This was my first visit to Jacksonville and we stayed at the Hyatt on the riverwalk. It was an awesome experience. The statues were beautiful. It was also convenient to shopping, night life and restaurants. I'd definitely go back!

Nice place to visit. Decent food court. Some nice shops. Close to San Marco which is really nice place to walk around & better restaurants.

shopping seems to have dried up and restaurants were mostly just bars so when we walked through at 7 PM on a Tuesday night there wasn't much going on except some homeless dudes and a few joggers. Got back in the car, paid the parking and drove across the river to eat at River City.

My buddy and I stopped by Jacksonville mid day on a week day, and found the place deserted. I guess everyone was at work. The riverwalk was quite pleasant on the west side, and I'm curious what it would have been like on the other side.

This is a great location! It runs beside the water and has a great view... Unfortunately, that is it- the rest of the scenery is and was homeless people. I am from Atlanta, GA and I am very used to seeing homeless people but this past Memorial Day weekend was ridiculous! What has happened to Jacksonville? We parked a few... More

There were some kids who were students at the local arts school playing jazz music on the sidewalk and it was the best. We danced and gave them a donation. Good to see kids doing positive things.

There's no real food or drink options and was pretty deserted on a Wednesday at 6pm. BTW saw not one homeless person (saw from a review). There is a water taxi that will take you across to restaurants😃

I was excited to visit the Riverwalk, anticipating a casual waterside dining and shopping area. It is actually quite sad. It just looks old and tired and looks like it would cater more to the college bar scene. It has the potential to be something beautiful and inviting with a little attention.

The Southbank Riverwalk has been completely rebuilt, and is now a 1,400 foot long concrete and brick paver Riverwalk. It has wonderful views (Northbank skyline, passing boats, bridges, and sometimes dolphins swimming in the river), plenty of benches (many with shade sails), a beautiful Navy Memorial / fountain. Located near Museum of Science and History, with easy access from all... More
