In many ways this is the heart of the Savannah historic district. With cobblestone streets, iron bridges, and revamped old buildings mostly associated with shipping and the cotton industry in its heyday - the port was once the life blood of the city. It still is a major visual focal point for watching ships, browsing shops, having a cocktail, and it has some great restaurants as well. Although you see a bigger proliferation of t-shirt shops and touristy paces each year, it still has not given in to becoming a pure tourist trap walkway (aka Bourbon street, Nashville 2nd Ave, Gatlinburg, etc). Lots of cool places to stay - like RiverView Inn, and great places for drinks (Tubby s) or Cajun (Huey's). Boars Head is another good one. With the fairly recent expansion of City Market and right side of MLK, you can now detect the competition for the tourist dollars. On NYE there was band-stage on Factors and two on Market Street. I say enjoy them all and the squares, wonderful excuse to walk off those cocktails and meals.
