Not much in the way of original Savannah. The only charming part is the cobblestone street. The shops are tourist traps full of cheap wares and unoriginal items...I suppose the only time I will care to return is St. Patty's Day.

River Street is fun to hang out and "people watch", but most of the shops are so touristy. Your best bet is to try some of the shops and galleries on the upper section. There are some nice art pieces by local artists.

When it's crowded it's kind of hard to get around, but you can't deny this is a must stop...move at your own... pace kinda activity. You'll enjoy the shops and the artist up and down the river.

while there are lots of people, there are some great restaurants & pubs that are fun to visit. you can carry your drink with you as you stroll down the street. you should visit here in the evening when it is cooler!
