The Tampa Riverwalk has really taken downtown Tampa to new heights. In fact it was named the No. 7 best Riverwalk in the US (behind such greats as Breckenridge, San Antonio and Chicago).
We love to bring our bikes downtown and ride along the Riverwalk. You can grab a bite to eat at Armature Works then hit the sidewalk along the river. Some of our favorite stops are the art museum and the Florida Aquarium. What are you favorite stops along the Riverwalk?
Making the downtown area walkable, the Tampa Riverwalk connects downtown Tampa’s vibrant and growing entertainment scene with a walkable path along the Hillsborough River. This 2.6-mile walkway runs along the Hillsborough River, taking visitors from the Heights Market at Armature Works, through Curtis Hixon Park to Sparkman Wharf.
The pedestrian path links parks (WaterWorks, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, MacDill Park, Cotonchobee Ft Brooke Park), entertainment venues (The Florida Aquarium, the Tampa Bay History Center, Amalie Arena, FL Museum of Photographic Arts, Glazer Children’s Museum, Tampa Museum of Art) as well as the Convention Center and Stratz Center for the Performing Art.
There are also a few places to grab a bite to eat (Armature Works, Sparkman Wharf, American Social, Columbia Café, Remedy, Sail Plaza and Ulele).
