Stellar shopping and beautiful views tempt visitors to linger at Jacksonville's most popular downtown destination.. The Experience Southbank Riverwalk is a 1.2-mile stretch of shops, restaurants, hotels and theaters that run along St. John's River. In addition to Jacksonville's best shopping and dining, the Riverwalk also provides beautiful vistas of downtown.
Features The Riverwalk's focal point is Friendship Fountain, a series of seven sprayers that shoot water 120 feet into the sky. Boat taxis and a river ferry are available for pleasure and transportation. To check out the shops and restaurants at North Bank, walk across the scenic Main Street Bridge (a drawbridge, by the way).
