    Beautiful view with the flowing river and historic buildings, so many restaurants and bars. Good place to eat, drink and walk. Little crowdy but its the heart of Savannah. The bridge on the river looks so beautiful at sunset! I love the place. So serene.

    The historic buildings and views of the river are great. The shops were a little tourist-trap-cheezy for my taste.
