My mom and I got to Savannah on a Thursday and walked this street and enjoyed our time and all the little shops. On Friday the vibe of the city really changed. We didn't realize you could drink in the streets before our visit. Instead of the families with young children and laid-back adults we saw on Thursday, Friday was... More

With the open carry alcoholic beverage laws I am surprised not to see people enjoying same. It seems that even a some of the T-Shirt shops sold single container beers. I am not sure I could manage a St Paddies day on River Street. My bar crawl had to be well planned and manage so us to see it though... More

Seriously nothing special about river street. The first night we went down there for dinner it actually was kinda scary. The stairs can be dangerous so be careful. They are very steep and I didn't realize until my first step. When going down the stairs you go by some alleys and there were some not friendly looking people in them.... More

We walked along River St after a walking tour with Savannah Dan (highly recommend it too). Nice area right along the river to stroll, shop and eat. Lovely cobblestone areas with old architecture to look at and on the other side, watched a ship come in loaded with shipping containers of goods. Reminded me of some areas in Portsmouth NH/Boston...

We spent a couple hours walking up and down River St., on a recent trip to Savannah. There is much to see and do along the street, which is right on the Savannah River. There are many stairs that you can take to get down to River St. along "Factor's Walk." They are clearly marked with signs that say: "Historic... More

What a nice stroll down cobblestone streets. Lot of unique shops, restaurants and pubs. Only downside is difficulty navigating area if you are older or have disabilities. Stairways can be terrifying for even the nimble. Overall, well done.

Loved walking by the river. Great scenery, fun shopping, & an overall enjoyable experience. Wish the stores stayed open a little longer, but other than that it was wonderful.

Recommend spending a day down by the river. You can book a steamboat trip down the river or just jump on the wee ferry for a free 10 minute trip across the river. If you like a drink you can get a drink at one of the many bars and then just take it along the riverfront with you. Plastic... More

We didn't have a lot of time to spend here but spent about an hour and half enjoying the stores and the music. Buskers on the streets provide some great music as you stroll down the stone streets. Wear comfortable flat shoes. Sampled the candy and bought some souvenirs. Lots of history where ever you go in Savannah.

River Street would be a nice step back in time if it were not for the traffic and rude tourists. The restaurants are excellent and you can find some nice, but overpriced. gifts for friends and family. It is impressive to sit and watch the river traffic, especially the ocean going ships making their way to and from port. It... More
