  • We loved walking down River Street. There are many restaurants and shops, things to see, great for people watching and also seeing the huge container ships coming in to dock.

  • Love the atmosphere! River front dining, shopping, and relaxing. Not a big city but big enough to have plenty of fun and there is more than enough to keep your day exciting. Take a boat ride and enjoy the Savannah River. All I can say is get here as soon as you can and stay a few days. You may not want to leave.
  • One of my favorite places of all times! It's neat to watch the huge cargo ships go by along the Savannah River.. Or grab a tasty treat from the local candy shop nearby.. I rather enjoyed it, just a fun place period!
