Walking Blues - Along the St Johns River


Walking Blues

Riverwalk Downtown Jacksonville, Florida




This is a view from one of our favorite places to walk. Jacksonville has a beautiful walkway on both the north and south banks of the St Johns River. A perfect place to see blue skies and water and to enjoy the Florida sunshine.

The St Johns River is the longest river in Florida and one of the few rivers in the United States that flow north. The river begins its lazy travels in the marshes of Brevard County and slowly flows 310 miles north to mix in with the Atlantic Ocean at Mayport in Duval County. The St Johns river is a focal point of downtown and one reason we're called the 'River City'. Believe me you can't go anywhere in this town without crossing a bridge!

You can cross the St Johns River by walking over the Main Street Bridge (pictured here) or the St Elmo Acosta Bridge. You'll have beautiful views of the river and the city from either bridge, But if it's blue you're after take the Main Street bridge.
