It was a little dirtier than I expected but still a great place to visit at least once. It was a bit touristy with all the souvenir shops. So much to see: quaint shops, street musicians, singers, painters and huge ships. So much to do: shopping, candy tasting, and eating at the many restaurants. Took the free water ferry across... More

I disagree with the reviewers who call this street "touristy." To me, touristy is when there's little to do but spend money. I enjoyed the following things on River Street which didn't involve a lot of spending: 1. the view from the balcony of the Vu bar at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (it cost me the price of a drink... More

Great food, but need to watch where you are stepping on the cobbled stone street. Enjoyed the cute specialty shops with all the food samples,

Touristy but cool enough to check out at least once during your visit. We arrived early Sunday evening and whatever street vendors and performers who were there were already packing up but all the restaurants and shops stayed open for at least several more hours. Restaurants ranged from the typical neighborhood bar to classier joints that made an effort to... More

If you are driving down I-95 near Savannah and looking for a break, swing over to River Street. Bars, restaurants, assorted shops, candy stores and the view makes it all the worth while. If you like steamed shrimp, I recommend Bernies...and their seafood chowder is thick enough to stand up your spoon and just as delicious, Afterwards, walk on down... More

At first I did not know where to park and was confused when we turned right on martin luther king jr blvd, it goes down to this train track road and of coarse we were confused as if we were aloud to go down there, but we saw vehicles go down there so we knew we could. I loved how... More

River St. has several places to eat, shop, look around and even take a cruise on a ship on the river. It's a busy section of Savannah and lots to do, but it gets a little more dangerous later at night. We had just gotten off a cruise and was walking to our car when the police were running by... More

This was a fun spot to stroll, shop, sightsee, and nibble. Lots to see, plenty of food options and intersting shops. Don't try to bring you car down here!

Get your fill of trinkets and knick-knacks and enjoy the multitude of food and drink vendors. The setting is beautiful and the mood is always fun. You can spend days exploring all the nooks and crannies.
