My husband and I took the 50 minute river tour, the tour guide was... More

Really a beautifully done river walk. It is very long and very interesting. Worth coming downtown just to exercise and see the river.

Enjoyed walking along the river during sunset. The area is getting developed and has changed a lot over the last 20 years.

It s a nice walk but is just a walk. Easy way to get inside some of the restaurants. Ther is no shade and it will be hot in the summer and cold in the window. Parking is hard to find on holiday and special days. If you want a good walk then this is the place.
