This area doesn't require a lot of time. Particularly for younger families. The area is touristy and the bar scene abounds. You CAN feel history in the making. The cotton factory, old historical steps "use at your own risk", the river and port. The day life and night life are hopping in this area. Tourist shops are as any other... More

There is a lot of history on the street. Quite a few nice shops and of course there were quite a few touristy shops. Many choices of food and beverage. It takes quite some time to see all of it, if you shop or browse. Very worthwhile vacation day.

We visited River Street with friends in the early evening. It is a place which will appeal to people who are interested in souvenirs. It was a nice place to walk as our day was ending in Savannah. There is a large selection of restaurants and bars, a few art galleries and other small shops. Take time to enjoy the... More

We spent the day here checking out all the shops (and found a number of items to purchase, of course) and then went back for drinks on Rocks on the River rooftop bar. Beautiful to look out over the river with all the lights lit up and watch the occasional ship come through. Definitely make time to leisurely explore this... More

It's full of insects and lower-end souvenir shops. We liked the monuments and the view of the river. The sidewalk is too narrow in many spots. We would not know if any of the restaurants are any good because we could not stand there long enough to check the menus. With a little bit of effort it could really be... More

While walking down the street you could feel the presence of history, you can just imagine what it must have been like a hundred years ago. If this street does not excite you, you need to pay the Undertaker because you are already gone.

Walk and shop the many little shops along the river. We saw the Nina and pinta ships that were docked. Enjoy the river traffic and set sail on one of the paddle boats.refresh with a drink or sweet treat or meal in one of of many foods venues.

A milder version of the New Orleans experience + very scenic view of river and it's large container ship traffic. It has everything from candy shops to people watching and live music. Lots of drinking of course

River Street was the worst part of Savannah- not because of the beautiful views, but all the Chotzski shops. The cobble stones street force you to slow down and do a bit of wonderful people watching, but the street itself and the shops offer little parking and a selection of retain only high school sophomores could appreciate.

River street is a must-see, but doesn't merit a long visit. I enjoyed the views of the river, and when I wanted to buy a fridge magnet to remember my Savannah trip by, I visited one of the souvenir shops on River Street. I heard good things about some of the restaurants here, but did not dine here. I found... More
