“It's okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

It's not the most exciting riverfront park I've ever visited - I think you're better off getting up to the street level above to get a better view. It does connect to the lakeside walking/cycling track on the east end though, which conveniently connects you to The Art Institute, or further along to The Field Museum.

“Beautiful walk along the river.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We stumbled upon the river walk kinda on accident the first day and soon realized it is a nice walk along the river with places to sit look, eat and enjoy not to mention quite a few tour options. You can find tours ranging from a kayak to a river boat here on the riverwalk and many segway and bike tours will also bring you along parts of the riverwalk. This was a very smart way to bring beauty and commerce to an old industrial area that was the place NOT to be for a while. We enjoyed the walk along the Riverwalk.

“Walk, ride, run...or bike it..just do it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

It is simply one of the best walks in any American cities...walk it, run it , bike it ..do it your way...Chicago's down town and river walks are simply the best...ps. There are plenty of places to rent bikes down town...so, no need to carry your own...average is about $7/ hour.
