Our family is a fan of the Riverwalk and have walked end-to-end on both the Northbank and Southbank on many occasions. We are fortunate enough to live walking distance to the Southbank and on fair-weather days we can be found strolling along the river, crossing over the bridges and exploring something new along the way. When we time it right we are out and about at sunset (and the Acosta bridge offers the best view) then head to Friendship Fountain at dusk to catch the lights.
Many times we will stroll when there is an event along the river (Riverside Arts Market, Community First Saturdays, Jax Landing events, fireworks, etc.) making the walk multipurpose. When the weather takes a turn or if we get too tired, there's always the option to take the water taxi or the Skyway back so we never worry about walking too far out of the way. Except for the heat of the summer, we can enjoy the Riverwalk 9 months a year and have started incorporating it into our family fitness plan.
