Talk a stroll

It was neat to see and walk along. Very touristy seeming, but really liked the Savannah Bee Company Shop. Had some good spots to eat and really nice to sit along the water.

There are fireworks on the first Friday of every month, and be sure to visit the art fair vendors on First Saturdays of months in the warm season (I think April - October). There are lots of events in Savannah (especially in April and October -cool but not cold weather). There is almost always some event / fair for any... More

There was only the parking issue. I cannot walk long distances without my cane or walker so parking is so important to me. If I can't find a handicap parking space I just leave.

River street is pretty well known for bars, eateries, and a good time. It is fun to bar hop and have a good night out on the town. During the day, there are several shops to purchase everything from food to clothing to gourmet goods, tobacco, etc. It is worth the walk to check out and experience River Street.

A street full of atmosphere and bustling with people, pubs and restaurants. Even if you have no intention of using any of what is on offer, it's well worth a stroll.

We stayed right on River Street & we happy we did. The main tourist area for restaurants & shopping & pubs. You can catch a tour from there also & watch all the huge ships coming & going on the river. This is one of the biggest shipping areas in the world.

We stayed on the river in a room with a balcony that overlooked River Street. We also walked through the shops and enjoyed the passing huge ocean going vessels in the river.
