River Street, Savannah

11 of 10

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.
