There are plenty of shops to keep you busy here. The Savannah Candy Kitchen got most of my attention(and money.) We went at night, rode the free "Ferry" across the river and back. Then had dinner and spent a few hours browsing through the tourist items. The buildings themselves are worth seeing this area.

as stated in an earlier review there are rosemakers everywhere but as someone who has lived there and worked there and toured around the city and is knowledgable about the city I recommend you take a look at who is making the roses ...in all honesty if you are going to buy roses from someone on the river I recommend...

Most cities I have been to, extra care is taken to keep any waterfront area clean and respectable. Not so in Savannah, sadly. All you will find in Riverfront Plaza is cheap wares stores (as a tourist, I'm supposed to want this garbage?) and loud, cheap bars ($2 shots advertised loudly out front- wahoo). As I am no longer 21... More

The Riverfront Plaza in Savannah Georgia is a great place to walk around and look at the shops, check out the pubs and restaurants.

Let me be clear, the Riverfront is NOT a bad place to be. I'm referring to the historical buildings that house all of restaurants, bars, gift shops, chocolate shops, etc., etc. It is extremely Kid Friendly, with all kinds of things to keep their interest. One of the first things you'll notice, as you drive down the "ramp" to River... More

Tourist trap, all the junk shops , junk from China , panhandlers, and bums you would never like to see, if you like that kind of thing go for it, WWII memorial ship traffic, and restaurants .

Walked along the riverfront on a pleasant spring night, ended up in Ellis Square by the Marketplace. Enjoyed sitting on a bench and people watching for a while.

Because of the abundance of cheap tourist junk in the first building, we didn't even bother with the second building. We would prefer more local crafts. The center open air area for food looked empty and closed. Very sad.
