Classic visitor destination on Historic Savannah riverfront. Redeveloped in the 70s/80s, the thriving pedestrian scene has shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, some attractions & more. The X- or decorative-ends of Earthquake rods can be seen on some of the historic buildings - added to stabilize structures after the 1886 Charleston quake just up the coast. You may also see a huge container ship pass by on its way to one of the busiest ports in the US. Much of the street is paved with historic cobblestones that once served as ballast in sailing ships, so pay attention so you don’t twist an ankle. There is car traffic down the cobblestones too. Limited public parking in River St. public lots, but you might luck up.
