We love all the beautiful and historic squares which give Savannah such form and organization. The live oaks with Spanish moss blowing in the breeze is so romantic, while providing shade! Great place to sit a while and take in the beauty.

We, like many people, needed to see where the movie "Forrest Gump" had been filmed. We ran into a character portraying Forrest. What fun! I sat and got my photo taken with him. He was terrific.
