Loved the stroll down River Street, the passing ships, quaint shops and monuments. Travel all the way to the end so you can see the waving lady. Make sure to find the story behind her!

Spent the day visiting the shops along the street. Great places to shop with a lot of great restaurants. Had lunch at The Shrimp Factory, great food at reasonable prices. Only disappointment was the ability to find a place to park.

I am the type of person that likes a good walk, seeing all the sights, and grabbing little snacks and souvenirs on my way. River street is a bustling and beautiful walk to enjoy any time of the year. All the little shops and eateries are great and there are plenty of places to sit and relax and watch the... More

We walked along River Street early Christmas morning, mostly reading restaurant menus and enjoying the scenery. We admired the huge yacht anchored there, didn't see any tugboats, ore carriers or ferry boats moving around. Oh well. Be advised most restaurants are closed all or part of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so check the Savanna Tourism site for options. All... More

I walked out of the market place to wait for my friends who were buying things to sit on a bench. As I sat there I heard a man arguing with someone on his phone. I lit a cigarette and his attention immediately was on me. He was yelling at me to not smoke. I got up and walked away... More

River Street played an important role in the history of Savannah. It is a party area and it gets going, as the night gets later. If you like to party...party on! If not, make your visit early and move on to other calmer attractions. Many restaurants, good, but not great! Typical tourist area.

We visited on a cold Monday afternoon, perhaps the reason there were very few people. We enjoyed the historical markers and the friendliness of the shopkeepers.

I enjoyed walking along the river and watching the barges. There were also lots of neat shops, restaurants and bars. There were a lot of people that were not paying attention and I had to be very observant. Parking is difficult but there are a few public parking garages. If you do park in a parking garage and plan to... More
