Savannah is a beautiful city and designed to be easily walkable. There are many small squares throughout the historic district of the city surrounded by churches and museums.

We rented bikes from that city share and road all around Savannah and we had to stop at Chippewa Square because many of the locals told us this was the square that use to have the bench that was used in Forrest Gump the movie. Now the bench has been moved because too many people were trying to take pieces... More

I think Chippewa Square is one of the prettiest squares in the historical district. It is pleasant to walk through and the homes are so pretty.

Chippewa Square was another historical stop on a few of the tours. In addition, Forest Gump sat on one of the benches in the square. The bench has been removed, but the park remains. 1 out of the 22 parks in the historic area surrounded by the historic architecture on all sides of the park.

Of course you can't think about Savannah without thinking about Forest Gump. On our Segway tour, our guide pointed out where he sat on his bench with the feather floating down and landing on his shoe, with the church steeple in the background. The actual bench he sat on is no longer here as it is in the Savannah History... More

This is my most favorite square in Savannah. What I love about it? First of all, there is Gallery Espresso coffee shop with a wide variety of food and drink selection for a coffee shop junkee (me!); then, there is a Six Pence pub with amazing British food selection; and then, there is Savannah Theatre where you can watch some...

Chippewa Square is one of many squares in Savannah, most of which are within walking distance of each other. The biggest drawback to this square like the others are the homeless and people asking for money.

If you've been to the historic district in Savannah you may find that all of the Squares start to look the same as you walk about the city...however Chippewa is one of the larger, nicer squares. There are lots of benches to take a rest on, however at night this place is a little creepy looking. We took a zombie... More

You have to see Forest Gump's spot! It's fun to figure out where he sat in this iconic scene- hint, it doesn't quite look the same now.

I really enjoy when we meet a guy just dressing and acting like Forrest Gump at the time we visited square. There are 26 squares at Savannah to walk and visit.
