There are lots of little shops and plenty of places to eat along this stretch of the Savannah river. I say it's just average because, as with any place like this, it's very touristy! One can only walk into so many t-shirt places. That being...More

River Street is always fun to walk along...yes, it's super touristy, but you are walking along the Savannah River. There are a number of good restaurants along the river (rspecially The Cotton Exchange).

Visiting River Street is a must do while in Savannah! The old architecture of the buildings, stairs, and walkways is beautiful. There are many shops and restaurants with spectacular views of the river and some outdoor cafes and bars with balconies to people watch as...More

Loved the authentic old-fashioned feal of the street, enough so as to return a second time during our short 4-day trip here.

River Street is a must if you are in Savannah. Take a walk and see street musicians, boats, the "Waving Lady," and perhaps even a large cargo ship passing underneath the bridge. The bridge is picturesque during the day or at night. Numerous photo opportunities!...More

Since your parents are elderly, like mine, a better restaurant setting would be better...perhaps Joe's Crab Shack. Yes, it's a franchise but it is on the water and you can walk and shop while they sit and wait for you... More

You can park right on River Street. $2 per hour. Free after 8 pm and on Sundays. Parked there last Fri Night no problem. But beware River Street is all cobblestones.
