RAP Debuts Free Podcast Walking Tour of Historic Riverside

City’s first MP3-based walking tour puts history in the palm of your hand

Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP) has released an innovative video podcast walking tour to celebrate Riverside Avondale’s recent designation as one of the American Planning Association’s Ten Great Neighborhoods for 2010. The free, self-guided multimedia tour begins at RAP’s popular Riverside Arts Market (RAM) and concludes in the heart of “new” 5 Points. It allows tour-goers to explore a small slice of historic Riverside and experience first-hand what makes the neighborhood such a wonderful place to live, work and visit. Downloadable tours are a growing trend worldwide, but RAP’s “sound-seeing tour” is a first for Jacksonville.
