River street is part of the Historic District...and worth a stroll or 2 or 3. Lots of pubs, restaurants and shops. Add it to your itinerary.

River Street is a fun walk featuring a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs. When it's as hot as it was recently, they are good places to duck into some A/C and maybe check out a praline sample or a frosty drink at Wet Willie's. Also, there a couple of good rooftop places for a drink and appetizers or lunch... More

I have always lived River Street. The atmosphere, although it was hot (heat index 104), it was lively. Restaurants, shops, and bars line the street, individual ventors selling their goods and a d.j. playing music. Went went on a Saturday, so this may have been the reason for the music. Fun time.

If you are planning a visit to Savannah, River Street is on the must see list. It is just a very nice area to walk down along the river, and there is some very interesting architecture and character to the area both walking along the river and then back one block up from the river (just the other side of...

River Street is gorgeous and I'm giving this 4 stars bc of the beauty of the street and river. I'd rate it lower if I considered the panhandlers and aggressive shop owners so I'm only rating the area. It truly is beautiful. The cargo ships rolling in and the beautiful and historic architecture make for some of the best photo... More

This part of Savannah is packed with tourists. We didn' t have time to walk along the river, so we drove, and that was a sufficient way to see the river area. If you want to shop there then walking is better. We enjoyed the parts of Savannah that were beyond this area.

If you like crowds, this is your scene. It's jam packed. Peel crowd the sidewalks to eat and shop. The warehouses have been made into stores and cafes. Don't miss the incredible history here. There are surely ghosts of pirates, soldiers, and ladies in hoop skirts!

The overall impression of the River Walk area is that it is just a bunch of tourist shops with a bit of history thrown in just to try to tie it into something relevant. We promptly left the River Walk area and headed out on our own historic walking tour of the historic area. Not only was it a more... More

Loved the candy shops and watching the ships go by. A lot of touristy things to buy but a good place overall. Go during the day to see all of the shops.

We stayed at the Hyatt during our trip so we walked, shopped and ate at restaurants up and down River Street. You can just feel the history here. Took the free ferry across the river and watched huge ships go by. An amazing place.
