Fun to walk River Street, stop in the many shops or just sit and watch people. It's even more interesting on the first Friday of each month to see the fireworks or the many activities that go on during that weekend throughout the year.

Riverfront is a great place to visit - we spent a whole day here. Lots to see and do. The stores are in Historic buildings and everything is so UNIQUE! We loved walking in this part of the city!

Lots to see and good places to eat. It's fun just to sit on a bench and watch the river and it's traffic.

If you want a variety of eateries and do a little souvenir shopping, this is the place. People are friendly and you may be treated to an enormous cargo ship coming.

Just a beautiful walk along the river to take in restaurants, pubs, and shops. Love the stone street and the friendly customer service. Savannah just gets how to treat visitors!

On one visit, here there were some role-playing characters mingling with the crowd and artists displaying their work. Another time, there was a DJ .Great place to tour but may be a... More

We walked and browsed some of the shops and buildings after taking a river cruise. The road is paved with the former ballast from the ships and one can sense what hard work it was to bring the cotton bales down to the wharves.
