According to Visit Detroit, the Detroit International RiverWalk "spans more than three miles, from Rosa Parks Blvd. to the Belle Isle Bridge" and offers plenty of gorgeous views and fun things to do.

The RiverWalk is open every day from 6 am to 10 pm, and there are numerous things to enjoy. You can keep it simple and walk or bike along the riverwalk; there are splash fountains and parks for the kiddos when it gets hot in the summer; there's a carousel for little and big kids alike to enjoy; and there are stunning views of Detroit and Canada.

If you want to see if the number one riverwalk in the whole United States lives up to the hype, just make a trip to Detroit.
