Savannah: Squares and Surroundings

There are twenty-two squares in the city of Savannah. The layout of these squares began with just four squares in 1733, expanding as a grid in the city with each being named in honor of a historic figure or event.

One of the more popular Squares is Chippewa Square, known for being the location of the famed park bench from the film Forrest Gump and the First Baptist Church also filmed in the movie (true story: the bench in the movie was just a prop, and is now at Savannah's Visitors Center).

And let's talk about how gorgeous the architecure surrounding the squares is....

Magnificent mansions, wrought-iron gates, ivy and moss covered walls (and stairs!)...the greenery, Spanish moss and live oaks are endless...add to that the clomp of horse-drawn carriage tours? It's like being on a movie set...
