The Jacksonville Riverwalk has lovely views of the St. John's River and it's many bridges. It's a great place for a run, especially around sunset.

You really did a great job with this Riverwalk. The fountain the buildings in the downtown views are really great plus there's lots of nice walking areas and sidewalks.

I am sorry to say that it wasn't worth the time to go to the Riverwalk unless you just want to look at the River...It took a while to figure out how to find a place to park and the selection of shopping was slim...More

This is a good place to stroll along the river with a nice view of downtown. Not too many amenities though there are two restrooms along the way, and a Chart House, but no coffee shops or the like. Good for about an hour's walk,...More

This place was a lot of fun. Even though it was a grey rainy day, it was still very scenic and fun to walk through. If you truly love scenery, then rain should never spoil it and it didn't this time either. The river water...More

I enjoyed the Riverwalk in downtown Jacksonville very much. The shops and restaurants were average at best, limited in food options, a bit pricy, but that's what it is supposed to be and would give it an average rating. It was clean and there was...More

I enjoyed walking along the Riverwalk. I felt safe and secure on my own. The fountain is very pretty and love the changing lights. Everyone I met was friendly!

Although the view is beautiful and the walk is very nice the shops and restaurants are tacky and sparse. Huge disappointment as we read good reviews on this being something to do in Jacksonville--only if you just want to walk.

I remember 2 years ago when there where wooden planks and it was dodgy now it's beautiful great lights at night with occasional art displayed on walls

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.
