Check out the Riverwalk on the James River and you will be glad you did. Lots of trails to hike, bike, go fishing and there are play areas for the kids as well. You can pull back and stop at one of the local eateries as well.

Love the local restaurants. My favorite is Grays in the old bus station just off the walk. Then there is Mama Croketts cider doughnuts. I’ve tasted doughnuts all over the world and these are top three! This is a must. Grab one and walk over to the Margarita bar for a delicious drink. Don’t forget Waterdogs! This area is even more fun when there is a river function happening. Check with tourism calendar.

I wonder if we missed something here. The bridge to the island was closed so never got to go over there but did walk beside the river on the city side of the river, up the gravel path. You really can't even see the river because of all the trees.

Our family enjoyed this trail for many years when we resided in Lynchburg and we still walk it when we go back to visit family and friends.

We had fun, walking down the gravel path, took pictures in front of the LOVE sign & crossed the bridge. The path after the bridge was shaded. Interesting all the Locks on the fences. The idea is simple: a couple crosses the bridge and puts a padlock on a section of the chain link fence. Legend is, The lock represents their love, and it will stay there for all of eternity. They then dramatically hurl the keys to the lock into the body of water under the bridge. They make out a bit. How romantic!
