Great view across to downtown Jacksonville. Came to visit our friends and see their hometown and this place is amazing!

Walked from Jacksonville Landing to the Cummer and back. On the way you'll get to see, first hand, some of the homeless folk that live and hang out along this walk. Did I feel threatened? Nope. But I certainly wouldn't be walking along here alone...More

The riverwalk is currently under construction so access was limited near the hotel. The walk passes by several of the bridges over the river. There is a small park with restroom facilities along the walk. That was helpful. The walk is used by both visitor...More

A beautiful riverwalk in the downtown. Night time is even more beautiful. Many hotels and restaurants nearby.

Beautiful area to walk and see the river at its most glamorous. Night time is very romantic, especially if you take the river taxi for a quick tour. The walk is nice and they have live music some nights, that give it a good feel.

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.
