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

We shopped and went sightseeing. This was a great afternoon. They have a great Harley shop on River Street as well.

The river is beautiful, and the buildings are impressive. My camera was in front of my face for most of the time here. If the non-stop traffic weren't annoying enough, every place we saw was vying for every tourists dollar. Eliminate half the gift shops, encourage more historic preservation focused on the great architecture, and limit vehicular traffic to the... More

Ended my quick return visit to Savannah by visiting River Street. I enjoyed reaching it by using "historic steps" that are awesome in of themselves. The cobblestone streets look in places recreated but original in others. There are several shops and restaurants. I saw an ocean freighter with Panamanian registry come in and it was awesome seeing it go under... More

A breathtaking sight.... especially at night. The cobble stone streets and walls and that make-up so much of the history of River Street is a story all it's own. If you take the Hearse Ghost Tour you will hear tales of love, deception, broken hearts, and a ghost that haunts the docks of River Street.

River street is mainly a place to go shop in little stores and eat at different restaurants. No need in my opinion to go back more than once. We saw a couple of large ships go by because it is located on the river but not much in attractions.

The only thing that was hard for us was the side walks were cracked and uneven to walk. The trolley that goes up and down the street was not working. Has a lot of neat little shops and restaurants to eat.
