This Street offers different shops and restaurants. But it is a very nice walk along the river during the day. A bit of a tourist trap, but I certainly enjoyed the views

Great place, nice people. Do not recommend this place at night. Police caught someone shoplifting! Some of the smaller shops and street vendors close at sunset, would recommend coming earlier if you want to see that. Loved that you can drink alcohol while walking the street.

By far the best stop I have done in my trips to Savannah. I went in March and it was amazing, just a little cold. Being amazed we decided to come back for Independence day. It was pretty packed due to the fireworks display which caused traffic and individuals to watch from miles away. But it was culturally amazing to... More

My family and I had a great time walking around and shopping til we dropped! There is a variety of stores to meet everyone's expectations and River street has a beautiful view on the River.

We spent the 4th down on River Street. There are so many shops and places to eat, you could spend all day. There was plenty of entertainment as well. I can't imagine there being a better place to see fireworks than the river, it was beautiful. Even if it hadn't been a holiday weekend, river street would definitely have been... More

River street was fun and beautiful! It had everything you could think of there. Parking is a little tight, and the stairs going down are a little steep. The streets are cobblestone so wear sneakers if you can!!! Worth the massive amounts of people and the "palmetto" bugs...aka huge cockroaches :D

We knew this was a tourist trap but walked down to get a view of the river and an adult frozen treat at Wet Willy's. First and foremost I would NOT take children down here. Its nothing but heavy tourist bar scene....lots of drunks. Trash everywhere. Smells like the French Quarter in NOLA (ie stale beer and urine). The panhandlers... More

This is absolutely the prettiest southern city in America. The old town beauty coupled with a modern touch offers a truly inviting experience. Great things to do from riverboat rides to music, and arts festivals you can't to wrong with a visit here. Food is reasonably prices at all restaurants and views while dining are among the best in the... More

It was a busy area, all of the time during our stay. Cobble-stone street lined with shops and bars and restaurants. Plenty of souvenirs for all. Nice pedestrian plaza beside the river. Don't miss the water ferry and riverboat cruises. .
