So much fun, so much to do. I love the water. Beautiful neighborhood. The restaurants are numerous and even the Marketplace is nice. The pizza in there is just okay though. Be sure to read the plaques along the walk to learn the history.

It's a good place for a quick walk. It's pleasant to walk by the water. More shade and more businesses would be better! There are occasional benches.

We are trying to visit all 50 states. Delaware was on our New England journey list, with just a tiptoe in at Wilmington. We arrived knowing many museums etc are closed on Mondays, but still hopeful to stumble into something. We found the Riverwalk and...More

My husband and I decided to take a walk with our granddog and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the walk was. It is not long, but very pleasant with nice restaurants, a beer garden and mini golf course. Hopefully it will continue to grow.

If your Canada, you truely don't want to waste your time. Go to see DuPont mansions instead. The beaches are yuk. I lived here for 52 years and once you go to an island is not the same. Water is dirty, toooo many people.
