“Touristy but worth seeing”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

If you are in Savannah, you have to go to River street. It is full of shops with t-shirts, candy and kitsch but that is part of the vacation experience right?

It really is a beautiful place to walk and if a ship goes by, it may be as close as you ever get to a moving container ship.

Remember, if you enjoy an adult beverage, it is legal to walk anywhere in the historic district with a drink or beer as long as it is in a plastic cup. Every bar and restaurant has "to go" cups, just ask.

“Good but not the only part of Savannah”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

River street is fun and worth a look, but don't neglect going a little further into the city. The prices and variety of food and bars is much better between Congress and Broughton, don't miss it.

“Great walk at Night!”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

After going to visit some forts during the day, we decided to take a stroll through the River St. Even after the sun went down, so much activity. Families, couples, etc. We stopped by candy shops for some salt water taffy and chocolates.. then walked along the river. My husband and I had a great time walking and observing people. We walked around at night and got see see the lights along the river.. it was very romantic.
