Great way to spend the time while in Savannah; there are plenty of shops to choose from - some good and others just so. But the atmosphere is ebullient and the setting serene. I would rate it as a must do. Would need a good two hours or so to walk the length and back at a leisurely pace.

With so many shops and restaurants, we spent a lot of time here! You could easily spend an hour just leisurely window shopping and watching the river. This is a great place to find a spot to eat, get some souvenirs, take some great photos, or kill a little time.

There is nothing like sitting and watching. It's calming and just what the Dr ordered. I never get tired of looking at the water and the shopping is great. Check out the $20 store and Savannah Bee comp. Or get a lunch at seafood place. Take a free ride on the DOT.

Sure it is very touristy but the views of the river and the big ships make it all worthwhile. My advise go to the river have a drink or two and move away from the river for better dinning options.

River street is a strip of shops and restaurants along the Savannah river. The shops are pretty much touristy, but the restaurants range to quite good. The ambiance, especially on a sunny day, is nice. If you have not been to Savannah it definitely is worth checking out. The origianl cobblestone streets and old buildings are interesting and it is...

The riverwalk is so beautiful here. There are all kinds of neat restaurants, shopping and musicians playing jazz on the boardwalk. The people watching is awesome too. We also watched Fireworks from here and they were awesome!

River Street will take you back in time. Cobblestone streets with a trolley car going back and forth. Beautiful view of the River and Convention Center. Free boat ride from one side of the River to Isle of Hope and back. Quaint shops and restaurants. Enjoyed!

If you like to be in the thick of things, you will love River Street during Labor Day weekend. The variety of vendors and food that was available was great. It was crowded, but not too crowded (you didn't feel like someone was about to snatch your purse) and the people were friendly.

Very cute waterfront area with little shops and restaurants. Highly recommend! TWO TIPS: 1. Watch out for the panhandlers. Although it says "No panhandling" they are everywhere. 2. Choose a hotel within walking distance (we stayed at Holiday Inn Express on Bay street.) Leave your car at the hotel (there's a $20 charge) and walk everywhere - it's all close... More

I am glad I visited once. I was expecting something more historical. it is about a quarter mile long, cobblestone street, with shop after shop of souvenir stores, art galleries, and restaurants. basically if you been in one souvenir shop you've been in them all. the far side of the river, is an ugly industrial area. if you go up...
