    Riverfront shops

    Down on the riverfront you'll find some great little shops and restaurants. The street are all cobblestone so speeding is Not an issue, it is a very slow and bumpy ride. Go park and take a walk around, parking is cheap about 50 cent to $1.00 an hour. Walk along the river and see all the riverboats and shops for blocks.

    Savannah riverfront

    The Savannah Riverfront was in disrepair until the mid 1970s. Its restoration to its old time charm has attracted tourists from all over. When I was there in 1978, my folks and I watched the ships come in at the sunset.

    River Street - visit the many shops and restaurants along river street. You can shop for art, antiques, clothing, food, etc. If you want to go through all of the shops, then plan on spending most of the day!
    Situated along the Savannah River in the middle of the Historic District. The shops are now located in what used to be the old cotton storage warehouses. Cotton was brought to these warehouses for shipment overseas to Europe. The stones that make up the walls and roadway were the stones that the ships took on in Europe for ballast for their return trip to Savannah!

    My mom and I bought a map of savannah, GA. You'd be suprised at how many tiny little streets there are. This place is so amazing. You need a map to find all the hidden hideaways!

    Savannah's old waterfront

    Savannah's old waterfront is picturesque, except for the huge hotel that dominates it. It has plenty of excellent restaurants and bars--a fine place to spend an evening.
