Historic River Street reviews
Food, folly, fun! Great street for seeing a whole variety of things in one spot! We ate at Tippy’s and enjoyed some lemon sorbet at the Sweet Shop!! more »
Have loved this place since I was a child. Now I'm a bit older and still love it. It is my home. Born here proud to be from here. Never a shortage of things to do or see.
An amazing place for a walk and some beer. The place has really good shops that you’d want to check out. Do visit this during night as well. This street is a must visit if you’re planning to visit Savannah.
