Savannah, Georgia: Where Forrest Gump Sat - Bench Site

A reasonably convenient place to bring a lawn chair (or a styrofoam prop bench) and pretend to be Tom Hanks in a Hollywood movie. No bench here, though.

Hanks was here!

Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. Also, don't go lookin' for that bench.

Forrest Gump movie location.

Where Forrest Gump Sat - Bench Site

From the movie Forrest Gump. This is the site of the bench where Forrest sets waiting on a bus to take him to see Jenny, and describing his life events to whomever will listen. The bench was located here only for the filming of the movie -- the bench was setting where the one way sign is located.
