Street musicians, shops, restaurants, paddle wheelers and pedestrians share this interesting avenue.

We were directed here as a place to eat. Yes, there were lots of restaurants but most looked filthy with the staff smoking outside. I really wish we had stayed for dinner further into the historic district but they probably were just as overpriced.

This was my first visit to Savannah, it was a lot of fun, everyone was so nice as they danced to the music in the square and walked the stores and resturants! Truly a Beautiful place!

The steps down to the river front were difficult to maneuver during a dark, rainy evening but worth the trip. I could imagine all the people in days past going up & down in the big hoop skirts that were fashionable at the time. So many interesting restaurants & little shops to browse. The open air park & Market Place... More

River Street was way too touristy! The only things we thought worthwhile were the candy shops and the peanut shop. It is a shame to waste time here when the rest of the historic district is so scenic and charming.

Yes, there are parts that feel very tourist-y (lots of shops with cheap T-shirts, for example), but there are also some very good restaurants and unique shops (some of the boutiques have some very fun/unusual clothing, and pretty reasonably priced). It's always fun to see the big ships as they come through. Be careful on the steps down to the... More

Yes, the funky/tacky shops are here; but they are fun to visit. The food is very good (don't judge the cafe by the outer appearance...or the inner appearance, haha). Some of the shops have very reasonable buys (especially in the off season), like a very nice purse for $36 or a nice necklace for $24. You MUST go to the... More

The view on river street was awesome. Got to see some awesome ships and a huge cargo carrier. The shops on river street were very disappointing. They were your typical running of the mill souvenir shops. Nothing special. Would have much rather been unique boutique shops.
