This was fun to go see. Even my husband got into some of the photos. Also, this has to be the cleanest visitor center we've ever been in. Great photo opportunities.

Gump on a bench.

Strange Forrest Gump Statue

The Georgia Information Center just north of Savannah is very attractive and has a lot of neat stuff inside. There is a replica trolley, a lighthouse, a statue of a sea turtle, a replica of the tree faces on St. Simons Island, and a somewhat strange-looking Forrest Gump sitting on a bench. I wouldn't say he's creepy, but he just doesn't look right.

We'll say it. He's creepy.
