There's never a dull moment on River Street, even if you're there for a stroll down the cobblestone street viewing the ships passing by, but the main attraction are the wonderful restaurants, bars and gift/candy shops.

Great little touristy area with shops and restaurants. Neat to watch the big cargo ships come in and out. Be careful walking on the bricks, I tripped more than once.

The river is very pretty, and there are a lot of tourist shops, restaurants, and bars along the river. I enjoyed walking the length of it and taking some nice pictures, however, due to Savannah’s open container laws, there are a LOT of people out who have been and are currently drinking. That’s not a problem for a group of adults, but I personally would not recommend taking children there. Also, the cobblestone street was beautiful, but hurt my knees to walk on.

Our stay was during the 1st Friday of the Month in May 2018. Very nice display of Fire Works. Lots of friendly people gathering with family, friends and their dogs. During the day nice stroll along the river and check out the local vendors. Had a Wonderful Time !!!

Tourist trap for sure, but the shops along the street offer a wide variety of gifts, crafts, artwork, and other items. Lots of t-shirt shops, restaurants, and bars, but certainly a must-visit location if in Savannah.
