The San Antonio Riverwalk is Texas' biggest attraction.

The San Antonio Riverwalk is Capt. Husband and I's "weekend go-to."  And apparently, we are not alone. It's estimated that over 14 million people visit the Riverwalk annually making the SA Riverwalk the most frequented attraction in Texas!

How many folks fall into the river?

Capt. H and I have walked the Riverwalk hundreds of times over the years and have never seen anyone fall into the  River, but there have been times when I've considered pushing rude people in. Just kidding. A little. Reports vary but it seems that at least a dozen folks "reportedly" do make it into the river annually as well. Don't be fooled, the Riverwalk can vary in depth, from 2 to 24 feet deep!

What's at the bottom of the river?

Ever wonder what is at the bottom of the Riverwalk?

Well, you're in luck, thanks to Youtuber 'Jigging With Jordan', Brandon Jordan, fisherman and treasure hunter, Brandon takes us on a deep dive with funky finds from the bottom of the Riverwalk. Check this out!

Brandon Jordan's dives can really be amazing. He once found a gun used in an unsolved murder! 

Here are a few of the finds from Brandon's Jordans Riverwalk dive.

 Just so you know, the Riverwalk is more than an attraction.

KWSanAntonio offers a great read on 15 things you might not know about the Riverwalk including that the Riverwalk serves as an important drainage and floodgate system for the city of San Antonio. Check this out! Nearly 50 people were killed in 1921 as a result of a downtown flood in San Antonio! So, the Riverwalk actually started as an idea for a drainage system incorporating the San Antonio River. That was before Robert Hugman introduced the idea of having an intricate flood gate system that doubled as a "marquee urban walk space."

Luckily for the over 14 million visitors to the Riverwalk annually, Hugman had the idea and proposal that we save the river from turning into a big drainage ditch!

Now to keep all the trash out of it! 

So... about that Riverwalk in Victoria?
