drinks sitting on a tableSavannah is a beautiful city to visit and offers endless entertainment to those who visit. Once you’ve found the best bed and breakfast in Savannah to stay at, stroll down Riverstreet in Savannah for a tour back in time. The old cotton warehouses have been transformed into shops catering to just about everything a tourist could want — candy, sunglasses, and crafts — all located in front of the mighty Savannah River. Come and see how to spend your day on Riverstreet.

See the Olympic Cauldron statue that memorializes the Olympic flame, lit from the original flame in Greece, and the Waving Girl statue – a salute to Southern hospitality. As you walk down Riverstreet you will also see barges laden with goods heading to the working harbor. Street performers sing, dance, and make roses from palm fronds, while you watch.Head into the Gallery 209, where stained glass, paintings, and jewelry in a rainbow of colors waiting to become the next treasure for tourists seeking a souvenir. In the open-air Riverstreet Market visitors can peruse through stalls filled with silver, wind spinners, henna tattoos, beef jerky, and more. There are more than 50 shops to explore in the restored sheds.

All of the shopping will work up an appetite. Take time to sample one of the tasty restaurants lining Riverstreet. Huey’s has fresh beignets, powdered sugar-coated donut-like creations, to tempt the tastebuds. They also serve a fantastic brunch that includes Pontchartrain omelets and crabcake benedict. River House Seafood, The Shrimp Factory, and Vic’s on the River are more good options for a delicious meal. Enjoy upscale dining or something more relaxed – there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.

After your meal, satisfy that sweet tooth with a visit to River Street Sweets for some pecan pralines, gourmet popcorn, and dark chocolate sea salt caramels. They also have baked goods like Praline Cake and salt water taffy. Pick up a bag or a gift basket to take home and nosh on. Cinnamon Bear Country Store has soaps, toys, Brighton jewelry, and many more unique gifts. True Grits has everything nautical for the water lovers who visit Riverstreet.

Gather your friends and end your day with a visit to Wet Willies or another favorite bar where frozen drinks, live music, and rooftop views are a perfect way to complete your Riverstreet visit.
