The River Walk area is loaded shops and restaurants. Such a nice area to stroll through only slightly ruined by the pesty people that stop you every few feet to try to sell you a tour. Other than that, loved it. So very nice.

We are extensive travelers but not necessarily extensive tourists. We have lived and worked in many countries and continents. We don't ride trolleys, we avoid long lines, we rarely tour sites based on their popularity. We walk. Sit in parks. Drink coffee. Make picnics. And eat. Historic Savannah is a walker's delight. It can't be much more that one square... More

Loved walking around Savannah's historic district. Plenty of parking lots around town. Charming historic buildings everywhere. Interesting architecture and stories abound. Some beautiful art galleries and good shops. The riverfront area is beautiful. We loved our day and only wished we could have had 2-3 to more deeply explore this area.

Parking is a premium in old town. Metered parking. Area hotels take up most of the spaces for guests at a fee with a sticker. If you get a close enough spot you stay put.

Most of the area is original. Beautiful live oaks covered with Spanish Moss throughout. Bountiful restaurants to satisfy every pallet. Enjoyed the entire riverfront area lined with shops and restaurants. EZ to navigate the historic district with the many on/off trolleys. Savannah is definitely worth a visit. A day on Tybee Island is a bonus.

Savannah is absolutely beautiful and the highlight for me was the Historic District. The numerous squares are magnificent, each with its unique attributes, and they're surrounded by gorgeous homes with great history. A must see!

Walking around this town for 2 full days and visiting 8 museums felt like being in a living museum! I'd recommend this to anyone interested in history, architecture and culture.

We'd visited for a few hours and took a trolley tour some years ago and put the area on a "would like to visit again" list. We stayed two nights this time and thourouly enjoyed our day walking around the historic district in perfect weather. Beautiful shady squares and live oak lined avenues, little traffic and plenty of coffee shops... More
