“Great views and fantastic place to exercise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

While not as exciting as San Antonio's riverwalk, the riverwalk offers great views of the city. The Northbank path begins under the Fuller Warren bridge (where there is a fantastic arts market on the weekends) and offers unique places to stop along the path. Unlike the Southbank riverwalk, which is wooden and needs repair, the Northbank path is paved and weaves through the Jacksonville Landing. Friendship Fountain and the Museum of Science and History are located on the Southbank. To enjoy both, take the water taxi or walk across the Main Street Bridge.

“Leasure Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

The river walk is beautiful but the water taxi is a difinite must. They are not expensive and add to the choices of restaurants.

“Great Morning or Evening Stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Fall through early spring are best due to the temperature and humidity but in either case it is most peacefull in the early morning as the city wakes up. You can walk both the Southbank and the Northbank using the Main Street bridge as the connector.

“What happened?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Years ago, Riverwalk was the place to be, but now so many of the shops are closed and it seemed to be a gathering place for people who may have been drug dealers or homeless people. I felt very afraid and we were even warned by staff at the Omni hotel to please please please make sure we were not out at Riverwalk after dark. Sad, really. A lot of money was poured into that type of development and it seems to have been affected by the economic downturn, just like everything else.
