The Museum Reach Section of the San Antonio Riverwalk  >>

In May of 2009 a wonderful new section of the San Antonio Riverwalk opened to the public.  After over a decade of planning and construction, the new Museum Reach section was unveiled to the public.  This new section of the Riverwalk adds 1.3 more miles to the most popular attraction in the state of Texas.  Starting roughly at the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel, the Museum Reach portion of the Riverwalk features beautiful landscaped grounds, wonderful walking paths and beautiful displays of public art.  River barges cruising the river pass through a lock and dam system at Brooklyn Street as they make their way up river, turning around at the Pearl Brewery Complex. 

If you would like to ride the Museum Reach section of the Riverwalk, simply look for a barge with large red and black checkered flag on the back.  They are the river taxi boats that operate in that area.  Get the drivers attention and he or she will pull over to the side and pick you and your party up.  The cost of the ride is $15 per person and is valid for unlimited rides for the next 24 hours.  Parking for the Museum Reach section can be found on the streets that surround it, around the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel, around the Wyndham Garden Riverwalk Hotel and in and around the Riverwalk VFW Post 76.
