Walk down North Market Street to the river if you have a little time to kill before or after dinner in town -- or to check out one of the riverfront eateries. It's not a major destination, exactly, but it was a pleasant way to pass some time outside.

This is a sidewalk that follows the river, which is not very wide or used by other boaters that we could see. There are some restaurants and places to stop in but not a lot of anything. We were disappointed with it.

View the various art on display along the river, including an eclectic selection of birdhouses. The River Walk will take you past several historic markers filled with interesting facts about the area, and, eateries where one can stop and re-fuel. Good family attraction. There is also a river taxi for those who want less exercise.

Even though the River walk don't have many shops, we really enjoyed our walk! The smell emitting from the different restaurants leave memories. The walk to the Dupont Center is a pretty scenic route! The River walk was not overly crowded and just a GREAT place to go! Don't forget to take plenty of pic of the different bird houses... More

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.
