If I lived here I would walk this everyday. Dog walkers, strollers, joggers all sharing this walkway next to the beautiful Manatee River.

It is a neat walk along the Manatee river and great way to experience the locals. It is about 1.5 miles, lots of art displayed, splash pad and skate park. You can walk or find a cool spot to hang out and admire the view.

Riverwalk is a 24 hour treat, well-lit at night. Of course, the sidewalk attractions and views are much better by day.
