  • taking a stroll on this street was magical. Cannot wait to visit again. Great food, If you can find a quiet spot I suggest sitting and taking it all in.

  • Our first time visiting Savannah and our first time strolling Historic River Street was in the evening. It was quiet, beautiful, very safe and we enjoyed the occasional street musician entertaining...

  • The street is right along the river. You get to see huge container ships going by. There are numerous places to eat and some tourist shops. It’s really nice for a walk.

  • Love the atmosphere!! Love the food always!! Love the drinks! I love to walk up and down the cobble stone streets and along the water's edge. The shopping is always fun and the shops are great. Sometimes things are a little higher priced than they should be, but if you're there for the fun and experience then it's really a special place to visit. Sit a watch the ships coming in and out is eye opening!! Makes you appreciate the things you buy everyday that makes your world turn! Visit, enjoy, bring money, bring happy faces and leave with lifetime memories.
  • We had a great morning in Savannah as we love coming here every chance we can get! Beautiful scenery while walking down the river walk! Don’t forget to take the free ferry that gives you a ride across the river! Such a great time!
  • The atmosphere 👌 & place is beautiful!! So much history, music & culture. Definitely one for the books! A must on your bucket list!! We didn't get to do the trolley tour, next time. But the riverside walk was great!
  • Fun spot to explore on a warm day! Lovely river view, great spots to drink (or buy drinks and walk around with them!!), cute shops and vendors, benches to sit back and watch the boats pass through, nice walking area. I definitely recommend starting a hot day here at Wet Willie’s for a drink, and eventually make your way to the Warehouse for live music & $4 fries.
  • Excellent river walk, bars, restaurants. Lots of parking along the water and super close to downtown, historical district and sights. Jump off the old Town trolley for easy access if you don't want to drive and park.
