“Nice but a little disappointed”
Review of Riverwalk

Riverwalk
Ranked #6 of 115 things to do in Wilmington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 20, 2014

It was nice to stroll but we thought there would be more activity on a Saturday. It was mid-day and really windy so I don't know if that accounted for anything it just seemed pretty dead. I would check it out again if I'm ever in the area during the warmer months.

I thought the riverwalk offered great views, especially with the battleship on the other side. Not a "hopping" boardwalk area, but enjoyable non the less, with food, drink, and shopping options. Good place for couples to wander about!

I was born and raised in Washington, D.C., and Wilmington's Riverwalk is not equal to the tidal basin especially when the cherry trees are in bloom. Nor is it equal to the waterfront stroll available in Boston, or Portland, OR, or Myrtle Beach. But, for a city the size of Wilmington, it's fun to do. Seeing the battleship across the river especially at sunset, walking the length and 'people watching' along the way, finding a restaurant to go to, or one of the boat tours available along the way, is always fun. Just strolling in nice weather along the boardwalk is enjoyable, while being on the river's edge. It's scenic, casual, free, and gives a good feel for what 'ILM' is all about. So, check it out.

We had a great time on the Riverwalk celebrating New Years Eve/Day. There were many people out with their dogs, and everyone exchanged friendly chatter. The Riverwalk provides a great view and shop employers and owners were friendly.
