America's Coolest River Walks

River Street, Savannah
Why It’s Cool: Made of ballast stone from ships
arriving from Europe 250 years ago, River Street gently curves for a mile along
the south bank of the Savannah River. Stroll the historic street lined with red
brick sidewalks, plazas, and 100-year-old cotton warehouses converted to funky
shops and galleries while enjoying a drink to go in this
open-container-friendly former pirate haven.
Don’t Miss: The irresistible aroma—and taste—of Savannah’s
Candy Kitchen’s buttery pecan pralines, a traditional southern favorite.
