Each year Savannah attracts millions of visitors to it’s historic district, it’s parks and squares and it’s beautiful historical homes and architecture. We spent our day in the historic River Street. Lined with old buildings from the 1700’s that were warehouses, mills and factories, they now house quaint shops, art galleries and restaurants. Instead of shopping (which we did do a little), we enjoyed looking at the old architecture.  The exposed brick and stone.  The old, original cobblestone street. It truly is beautiful.  We had lunch at the Dockside Restaurant right on River Street.  It was ok, nothing spectacular.
