JBR Walk – One of Dubai’s Top Tourist Attractions

Posted on by Carole Soto

Visit One of the Top Tourist Attractions in Dubai: The Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk.

Dubai is not a place that rolls over when the sun goes down. In many parts of the city it is a time when things are just getting started. One such area is the Jumeirah Beach Residence near the Dubai Marina, known as JBR to local residents, and the Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk is the place to be. This 1.7 km strip with its two levels, the ground level and the plaza level, was opened in 2008 as part of Dubai Properties huge project.

We arrived at 10:00 p.m. on an early April evening and it was full of life, and bustling with activity. The shops were busy and outdoor bistros were filled with people enjoying a late bite. The place was packed, but not in an uncomfortable way. There was plenty of space to move around. We strolled The Walk, taking in its sights and sounds which seemed to convey a distinctive European flare.

The JBR Walk, paved in cobblestone, is a place where young people gather and families have fun, and we definitely got to see the attraction. The road was filled with young drivers showing off their extravagant cars, plenty of Mercedes, a couple Ferrari’s, and a Bentley. We even saw a Hummer stretch-limo.

A Dubai Attraction for all the Family

We saw children playing in the water of several uniquely designed fountains that lined The Walk while their parents enjoyed a refreshing gelato. Security guards patrolled the area on horseback, but they seemed to be more of an attraction than anything else with people taking pictures and asking questions. This is not to say that they weren’t doing their jobs. Their presence was an added comfort, but with or without, the environment felt very relaxed and safe.

As one of the top Dubai tourist attractions, the Jumeirah Beach Residence Walk also hosts such activities as street painting, craft shows, photography displays, as well as recycled art shows and street shows. Nestled between the white sandy coastline and a strip of Dubai hotels, The Walk is conveniently located and easy to find. They are even bringing light rail into the district, which will make it even more accessible. Although, I must warn you, with the current construction of light rail, traffic in the area is a bit congested, especially on Thursday and Friday nights. So it’s best to enjoy a visit on the weekdays to minimize the traffic headache.
