We were only in Savannah for a day, so had limited time for this area. No time for the boat ride :( but did have enough time for a wander around the shops. Mainly souvineer shops but the candy shops deserve 5 stars alone - my children loved watching taffy and pralines being made (and tasting them!). Nice watching the... More

An over-rated place with touristy shops selling mostly low-end brick-a-brack 'stuff' and seemingly matching restaurants. We spent a couple of hours here including lunch. Lot's of friendly people here, but that's typical of greater Savannah. Next.

We loved The River Front Markets and Restaurants, Historic Downtown Tours and River Boat Diner Cruise.

River street was a place I wanted to be dropped off at and left. It cannot be appreciated, in my opinion, on a trolley. The stores, the cobble streets, even the free ferry, all adds to the beauty of Savannah and River Street. I fell in love with it all and will be moving permanently soon.

My son and I made multiple trips here over the course of the 2 weeks we visited this past June and July. There's plenty of restaurants to dine in, bars to unwind at, and shops to browse or buy a gift for someone. This cobble-stoned street on the Savannah River is sure to lure in just about any tourist. It... More

River Street was quite an interesting place to see. Many shops and eaterys are here. River street itself is a narrow cobblestone with trolley tracks that goes for quite a distance.Almost anything you want to sample is available here. You can smell the candy being made at the Sweets Shop or taste their gelato ice cream. Many types of food... More

Thinking that there was a nightlife on river, we headed there. Not much going on except homeless people and beggars. During the day it is open to souvenir stores and a great candy store.

Most of the shops on River Street are not handicap accessible. There were a few shops that we would have loved to go into, however, we were not able due to them being upstairs and no way of getting to them. Also the parking is horrible. It would be more beneficial for longer times available to park, and very few... More

We stopped on River Street just to go to the River Street Sweets shop. That alone is worth going for. You can smell the pralines being made on the premises, from blocks away. It's a very large sweet shop. You can get ice cream, multitude of candy apples, as well as just about any kind of candy you're looking for.... More

I am not a big shopper, nor am I looking for expensive restaurants, so, while the walking experience is fun, and people watching can be intriguing, this isn't my sort of attraction. I'd rather look at the REAL Savannah and its history.
