“Scenic Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Plenty to see on River Street. If river watching is what you prefer, you are in the perfect spot. Unusual shops, cool (somewhat dangerous) stairways and many restaurants overlook the Savannah River. There are also the touristy places available.

“Cool Area with a lot of food options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR YOUR BEST "GOING OUT" OUTFIT.

The entire place is made up of uneven cobblestone and steep stairways, so wear comfortable shoes.

There is a lot to see, a ton of shops, beautiful views of the water and a great place to follow your nose for dinner. There are a lot of concierge stops if you want to get a recommendation, but there are also a lot of people looking for your spare change.

I would have liked to see more restaurants with outdoor seating, but it looked like it was mostly the high dollar locations that provided that. We were waiting for date night until the next day, so we were going a little more budget friendly for the night.

“Awesome views of ships passing by on river!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

River Street is located on the "old" Savannah water front, where old warehouses and other establishments have been converted into modern bars, restaurants, and other businesses.Parking was available, but we went on Tuesday during the day. Awesome views of the Savannah river and the huge ships coming up river with goods from across the world make this an excellent spot to relax, and enjoy the scenery!. Several ships from China came past the seating area that we were at, and it was really exciting to watch the huge ships pass by! I also noticed that families with strollers might have difficulty on the coblestone so keep this in mind if you have infants and small children that require a stroller! I would suggest that Families visit during the day hours to avoid some of the crowds and spirited behavior at night. A Must See and Visit on your trip to beautiful Savannah..

“Shopping and sightseeing paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Something for everyone here. Plenty of little shops to poke around in, winding steps, great restaurants. Marketplace is interesting and diverse, lots of fun. Take a break and watch the boats come in while eating, and give yourself time to wander.
