We stopped at Telfair Square to enjoy our chocolates and the sunshine and it just happen to be during the book signing festival. The park is beautiful and were able to visit with others enjoying the benches. Even got to speak with Paula Deen. You never know who you are going to see in Savannah!

I used to eat my lunch here when I worked downtown. I miss it, and it is surrounded by all of the art museums, one of which has the greatest gift shop on the planet. Buy presents for everyone you know here, way better than the mall!

This is another one of Savannah's great squares. I was disappointed to see that the statue was not there, although I can understand why. This is a great place to spend some time and just relax. Its worth a stop.

Modern meets history, chic meets classic on Telfair Square with the majestic and moden Jepson Center and Telfair Academy of Arts. Italian statues, ancient live oaks and dramatic architecture set the scene for a celebration in nature during events held the square. Don't miss CafeZeum for lunch (in Jepson Center), or dinner at the oft forgotten fine dining Alligator Soul... More

A great starting area for a walk to see the historic district of Savannah. Restaurants and a coffee shop nearby.

A visual feast. Don't even think about going without visiting both the Jepson Center and the older Telfair museum

My wife and i went to Telfair Square on our way to the Chatham Courthouse to find out about Savannah's Drug Court. It is a very beautiful square, even without the Bird Girl statue.

the bird girl statue is IN the museum - one has to pay to get in the museum to see the statue - and then it was just standing at the front of the staircase - very disappointing - and the museum displays were disappointing too
