Downtown Riverfront/Jacksonville Landing
Jacksonville’s riverwalks are among the finest and most scenic in the nation. Lining the north and south banks of the St. Johns River, the riverwalks can be accessed by water taxi and bridges. Bicycling, jogging, rollerblading, skateboarding, and walking are common pastimes enjoyed along the riverfront.
Popular with fishermen and spectators alike, surrounding beaches like Jacksonville Beach, Fernandina Beach, St. Augustine Beach, and Ponte Vedra Beach Pier give visitors a remarkable view of the coast and hours of oceanfront fun.
