E River St. Savannah, GA 31401
Savannah Riverfront is a 2.6km heavily trafficked out and back trail featuring the famous Savannah River. It's a beautiful historic riverfront walk, where you can see ships of all sizes pass by, from gigantic container ships to paddlewheel riverboats to small watercraft. It can be accessed from any point along the way, but we prefer to take River Street so you can be close to numerous shops, restaurants, and pubs while you enjoy the view. Although it only promises a casual stroll and not an intense hike like some of the city's trails, the Riverfront is surely the best way to see the beauty of Savannah!
