City of Savannah-Hollywood of the South

Savannah’s photogenic side has long served as a popular backdrop for movies. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil was filmed in the Historic District in 1997, and two years later The General’s Daughter was shot at Wormsloe Plantation.

The bench on which Forrest Gump seizes anyone who’ll listen, stood on the north side of Chippewa Square.  If you want to sit and ponder exactly how much like a box of chocolate life is, you’ll find the seats  within the garden square itself. The actual bench now resides in the Savannah History Museum.

Debi’s Restaurant in the city of Savannah is where Jenny worked as a diner waitress in the movie. It’s a functioning eatery off Wright Square that serves Southern cooking; it has to be  visited, it surely adds more interest because Forrest Gump was filmed there.

Miley Cyrus visited the city of Savannah too, while on location in Tybee Island (a quirky beach town on the Atlantic coast some 20 minutes from downtown Savannah) filming the adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel, The Last Song. It follows the story of a troubled teen and her estranged father and the summer they spend reconnecting.

The Legend of The Pirates' House

Savannah’s popular Pirates’ House is listed as one of the most famous places in Georgia. Here, the first experimental garden is located, Trustees Garden. Botanists were shipped from England to the four corners of the world to procure plants for the new project, and soon vine cuttings, fruit trees, and many others were taking part of the Savannah River.

The Captain’s Room with its hand-hewed ceiling beams joined with wood pegs; agreements were made by shorthanded ships masters to Shanghai careless sailors to complete their crews. Tales continue with a tunnel extending from the Old Rum Cellar beneath the Captain’s Room.

A Savannah law-enforcement officer, as the legend says it, stopped by The Pirates’ House for a pleasant drink and awoke on a four-masted ship sailing to China from where it took him two years to make his way back to Savannah.

When in the City of Savannah

Wife and I went for a morning jog along river street and saw this cargo ship leaving port. Amazing sight. There were 2 crew members on deck taking photos as they were leaving port. I tried waving at them but guess they didn’t see me
