That rules out San Antonio which is in Bubbaland.

The river walk is in the heart of downtown San Antonio. The
polluted "river" [more like a stream really] is the Olmos or San
Antonio river [can't recall which] that runs through downtown San Antonio.
Some large hotels along with numerous restaurants and bars are lined up
along a fairly long stretch [0.3 miles?] of the river which has
concrete walls and sidewalks along it. At night, it's pleasant to walk
along the river and check out the venues.
