“Great place to walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

The river walk was a great place to walk just to see some of Chicago and relax. Didn't get a chance to do much there, but it's right downtown (the part I walked on at least) and was a nice way to get between places. There are various restaurants there, and even a kayak rental spot. It was a nice place for a walk between meetings, and I enjoyed it a lot.

“Great way to exercise and see the sites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We hit the Riverwalk a couple of times a day just to exercise and people watch. Beautiful architecture along the way, bridges, and neat shops and restaurants.

“Morning Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed the Chicago Riverwalk tremendously and hope it doesn't rain this afternoon, so I can go back. Peaceful, relaxing route! Instead of going to Navy Pier, I continued to the marina! I surely got my exercise. The views and the gardens are amazing. The city employees were starting their pick up of garbage. Everything seemed so well-kept and maintained. Great experience!

“Inner City Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

While the Riverwalk was not a destination for us, it turned out to be a welcome treat on the middle of the city. We did several things in the middle of the city, and it was nice to take a break from traffic to walk along the river, enjoy the gardens, and stop for a cool drink. The city of Chicago should be commended - glad to see they are working to extend it!

“Beautiful Riverside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Its a beautiful Riverside. A lot of small shops and boats passing by in the river. Very fresh in a hot summer day. Good place to rest between sight seings
