A boardwalk of sorts, this street is lined with shops and an outdoor marketplace selling souvenirs and artwork. The street is paved with cobblestone, adding some character to this attraction. A quick 30 minute stroll will take you from beginning to end, but there are plenty of unique stores you can spend quite a few minutes exploring, such as the peanut shop and toy store.

You cannot visit Savannah without stopping to walk down the old brick street along the beautiful river. All of the old buildings are filled with great restaurants, and unique shopping. It was a pleasure to visit. I

River Street is one of the main attractions in Savannah. With its cobblestone roads and old vintage buildings, River Street makes you feel as though you've stepped back in time! When you walk down the roads, you get to choose from boutiques, candy shops, restaurants, and even ice cream parlors. In the little park area in the middle of the street, there are even people who will draw portraits of you and play music. It's very lively! As you shop, you get to look to towards the Savannah River and you get to see the ferries, yachts, and cargo ships that pass or park. You can even buy a ticket to go on the ferry and participate in their dinner cruises.
The only problem with River Street, is the constant traffic. Between the people trying to park, the people just driving through, and the tour trollies that go by, traffic is VERY heavy. When you go there, you need to make sure you watch the roads and not take all the traffic into consideration. Don't let the crowds and the cars scare you away and/or ruin your day. The street itself will make up for it.
So, overall, I highly recommend going to River Street. Especially go to the candy shops, where they have so much candy it will make your head spin!

River Street in Savannah, GA is a collection of renovated buildings featuring everything from museums to bars. There is something for everyone. Candy stores where you can watch them make the sweets. Restaurants for both casual and fine dining. A Christmas store, a hat store, tee shirts or classic dress. Weeknights are great for watching the ships head back out to sea. You can even book a cruise on a riverboat! A must-visit place anytime you are in South GA or SC.

River St is fun. It's definitely the touristy area though. We ate dinner then strolled around the shops and went to a couple of bars.
