This did not blow me away since it was cold out and seemed rather dead, Maybe in the summer it would be great with the scenery, the water and shops bustling. A good little walk though and would recommend it.

Yorktown has a wonderful Riverfront Landing with several restaurants, ice cream shops, boutique shopping, and a municipal parking garage. Nice views. Concerts and markets occur here throughout the year.

Nice area to walk. Great informational signs to learn about the area. Views of the river are great. We walked briskly in January due to 28 degree temperatures!

Cute walk along the river on a very nice day in the fall. Nice historic feel and signs with little tidbits of information. You can get on the trolley here, but it was out of service when we came. Maybe it is a seasonal thing,...More
