We were lucky enough that it was beautiful and sunny day, although a little chilly, when we visited Savannah. River Street is a must do when visiting Savannah - so much history in the cobblestone streets and stairs where pirates once walked! River Street has everything - souvenir shops, plenty of restaurants, shopping, tours etc. We met a very nice... More

If you are a fan of "cheesy" souvenirs, this is your go-to destination. One also has just the most amazing view of the river and the many HUGE cargo ships, stern wheelers and supportive tug boats that roll up and down the waterway. There are many and various dining establishments at river level. For those with "finer" taste, head up... More

Walked along the river looking into all the shops and bars! This is a great place to hang out. The shops are touristy but lots of good stuff! Watching the river traffic is great? They have water taxis and paddle wheel boat tours which look like they would be great fun!

River street is a treat. Great little shops and Bernie's is a fantastic choice when overwhelmed with so-so choices.

We stayed right near the river in February. We strolled along the cobbled road and poked into some of the many tourist shops. The riverboat tours dock here, there are sidewalk artists, etc. of course there are many bars and several restaurants. It's worth your time but a little congested on mild weekend days.

We had been on river street about 10 years ago. We really felt as though the shops and restaurants had changed more into a bar scene. Early 20's hang out. The river was pretty but the interesti unique stores we had remembered were gone.

If you're visiting Savannah, you will want to see River Street. There are tons of trinket shops, restaurants, bars, and places to purchase tours. River Street is made out of ballast stones from ships, so if you're planning on going out at night on River Street, don't wear heels! A lot of the historic steps leading down to River Street...

River Street is just that.....sits right on the river front. It has so much history and delicious food. The beer is Savannah rivals other Micro Brews out there. They are really up and coming. Watch out for the cobblestone it will get your heels. Enjoy!!
