One of the many lovely squares in Savannah though this one has the distinction of being the site for Forrest Gump's bench. We had actually walked through before we realized it was "the" square and so ended up finding our way back to it.

This is the square in Savannah where Forrest Gump was filmed, but you won't find the bench he sat on here. The bench has been moved to the Savannah History Museum at the Visitor Center. Still a beautiful place to walk around and people watch.

This is a great spot to find a bench and people watch in the shade. Forrest Gump was filmed here and an impersonator walks around in the square. Beautiful state in the center per usual in Savannah.

Great to visit the place from the Forrest Gump film, however there is not actually a park bench there.

This is a pleasant area to wander about in for a few miniutes - has both historical and movie significance.

This square is classic Savannah - picturesque and historical. It's also famous because it's where a scene from Forrest Gump was filmed.

This square is one of the most important sites for the film Forrest Gump. Unfortunately the bench is no longer there.

A great place to stroll, people watch, eat and drink. Enjoyed watched Rob throw pizzas in the air at Vinnie Van GOGO, he had mad skills!

It is cool to be able to be at one of the iconic places from one of the most beloved American movies. But the bench has been moved.
