Unless you are into old buildings, it's totally not worth your time, HIt the beach instead. Those were the words of the person we spoke to at the tourist office downtown, Jax. Plus there were so many homeless person downtown, it's was overwhelming to see.

Not a lot to see. Water was beautiful. Stores out dated. Nice view if walking around. Nice place to exercise. A few nice restaurants.

This is a beautiful walk right along the river. It's a great view and good for exercise. Unfortunately there are no shops and only one or two restaurants along the walk. Was hoping for more.

Nice walk along the river. Obviously under utilized by a city of people. Only saw 5 people and a dog on the entire route. Public restroom was disgusting. Please give this review a helpful vote.

Honestly, there are a lot of places I would choose before Riverwalk. It's pretty empty with many closed up businesses. About an hour north is St Simon's Island, a lot nicer place to visit and much more romantic.

No. Across the river from the landing on the Southbank. You can take the water Taxi from the landing across to the Southbank.
