Finally had a chance to walk down the new stretch of the River Walk being called "The Museum Reach". I only went as far as the locks over my lunch hour. I was able to see a river barge go through, even got some video of it. I haven't gone all the way to the Museum but I heard there's a Famer's Market by the Pearl Brewery and the fish that glow at night under the bridge are further up too.
They have some nice little resting spots, art and flowers to get a gander at while you stroll on by.
