River Street is home to lots of shops, bars, restaurants and open spaces with benches for you to sit on and watch the ships go by. There is also a small visitor centre there. We went there on a Saturday afternoon and the place was busy with tourists, street artists, a few market stalls by the river and some live... More

The river itself was fun to watch; some areas of seating along the river path; ferry from the other side of the river was free and ran every 20 minutes; enjoyed all the history and historical buildings; lots of specialty shops, local artist galleries, etc. on the second (or higher) floors...

This place is fun! Quite a few shops to occupy your time. Be sure to stop by the candy shops to get your praline, pecan cluster, taffy, english toffee, and caramel apple fix. There is ALOT to sample. Kick back with nice brew or sips some coffee. The merchants are hospitable.

If you are looking for a lot of stuff crammed into one area then this is the place for you. It has a lot to offer I am sure but it is not what my husband and I like. We also do not like outlet malls.

A must to do when visiting Savannah. Grab a drink at the beginning of your walk and take it with you. Many restaurants, bars and stores to visit. Stop at the candy stores and get your sample of the famous pecan praline?

River street is nice but is the typical tourist stop. Many many restaurants to choose from in the area. If you want authentic Greek go to Olympia. Check out the village craftsman which has local artisans.

If you enjoy lots of people of every age, colorful displays, street music, shopping, unique take home purchases...visit the river district. You can even take a boat ride. It is a happy visit, a fun place to be an somehow, you can visit it. Parking is very poor in this area. Hence, take a cab, walk there or take the... More

Array of restaurants, candy stores and shops in an old cobblestone historic setting. This is a charming part of town.
