Great place to wander and have fun! Cobble stone streets keep the old history feel, along side the centuries old buildings that house modern day eateries, shops, and entertainment venues. Great place to hang out and relax, shop, and have fun. Wear appropriate shoes...no heels ladies!! Take a stroll on a nice night and stop in anywhere you desire. It... More

What a great place! Be sure to take an elevator down to the lower level. It is near the Hyatt Hotel. There is a visitor center with bathrooms just after you exit the elevator.Walk along the river and stop at the candy shops for yummy free samples of pralines. After walking to the Waving Girl Statue, take the free ferry... More

Lots of good food, interesting shops, and friendly people. Old cobblestone streets were awesome, as were the historic buildings.

Take one of the trolleys to Savannah River Street as there is no parking in easy walking distance. Lots of cool shops, good eats and plenty to see. We really liked watching the ships come up the river into port. Small Harley Davidson clothing store was fun along with a bunch of all kinds of little neat stores and snack... More

I was in awe the first time I walked down to River St. The historical steps (with the warning sign), the cobble stone streets, the old buildings and there's the river! You have to see it once. But my gosh the people!! Too many people. Too many bars and bad tourist trap restaurants. To many shops with junk. With 2... More

Not much to see here that you haven't seen a thousand times in tourist streets from San Francisco to Boston. Lots of restaurants, a couple of galleries, some t-shirt shops, candy store. See it once for a half hour and then you can concentrate on more interesting aspects of the town. Be prepared for the very steep stairs if you're... More

A must visit when you are in Savannah. Good restaurants, shops galore and a fine candy shop at River Street Sweets. Pricey but worth it. Pralines to die for, an over used phrase but this time it's true!

If you are in Savannah you gotta go to River Street at least once. It is usualy crowded and filled with tourist, but the atmosphere is fun. There are tons of bars, shops and restaurants offering several dining options. The view of the bridge is wonderful and it's nice to sit and watch the ships and boats pass. There are... More
