We have family in town, and they leave Thursday. We are wanting to go down to the Riverwalk at some point tomorrow. Will it cost much? I've only ever been there once, in HS and the school paid for everything.

Thanks!

The riverwalk is free to walk around and sight see. The only thing that cost money besides the restaurants is the riverboat ride. If you have an sa drivers license showing that you live in bexar county is it cheaper to go on the riverboat ride. You might want to look online and see if they have any discounts too.

DH has his military ID, so that's a bit cheaper. I decided I'll stay with the kiddos while he and his family go. I'm just not comfortable taking my 1 yr old and 5 yr old on the boat...

thanks!

Well if it's of any help, the water is only a few feet deep!

Take the kids to Hemisfair Park - there's also the Witte, HEB Treehouse, Brackenridge, etc. Lots to with the kids too!

the boats move very slow and there are no waves or anything. and like GW said, it's only a couple feet deep, but I definitely would not want to swim in it..
however, you might want to make sure you can get a hotel: Spring Breakers choose San Antonio | WOAI.COM: San Antonio News
my daughter works at SeaWorld and they have been over 30K every day this week, which is freaking busy.

The kids will love it. You will, too. And, if needed, have one of these beforehand....

depending on the attitude of the ticket seller you may only get the local or military price for the person whose name is on the card, this has happened to us a couple of times but it is not a huge amount of money in the long run

We go a few Saturdays per month (used to go more, but too much restoration work to get done)...in summer we'll ride our bikes there more frequently.

Rarely spend a dime

Like everyone else said, the only thing that costs money there is the shopping, restaurants, and the boat rides. It's free to go walk around.

As far as taking your children on the boat ride..it's always packed with kids and it's definitely a kid-friendly type thing. The boat moves very slow, and it's a GREAT way to see all of the Riverwalk and learn about it's history. It's a lot of fun for kids, and adults.
