The pace of life in Savannah is often so relaxed and carefree we tend to forget our history. This was once a major seaport with a lot of activity on the wharfs of the Savannah River. Part of our way of reclaiming the past is the real estate development work that was done along the riverbank known as River Street. Strolling along the sidewalks allows you to go back over 100 years to a different place and time.

Replacing the Old Warehouses with Art Galleries

Back in the day when Cotton was King, River Street was dotted with warehouses full of that white fiber which the mills up North could not seem to have enough of. Those days are gone by, and now the antique shops, restaurants, and some rather distinctive nightspots have taken over. The River Street Inn is one of the hotels which once upon a time was a cotton warehouse. It is now one of the best places to start a visit to historic Savannah and see all of the charming sites. The Old Savannah Tours help all of our visitors get better acquainted with the hustle and bustle that was once all along River Street. The Savannah Waterfront Association provides all kinds of information about the goings-on you can participate in (BTW. The Crawl of the South Part 2 a chance to visit all of the spectacular watering holes along the Savannah River is scheduled for May 30th. You really don't want to miss this.) River Street has replaced the commercial activity with the entertainment fun of today. Things are still busy but in a whole different way and River Street is certainly worth a visit.

Why Not Stay?

There is so much fun to be had along the Savannah River bank that people are sorely tempted to just set down roots and stay in the area. It sounds like a good idea, so why not do it? There are properties close by that a person may take a look at if they wanted to live in the center of some great urban fun. There is also a world of history that is just waiting to be explored in the area. You can take your time and do it all if you live within walking distance. All you need to do is to have a good real estate agent who is familiar with the territory. That person can help you find just the right property where you can live. You don't have to look far to find the best real estate agency. Live Love Savannah is here just for you.
