I used to work in one of the mansions on this square and had exposure to its charm 5 days per week. First, the sounds on this square are magnificent. You'll hear the church bells from the Cathedral, horses clip-clopping while pulling their buggies, and even the tour guides from trollies telling the stories from the past. This park has plenty of benches including a very large U-shaped concrete bench where Bull St crosses at Perry St.
Chippewa square is also home to the scenes in Forrest Gump where Tom Hanks is sitting on the bench waiting for the bus. The bench itself, however, is no longer located on this square. The Savannah Theatre is located on this square which creates a rich night-life here. The best coffee best independent coffee shop in town, Galllery Espresso, is located on this square at the corner of Bull and Perry St. Stop in for hot and iced coffees as well as tempting baked treats. They have a revolving gallery here as well. The Victorian mansions on this square are exquisite. They are not open for tours, but you can enjoy their beauty from the square and even peek into one of their gardens complete with statuary. Parker's Gourmet Market is just one block off of Chippewa Square. They have a gourmet lunch counter and the best lemonade in town. I think you'll enjoy Chippewa Square just as much as I have.
