In the old days, Savannah's Broughton Street was where visitors and residents alike did their high-fashion shopping. It featured independent specialty shops and boutiques for the avid shopper. Since then, Broughton Street has expanded their shops to include mainstream stores. Now, with both local vendors and brand names that sell apparel, shoe, antiques, and more, shoppers can find the latest trends while experiencing the glamour of old Savannah shopping.
In between River Street and Broughton Street is Savannah's famous City Market. The area's name and squared arrangement of shops stems from Savannah's farmer and trader market in the 1700s, making it one of the most popular and historical places for Savannah shopping. After checking out the local gift shops, galleries, and handmade goods, feel free to relax by the fountain and watch the horse carriage tours roll through.
