Savannah River Street Tours

star-3.5
91 Reviews
Savannah River Street
It is virtually impossible for Savannah visitors to miss River Street. A broad waterfront promenade lined with shopping, dining, and entertainment venues, River Street is one of the main arteries of the historic city. The street also features a pedestrian-only path, perfect for leisurely strolls with unbeatable Savannah River views.

The Basics
The best way to experience River Street is by foot, letting you easily and leisurely stop into its many inviting shops, bars, and restaurants. Some guided walking tours of Savannah’s historic district include River Street on their route, providing insight into the street’s history as a cotton warehouse district and highlighting other historic landmarks, such as the Waving Girl statue. Additionally look for River Street on the itinerary of Savannah ghost tours, which reveal spookier aspects of the street’s history, or on hop-on hop-off trolley tours, which let you stay on the thoroughfare as long as you’d like before continuing through downtown Savannah. For the most spectacular views, book a helicopter tour that flies over the Savannah River, River Street, and more.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Plan to spend up to a few hours on River Street.
  • Explore with a guide to learn about the street’s past as one of the oldest areas in Georgia.
  • Wear flat, comfortable shoes for walking on the cobblestones.
  • A wheelchair accessible entrance is available through an elevator at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
  • River Street offers great nightlife as well as kid-friendly attractions.

How to Get There
River Street is located below the level of the rest of Savannah’s downtown, and is accessible by a series of stairways and ramps from East Bay Street. Though you can drive to River Street, parking is very limited; it is recommended to park elsewhere, or take the city’s free downtown area shuttle, which drops off within two blocks of River Street. River Street runs for nine blocks, roughly the length of Savannah’s historic district.

When to Get There
River Street is open year-round. Savannah’s summer months are notoriously hot and humid, so if you’re planning to spend much time walking around, aim for a spring or fall visit. If bars and clubs are on your radar, be sure to check out River Street at night—it’s a popular nightlife location.

River Street for History Buffs
River Street is one of the oldest continuously used areas in all of Georgia. In fact, it is the site where James Oglethorpe first landed and established the Savannah colony in 1733.
Address: River St, Savannah, GA, USA

Pedal through Savannah Bike Tour

star-5
Touring Savannah by bike is the most efficient way to see the city! Cover a lot of ground, including most of the historic district, with greater efficiency and less fatigue. Enjoy the freedom of exploring the quiet, lesser-known streets that link the well-worn paths. Journey up-close and personal to destinations along the way, stopping for awhile to admire and photograph Savannah’s beauty as you learn of its history. A bike tour is the fittest, greenest way to see any city of course, and for our beautiful and laid-back city, our quiet, fume-free ride is ideal. So, avoid contributing to downtown traffic congestion and noise by pedaling through history!
