We visited in the early afternoon as our last stop for our trolley tour (we got off and walked it). This was our favorite part of the historic downtown area. It seemed like we were walking down a street in Europe, and decent bars and restaurants and tourist shops. Great candy store too where we had delicious samples of pralines.... More

We had a good time stopping in all the little shops...kinda expensive novelties. We did a riverboat cruise & had a good time. We walked to the anchor park & the boys were in awe of the sizes. Sitting enjoying the view was pleasant for the short time the boys would sit still ;) Not a kid thing.

My husband and I enjoyed the stroll up River Street. After being in the car for several hours, it was nice to get out and walk. We liked looking at the old brick streets and the architecture of the buildings. Many cargo ships were going up the river, so it was nice watching them as well. The only things to... More

This is a typical shop til you drop area, but it is a pretty walk along the Savannah River with its huge ocean liners floating right beside you. Street entertainers are a treat, some extremely talented. An interesting war memorial and the old architecture makes it a nice way to spend some time while you're in town.

This was a fun stop. Most stores were very "touristy" but we did encounter some gems. Great bars where we tried some new beers

Nice in the evening to stroll along the riverfront but we thought it would be a bit more family friendly instead it was full of bars and a few souvenir shops. hey should convert it to a Williamsburg type attraction and make it more historical and informative instead. Only thing historical about it are the buildings and cobblestone.

We went to the River Walk every evening to grab an ice cream cone, do a little shopping, or just sit and watch the river boats going up and down the river. Very exciting and yet very calming! We loved it!

If you go to Savannah, you have to take a walk down River Street. There are lots of restaurants, bars, hotels and shops. Nice views!

Heat and humidity. Thousands of tourists. T-shirt and hat shops. Bad to mediocre restaurants. Homeless people. We actually had to dodge one drunk throwing up. People trying to sell you junk on the street. The view to the other side of the river is not very pretty. Did I mention the heat and humidity and all the tourists.
