Take me to the Riverwalk

"...the Tampa Riverwalk, a continuous pedestrian walkway extending from the Channelside area to Tampa Heights along the east side of the Hillsborough River...will incorporate pedestrian amenities, art and interpretive elements, retail and restaurant uses, parks and open space, and other urban amenities"

The Tampa Riverwalk is something that's been in the planning stages, off and on, since the 1970s. Former mayor Pam Iorio actually got it done and the project will likely been seen as her legacy to the city. It really is quite nice and it looks like this...
Really quite nice!

However, if you try to get there from the Tampa Convention Center, these signs are there to "help" you find it...
Not as nice.
Good ol' downtown Tampa; Always this close to almost having their shit together
