If there’s one thing that Savannah isn’t short of, it’s places to shop. In the Historic District some of the cutest shops are tucked into the first and second stories in huge historic buildings. Boutiques and brand names can be found around every corner, delighting shoppers, but for a first-time explorer, the best places to go aren’t always the most obvious. Here are a few spots with some of the best shops in Downtown Savannah.

River Street

If you’re looking for a souvenir, then this is the place to be. Along the cobblestone streets overlooking the Savannah River are some of the most delightful shops carrying all kinds of Savannah goodies, from honey to T-shirts, candy, key chains, jewelry, accessories and much more. Just don’t forget to go up the historic River Street steps and check out Upper Factors Walk, because there are quaint shops and great boutiques to discover there as well!

City Market

Culture meets the streets at City Market. It’s here you’ll find a wealth of art in galleries all over this four-block market which has been a city center since the early 1700s. Clothing boutiques, restaurants, a candy store and even a shop that your pup will love, can all be found here. Every night this hub off Ellis Square comes to life with live music outside at Wild Wing Café and at several of the bars and restaurants nearby.

Broughton Street

For the serious shoppers, head on over to Broughton Street, where small thrift shops collide with brand name retailers, which include H&M, Free People, Banana Republic, Urban Outfitters and J. Crew. Favorites like the Savannah Bee Company and Leopold’s Ice Cream draw visitors to this hot spot and the variety has locals and visitors alike shopping all day long. Whether it’s accessories, clothing, jewelry, furniture or fun trinkets you’re after, you’re sure to find it and more on Broughton Street.

Whitaker Street

If you’re wondering where all of the local fashion boutiques hiding, it’s in Savannah’s Downtown Design District – on Whitaker Street just north of Forsyth Park! But it’s not just clothing you’ll find on Whitaker. Surrounded by gorgeous homes on a street that runs along Forsyth Park are many shops that locals adore, including Custard Boutique, La Paperie and One Fish Two Fish.

Tanger Outlets

And while Downtown Savannah is a magnificent place to shop, you can’t forget that Savannah now has its own outlet stores just 15 minutes outside of our beautiful Historic District. Tanger Outlets opened in the spring of 2015 and has been attracting hundreds every week since. So if Broughton Street doesn’t satisfy your desire for big brand names, then be sure to check out Tanger, where all kinds of great brand names and popular shops await with great sales.


There are two malls on the Southside of Savannah outside of the Historic District, past Midtown, that locals frequent for all kinds of clothes and gifts – the Oglethorpe Mall and the Savannah Mall. Both are located on Abercorn Street about 15 to 20 minutes outside of Downtown Savannah. The Oglethorpe Mall is anchored by Macy’s, JCPenney, Belk and Sears, while the Savannah Mall is anchored by Dillard’s, Target, Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World and Burlington Coat Factory. Visitors will find their favorite apparel and fashion stores at the Oglethorpe Mall and an assortment of all kinds of specialty shops at the Savannah Mall.
