There are plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops on River Street. Our favorite was watching the BIG ships come down the river. There was plenty of shaded areas to sit and watch the ships.

It was very hot, so we did not spend much time there, but that's not the fault of the establishments. Delicious candy, and we saw a big ship off loading beneath the soaring bridge. When we return, we'll get a hotel on Bay St. so we can walk to the restaurants.

We read all of the plaques and stopped at the candy shops and restaurants. It was very interesting to walk the riverfront and learn about the history of the Port of Savannah. Great for families and couples alike.

Don't drive down this road!! It is very bumpy, parking slim. I would say it is more appropriate for adults. There are a few places like the candy shop, but there are several bars. Beautiful views, but mostly crowded with tourists and tour groups/sales. If you are a family traveling with young kids, it's best to let them stretch their... More

Visited Savannah with my partner for a short weekend getaway from Atlanta. Explored the Historic District a bit during the day, but River Street was definitely my favourite part. So nice and relaxing to walk along the riverfront, watching the boats, enjoying the breeze. Great to watch the sunset and enjoy an icecream from one of the candy shops.

Other than parking it was a good place to visit with many shops and eateries. My favorite place was the CANDY FACTORY and my family members bought lots of pralines, and I....chocolate fudge. We had great seafood lunch with lots of Delicious Catfish, sweet potato fries, coleslaw and hushpuppies. Authentic southern food!! The merchants were very friendly. Visited TYBEE ISLAND... More

Ate on the River Street with my husband and had a very romantic dinner together. It was well worth the visit and highly recommend picking one of the many places to eat and have a drink.

Enjoy a walk along this old cobble stone roadway. You will enjoy the Savannah River on one side and maybe even see a ship come by. On the opposite side, you will find many shops and restaurants in very old historic buildings. There might be a lady making items made with sweet grass. Be very careful walking up and down... More
