So nice to walk along the river, squirrels were roaming it was a cool brisk afternoon stroll with just a feeling of calmness hearing the water flow and the rapids from afar.

I was visiting in December but the weather was sunny and low 50's. There were very few people on the Riverwalk so it was peaceful and quiet,

This is a beautiful place and very relaxing. This is a very good place for picture taking. They have river rafting and also a place to zip line. Lots to do and see. We spent about three hours there. We had a wonderful time.

The Riverwalk does not really have much on the actual path, but it's within walking distance to the shops and restaurants located in "Uptown". The view is pretty and it's a great trip for visitors to take the pedestrian bridge across to AL and back. Love going to watch the kayakers.

They have added a zip line from the river that will take you into Alabama. Didn't do it,but might try it when the weather is better in the spring.

We were here in the fall. The trees were colored with yellows and reds. Easy walk. Could have walked forever. Great place for pictures. Couldn't find a restroom though.

Plenty of scenery to look at along walking the path. The river flowing by and the trees make for a pleasant time.

We've been here many times and it's always lovely. Uncrowded, clean, safe, and interesting. Many places along the way to stop and explore. Each time we try to walk a different section of its 15 miles. Last time we found the beautiful Historic District nearby and enjoyed that area. You can also geocache along the Riverfront.
