Factors Walk Review

A network of iron crosswalks and steep stone stairways connects Bay Street to Factors Walk below. The congested area of multistory buildings was originally the center of commerce for cotton brokers, who walked between and above the lower cotton warehouses. Cobblestone ramps lead pedestrians down to River Street. This area is paved in cobblestones, so wear comfortable shoes.

    Not worth visiting

    Essentially an uninviting, claustrophobic alley located between River Street and Bay Street and running parallel to them, crisscrossed by a series of metal footbridges. Very uneven and sometimes steep street area of cobblestones that invites an ankle turning. Definitely not worth the trouble.

    Great for History nuts.

    I loved Factor's Walk. It was very old and hard to get around because of the cobblestones but it is full of the history of Georgia and the first Georgians to live there. I found it very interesting even with all the gift shops and bars that are there now.

    Don't bother

    Primarily a collection of t-shirt and cheap souvenir shops. Too bad that the city's river frontage hasn't been put to better use!
