The two mile river walk is a really pleasant feature of Wilmington, NC. there are hotels along the street side and, of course the river, boats, the bridge and wildlife on the river side. The information booth was handy and the attendant very friendly and...More

Great views of the river and battleship, but the pathway is not the easiest to maneuver. Lots of great restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance on the Hilton.

It's a pleasant stroll along the Cape Fear river, but short. The USS North Carolina is across the river and you can take a ferry to it. On the weekends in the summer they have a farmers market and an artisans market. Lots of gifty...More

If in Wilmington, don't miss taking a stroll on the riverwalk. Restaurants, shops and the beautiful river. Very alive and busy on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in May.

Really nice walk along the river! Would recommend for an evening stroll. You'll see the sunset right long the river. So beautiful and romantic!

Beautiful wide walkway along the river front. Accessible from some hotels and a block away from restaurants and activities in downtown.

Enjoyed walking up and down. Great views. Water is brown and dirty so tried not to focus on it. Many of the posts are not sid but broken wood, so people have put cigarettes and trash. Very shameful.

The walk has been very well laid out, unfortunately there is quite some building activity going on which doesn’t contribute to the experience. On top of that it rained when we visited, that didn’t help either. A nice activity for a sunny day.

Always nice to walk along a river. In this case a nice wooden path with signs. Great idea and well maintained. Along the way a lot of hotels and restaurants.

Plenty of parking available along the RiverWalk, as well as within a satisfactory walking distance from the walk.

The places listed in the other posts are certainly good. Big fan of Elijah's. Also in the area but a block off the Riverwalk is "The Basic", which has been good 2 of the 3 times I've eaten there. Okay, but not out of the... More
