This was our first time to Savannah and this was our "must see". We ate at several restaurants here during our stay. Many of them offer outside seating to take in the views, which are amazing all along the plaza. We loved to watch the river traffic here. Lots of interesting shops along the way. Great place for photos. We... More

Much different to experience the historic riverfront by climbing the rough hewn stone steps and cobblestone streets and walking along in front of the riverboat and renovated warehouses.

My wife and I had a great time on Superbowl Sunday going from bar to bar watching the game. We had great food, we had a few drinks, and I even bought a new hat at the Mad Hatter. In short, we had a great evening and look forward to a return trip.

Long walk of interesting shops. No need to go into every one, just the ones you want. You'll probably need to rest for the next three days, but it's a fun place to watch the water, catch a good meal, and enjoy the various people moving around.....

We visited on January 14 around 4 pm. Our family of five - kids 13, 9 and 5 - made it down the very steep stairs to access the Riverfront. Once down there, it was quite pretty, even though there's a lot of industrial area around it. It's quaint, although watch your step as the streets are cobblestone. There's lots... More

The Riverfront is nicely restored and gives a good sense of the history of Savannah. I loved seeing the riverboats and all the other sights. A great spot for photos, too. We didn't eat at the waterfront, but there seemed to be a good selection of restaurants, as well as souvenir shops. It's a great walk.
