It is a nice place to stroll after a good meal in town as it is usually fairly quiet and laid back along here.

So much potential but yet dead, boring and so quiet. Maybe it will be good during the holidays. If you have been to other places like San Antonio, Jacksonville, San Pedro, OKC, Singapore and etc. You will be disappointed. The most positive thing I have to say is easy and free parking. A few shops and eating places but there... More

We have friends in Delaware and they brought us here for an evening meal and walk. Had a great time on the boardwalk except that it was a bit chilly. Would love to walk here on a nice summers day. Lots of restaurants along the boardwalk overlooking the Christina river. Their are a few museums along the boardwalk including the... More

If guess if you have nothing to compare it to, then it's ok...but I was expecting something more because I have been to many river walks around the US. I was wasting time while my husband was in a business meeting. I walked the board walk, stopped and had a snack, but that's about it. Perhaps I went at the... More

The Riverwalk is a great place in Wilmington. You can go for a walk on a very nicely paved path, go to dinner at various restaurants, have ice cream or visit the nature center. In the summer they have outdoor free concerts.

The riverwalk has quite a history and is filled with nice restaurants, markets, a minor league ball field and ...a mile long walk. It's not San Antonio, but it is well worth the visit on a nice day. Be sure to walk down to the Peterson Wildlife Refuge. It's beautiful!

This is a cool place to unwind and see the sites of Wilmington. There are a variety of restaurants along the the walk from moderate to pricey menus. Steak, seafood and pub fare food. Great place for children at the Delaware's children's museum abput mid way on the riverwalk and the Nature preserve at the far end of the walk.... More

We stopped at benches to people watch, stopped to read each description of the birdhouses, stopped to watch the water taxis go by, stopped to peek at diners in restaurants along the way, and stopped to see how the setting sun had changed the vista every few minutes. Finally we stopped for dinner. Will return.

We found the riverwalk to be beautiful, even on a chilly November afternoon. We parked at the Iron Hill Brewery, had a cold beer, then walked the walk. The walk was clean with nice views of the river and of downtown Wilmington. We felt safe with many business people and locals walking dogs on the walk. It was sad to... More
