One of many squares on Bull street...a must see for any Forrest Gump Fan! This is where the bus stop scenes were filmed. If you are expecting the bus stop bench to be there it wasn't.

Small Park in the heart of the historic district and near Leopolds ice cream. If it wasn't for the link to the Forest Gump movie, I doubt most people would even stop.

One of the many pretty squares. We too looked for the Forest Gump Bench and were disappointed to learn it was in a museum. Wish they would put a statue on the bench where he sat, or at least a plaque..

One of the many historic squares to visit while in Savannah but do not expect to see the famous Forest Gump Bus Stop bench. It has been moved to one of the museums in Savannah. This is still a beautiful place to see.

A nice square with lots of information on the history of the area. A good place to visit on a sunny day. The trolley passes by here regularly but it's a nice place to 'just walk around'.

Another one of the great little squares to sit in the shade and watch the world go by. If you are walking around the pause will refresh.

We stopped here a few times during our stay. Beautiful homes all around. Lovely churches and popular sites are nearby. We stopped at many of these squares while we were here. All were nice. I do believe they should mark the exact place of the Forest Gump bench, though. We ran into so many people looking for the bench. I... More
