Love, love, love running on the riverfront in the morning - 5K course can be mapped out. Pretty all times of year and always feels safe.

While staying at a nearby hotel, I was able to take the riverwalk path from my hotel down the way to a nice restaurant. I was traveling for work and was delighted to find that three of my booked engagements were at restaurants along the walk and got to enjoy looking at the elaborate birdhouses along the way a couple...

We arrived ahead of schedule in downtown Wilmington and searched Trip Advisor for things to do. It was a short walk from our downtown location early on a December morning and we decided to take in the Riverwalk. It was a pleasant walk with some nice scenery - don't miss the unique birdhouses!

This "riverfront" is on the edge of two very bad neighborhoods. The river is actually a dredged canal that is highly polluted and smells bad in the summer.

Went during week between Christmas and New Year's, but the walk along the river was beautiful and the story of the shipyards from WWII were fascinating.

Pretty and safe, and close to some restaurants and the train station. Nicely rebuilt, much better than the old days. If you are in town you probably will use it; if not, don't make a trip to Wilmington just for this.

Wilmington has done a great job of rehabilitating the riverfront and taking a walk on the Riverfront Boardwalk will prove it. The buildings are all coordinated in their design and the area is landscaped well and has plenty of activities including golf, restaurants, a nature reserve and the ball stadium. It is well worth a trip if you have not... More

Views, safe footing, fresh air and changing wildlife and boating sites. An obvious daily walk, with variance options to walk through town and shop at any time.

A beautiful day along the walk is a burst of sunshine, flower scents, birds crossing the sky in droves, a lonesome kayaker, friendly greetings or two, a magical place nestled in Wilmington.
