I can tell this was nice (or they wanted it to be nice) at one point, but most of the businesses are closed down and what's left is kind of sketchy.

We can romanticize reality and call this "beautiful" but the truth is the city has allowed this area to be take on an unsavory feeling. The sight of litter and the smell of urine are an insult to both the eyes and nose. Jacksonville is blessed to have such beautiful waterfront areas and our city should capitalize on these assets....

The riverwalk offers a peaceful path along the water. But downtown JAX is simply dead. As mentioned elsewhere, the Jacksonville Landing complex along the riverwalk is run down, and the offerings are less than impressive. I laughed at the long line at Hooters, which pretty much indicated that no one was willing to go to any of the 6 other... More

Jacksonville was a great vacation. The riverwalk at night is so pretty with all of the lights and sounds going on. We walked the river walk and crossed the bridge. It was awesome! I definitely recommend going if you need the exercise.

Was not impressed at all. The complex and riverfront walk was run down and dirty. Many of the shops and restaurants were closed or out of business. They need to pick up the cigarette butts, power wash the brick sidewalks near the building, clean the windows and doors, brighten up the inside and get some air fresher. However the water... More

Daily I walked back and forth on this riverwalk and enjoyed views of the river. The only downside some might see if that there isn't much along it as far as shops and what not (The Landing is a HUGE disappointment) but walk is well paved, has plenty of benches, water fountains, and bathroom facilities available.

Visited the Riverwalk late in the afternoon after a Conference in Jacksonville. While the weather was extremely cold for that time of year (low 40's) I walked both sides of the Alsop Bridge. Cold weather aside, the views were breathtaking and I enjoyed snapping lots of photos. I would have enjoyed riding the Sky Rail but couldn't find it.

We went on the river walk in January. It was a bit windy and chilly. Not much there....might be better during the summer months.

Walked the river front then rode the sky rail. Fun day even though we didn't wear our walking shoes. The Jacsonville Landing was dead because the resturants were not open at 10 am. The sky rail runs every 7 minutes and you can stay on as long as you like.

The St John's River and the Riverwalk are one of the main attraction in Jacksonville and are a must see when visiting the area as the view is wonderful. I encourage you to also take in one of the restaurants along the Riverwalk. As for the Riverwalk itself, I am happy that the City recognizes the need for some major... More
