Think it would be lovely in the summer when it is very hot! We only walked a small part of it - it looked pretty extensive.

This is a great walk to take after a heavy meal or to stretch your legs. Not very long but very pleasant with plenty of places to sit and take in the view.

Lived here most of my life. Took the tour a few years ago and it was really good. Lots of history that I did not know and a good price too. If your just visiting RVA and the tour is running I would strongly suggest...More

Had an enjoyable few hours wondering down the canal walk and taking pedestrian bridges over the rather impressive river

Really enjoyed the canal walk, located not far from the downtown area. Canal walk is near the James River, restaurants, and bars, and based on the construction, looks like it's located in a popular area of the city. If you're doing this walk, try walking...More

We took a walk along the canal which was close to the Omni Hotel where we stayed. It's a beautiful area with many new apartment buildings, a broad canal walkway and no vehicular traffic. Delightful1

Very nice interesting walk along the canal with good views. As long or as short as you like. It never gets boring.

What a great idea to have a canal walk through the River City, RVA. While not quite to the level of San Antonio's riverwalk and definitely not quite up to Oklahoma City's expansive and loaded river/canal area, the Canal Walk in Richmond has really done...More

I love walking along the canal walk. There are little bits of history tucked into the walk when you read the signs and the steel plate disks on the sidewalks. The bridge that crosses the river even has quotes on it that are very unique...More

If you love history and enjoy a nice walk, it would be a shame if you can't spend a few minutes looking at this lovely historic urban space. Framed by the old rail lines and the new flood walls, the architecture alone makes it worth...More
