Chippewa Square was just outside our B & B, so we had several opportunities to walk through this park. Savannah has many such squares in the Historic District, and they are all perfect for sitting on a park bench and watching tourists pass by. We...More

Chippewa square is another beautiful park and a great place to relax on a park bench or stroll around. If you watch Forest Gump before you visit you can try to figure out which bench he sat on as the feather floated by that beautiful...More
