On a river bank, the variety of stores and restaurants are almost overwhelming. We had dinner at Huey's and recommend it.

I enjoyed walking along the riverfront. There were places to sit. The cobblestone is typical of Savannah, and one must be careful walking on it. It is nice to look at the architecture of the buildings. The shops have souvenirs, books, sweets, etc., and the proprietors are very friendly. For those who are interested in the history, it is easy... More

This was our 1st trip to Savannah. Seeing hotel prices on River Street, I was tempted to book a good, well known hotel for a lower rate...after all, we only needed the room to sleep in. Booking a River view room at River Street Inn was a GREAT choice. We were so pleased, we extended our stay at even higher... More

Near River street and contains many wonderful shops and antiques. The shop owners are always friendly and grateful you stopped in. Each shop has unique items to purchase and most of them sell bottled water to keep you hydrated.

This is a nice walk of the old factor's stores and cotton trading buildings. You can walk down the historic brick path and get a great view of the Talmadge Bridge. The old buildings are still there but are filled with touristy bars, restaurants, and shops. You're not going to get too much history here anymore but it is a... More

Factors Walk is a port filled with different shops, Restaurants, Pubs, and bars. It is a very nice walk lined with pebbled stones, hard to walk on but I did feel I was taken back in time. Certainly a must see

I lived in Savannah for several years, and this was one of my favorite places - any day of the week. I return as often as possible, and never miss this. It's beautiful along the river. The shops are interesting, the people are friendly and it just makes for a really nice day.
