Savannah is a terrific walking city with many Historic Squares. Chippewa Square along with many others, are all within walking distance of each other. Every Square is well shaded with Benches. Watch the people, birds and many times street musicians.

Chippewa Square is one of many squares in the historic district of Savannah. It’s famous because it’s where the Forrest Gump bench was there. But was just a prop.
