“Great way to spend a warm afternoon”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Managed to spend an entire afternoon just wandering around aimlessly and still didn't see everything. Didn't have time to try the river tour, or see the battleship up close but there are plenty of off the wall shops, restaurants and night spots to try. Great place to sit back, relax and just enjoy a pleasant day!

“LOVE, love, love”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We enjoyed this very much. Loved seeing the sights from the walk. We went early, and it was not crowded. I'm sure it is a favorite place for many.

“Nice place to stroll”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

This was my first visit to Wilmington so I had no real expectations. The Riverwalk is a nice boardwalk type area that runs along the Cape Fear river for a number of blocks. There are shops and numerous restaurants along the way and we had lots of places to choose from to stop for lunch. The Riverwalk is nothing spectacular but a nice place for a leisurely stroll on a sunny day.

“Nice but a little disappointed”
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.

“Nice walk, good views, good food and drink”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

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!
