My wife and I spent much more of our time in Savannah in the parks, squares and museums around town than we ever did on River Street. River Street is the one place in an otherwise gorgeous town that screams tourist trap. You should check it out but realize that as opposed to the Olde Pink House, you're going to be getting Bernie's Famous Oysters.

River Street is 8/10th of a mile from our property. An easy leisurely walk (20 mins). On River Street you will want to walk around to see the sites, Artist and lively activity. There a many restaurants on river street but only a few that we recommend. Since River street is a tourist destination (aka Tourist Trap) the restaurants tend to be not up to our standards. Our Favorites are, Vic's on the River, Boars Head, River House Seafood (Food excellent, Service mediocre) See our other recommendations for the Best Restaurants in the Historic District.
Finally you must have a cocktail at Rocks on the Roof at the Bohemian Hotel, Great place to view the River. (Again food is average at best)

Although this area is touristy, it is a beautiful place for a walk along the river with unique and memorable shops.

Aptly named because it's parallel to the river (it's literally shops on one side of a narrow, single car street, and docks on the other), River Street is a quaint collection of shops bearing old-time candy, beer, honey, nuts, and oysters. For a rainy day, there's a little photo studio where you can don colonial attire. On a sunny day, have brunch atop The Bohemian and watch the boats sail by. The candy shops are probably the busiest locales here, but who can resist the smell of fresh toffee and the sight of various food items being hand-dipped in chocolate?

Just in front of Savannah River this street is full of shops built inside the old bricks buildings, which once where used for cotton Storage. There are also bars and clubs. It is usually quite animated and surely a must see in town.
