We needed to get extra steps in so we decided to take a walk. Our hotel had access to the river walk, so we walked to the Friendship fountain. It was a peaceful walk with amazing views.

You can park at any of the parking garages. It's like a dollar an hour. It's just a nice walk on a sunny day along the river with nice views of downtown. People are out taking a stroll, jogging, office workers having lunch. There is...More

I enjoyed the Riverwalk. I was impressed by how popular it was with te locals, jogging, walking, biking. It was clean and safe, well lit in the evening.

Took a stroll along the Riverwalk on the St. John River in Jacksonville. Nice view of downtown. The walkway was well maintained and in a nice area. There are a few restaurants and bars along the way. The walk is not very long.

Disappointed as the beautiful river is not being utilized. At least we could not find the actual walk along the river. Asked some residents of Jacksonville, and they could not help us out.

It is an area with much untapped potential, but sadly, most of the buildings were empty. With the proximity of hotels, and conference centers, it would be a great place for someone to open at least a mini-mart!

Why walk the hotel treadmill when you can walk and enjoy the beautiful view of the St. John's River? Very accessible from my hotel, lovely walk with more shops/restaurants on the opposite bank but I was there for the exercise and sunshine.

Honestly, there are a lot of places I would choose before Riverwalk. It's pretty empty with many closed up businesses. About an hour north is St Simon's Island, a lot nicer place to visit and much more romantic.

No. Across the river from the landing on the Southbank. You can take the water Taxi from the landing across to the Southbank.
