I love Jacksonville. I love being outside and appreciating Jacksonville. The Riverwalk is the perfect place for this. It is great for walking and biking for as little or as long as you want. I wish where I was staying was closer, I would be here everyday!

We liked the river walk, there are nice views of the city, the Friend Ship Fountain, MOSH is nearby as well as the Main Street Bridge and Jacksonville Landing. We decided if we were there we may as well do everything that was in walking distance and we did. The only negative was the homeless people near the bridge and... More

I enjoyed spending the afternoon at the Riverwalk. It is a lovely outdoor area with plenty of restaurants along the way. You can also take a quick cruise along a section of the St John's river for only $7

Attractive mural under bridge and a cool walk over the bridge at night and or day. Nothing else to do around there, though. Friendship Fountain can be viewed- best at night for colors.

The Riverwalk is a neat area to just walk, jog or run or ride a bike. There is several things close by to see. Restaurants, small parks and the MOSH is close by. Take a few minutes and watch for dolphins swimming by.

We just bought a condo at the Peninsula. So I guess you could say we live on the Riverwalk. The city of Jacksonville did a great service to the community by updating this exceptional mile and a half walk. If you haven't visited you don't know what you are missing!

We were advised to go to Jacksonville Landing but ended up spending our time doing the river walk. It is a lovely walk and you can see the downtown city line from both sides of the river. We walked across the blue bridge to get to the other side but there is a ferry you can take but we like... More

The river walk is nice and clean. You can see the skyline from the water level. It makes things easy assessable, but its nothing special. I would be careful at night in some areas.

It's really pretty now that it is updated. It is best to visit at night to see everything lit up in the area. Not much to do besides walk along the path, but it's not meant to be anything more.

Parked near friendship fountain and walked across the drawbridge to the restaurants and mall. Ample room for pedestrians and the location is great for enjoying the view. Sunset was nice. Several restaurants to choose from. The bridge is lit up with blue lights at night that really add to the attractiveness of the view. The bridge and the building lights... More
