If you saw Forest Gump, there's no excuse not to visit this one! This is where his bench was, on the north side of the square. Don't expect to see a bench though! you'll get the backside of a stone bench as well as a little garden and signs. That's where the bench was but since they only put the bench there for the movie you won't see it there now.
Before your trip to Savannah, just watch the opening feather sequence which pans around the square and then when you go and visit you can say, they shot the movie right here and now I'm here! Outside of all that, it is a pretty square with plenty of opportunities for photographs.
