We were fortunate to have beautiful fall weather, so the walk was very pleasant and lots to see-- ducks on the river, covered bridge, park. Just a nice stroll around town. Well kept grounds throughout

Very neat place to visit. The downtown area has lots of shops and places to eat as well as the Riverwalk which was a beautiful view.

When visiting family in Naperville, we always find time to walk along the Riverwalk. Truly a beautiful, well-planned enhancement to a lovely town. I highly recommend that you discover the Riverwalk, then have lunch or dinner at one of the many great restaurants downtown.

Real well done place; we liked the small amphitheater and the sidewalk just along the river. Not too far from dozens of places to go, either.

What a place... lots of shops from chain to unique shops to upscale shops. Lots of places to eat. The river park and open spaces and parks are just beautiful

Walked the riverwalk multiple times during our visit and highly recommend it. Easy to see how the citizens of Naperville are proud of what their city offers. If I lived in the Chicago area I don't know how you could do better than Naperville.

Nice place to take take a stroll. Canoeing and paddle boats in summer. Middle of downtown Naperville.

A fun way to explore a city near by, or on vacation. They are in may states, just check the website for an adventure that is a cross between a scavenger hunt and the amazing race! Answer questions to get your next clue! Loved it
