“Really nice and the price is right - free!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

The River Walk along the Cape Fear River has numerous attractions and is really nicely laid out. There are numerous benches and several docks you can walk out on. There are numerous attractions, as the Battleship North Carolina is right across the river. You also go right by the Coast Guard Cutter Diligence that has tours in the afternoon and the paddle boat the Henrietta. Great vistas along the river. Convenient to several hotels and restaurants and a couple blocks from historic Wilmington and many restaurants. And all this is free although if you are visiting Wilmington you may need to pay for parking. A must when you go to WIlmington. Very nice wide walkway well built, well lit and well designed.

It is a beautiful place to take a stroll. Love to take my son for stroller rides - the walk is well constructed and the atmosphere is peaceful.

“loved this and it is great exercise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

The river walk is well marked and it takes you along the water front, providing history along the way. If you wish you can stop and shop or have a meal or snack along the way. Very well done with more improvements being made.
