If you are going to Chippewa Square to sit on the park bench where Forrest Gump sat go for it. But it's not there. It's still a pretty stop, but it's simply not the same. I knew they didn't have the same 'park bench' where Tom Hanks sat, and even knew they moved it to a museum, but I thought... More

A nice little park right smack in the middle of the historic district. What makes this place stand out from the rest, is that Forrest Gump's famous bus scene of him waiting on the bench was filmed here. The bench no longer remains, and there is no sign post marking the spot. Instead look for the spot where the one... More

Chippewa Square is a quiet park tucked in the middle of downtown Savanna. But what makes this park so interesting is that Forest Gump waited with his box of chocolates here.

With so many squares in Savannah it's hard to pick why one is better than another but this one is great. The beautiful architecture surrounding the square the gorgeous trees with Spanish moss hanging down creates a a secret garden experience. Loved the historical statues in the park.

This is another of the very attractive squares that dot the historic district of Old Savannah. Spacious and quite attractive with benches for quiet sitting and an invitation to slow down and enjoy this beautiful city

Great place to take pictures. Spanish moss hanging from the trees. The same square where Forest Gump's bench was.

It is cool that this is where some of Forrest Gump was filmed, but besides that, it is beautiful and peaceful.

This square, like all the others in Savannah is an oasis of calm and tranquility. It was one place we just had to visit. Dropped off by our Old Savannah trolley bus, we stopped for a short while. We were disappointed that the "Forrest Gump Bench" was not there and was only ever placed there for the film. But nevertheless,... More

No, I won't put you to sleep with reviews of all the squares, but this one, Chippewa Square, is a nice one for a summary. Relatives and a friend took us for a downtown tour in mid-July so you have to contend with the likelihood of rain. And so it rained and stormed! During a break, we got out of... More
