“Sky rail was fun and free”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

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.

“Love the View But Could Use Some TLC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

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 repairs to parts of it, especially the south bank timbers. Once city completes these repairs, I will probably increase my rating to Excellent.

“End to a day sail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We stopped at the municipal landing after a day of sailing the St John. It was refreshing to walk the area, see the fountain and enjoy a dinner at the Chart House. Lots of joggers and walkers. this seems to be the heart beat of Jacksonville Center. They have done a good job making it a multi-functional area. The landing was in good shape and the dock folks friendly. Nice ending to a perfect day.

“Nice place to run”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

If you like to run, and like to change the scene, it offers a good option to put in 5K. Most of it is on flat terrain, with the river on your side.

“A nice place to take a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Directly across the river from the Jacksonville landing, which you can access either by walking across the main street bridge or water taxi, the river walk is a nice place to take a stroll as most times of day, some restaurants like the Chart House and Ruth Chris steak house are nearby. So is the Museum of Science and History and the Freedom Fountain.
