Sure, Savannah's most famously picturesque neighborhood can be crowded, especially on spring and summer weekends. But missing a stroll along the banks of the Savannah River would be a big mistake. The city's at its sweetest here, all cobblestone streets, stately oak trees and 18th-century row houses containing modern restaurants, bars and boutiques. Wander off River Street proper to see the ornate merchant's mansions and flowering hidden gardens of Savannah's most elite citizens. And don't turn up your nose at a horse-and-carriage ride—if there's any place to do such a thing, it's here.
