San Antonio, it's the perfect place to go when you want to get out of the fast lane for a couple of days.

None taken, I just wanted to make sure that people knew this little fact since the real river doesn't start to take shape until the Medina River mixes with it south of 410 and it passes 1604 on the far southeast side. It can be rather bothersome when people see the river walk and think it's the actual river.
