Where are the romantic spots in Savannah? 
We'll share a few ideas that we think you'll love, and have posted even more romantic ideas in our Pinterest board. 
Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks, 1994) romanticized with his box of chocolates from a Chippewa Square park bench. Twenty years after it was released, the popular movie , filmed in many downtown Savannah and rural movie locations, still attracts fans to this romantic city. The historic Savannah Theatre is on the square, with 3:00 p.m. matinee and 8:00 p.m. musical shows almost daily.
Forrest Gump: "I'm not a smart man... but I know what love is." The movie starred Hanks, Sally Field (Mrs. Gump), Robin Wright (Jenny), Dan Sinise (Lt. Dan), and Mykelti Williamson (Bubba).
SCAD Museum of Art presents 'Jack Leigh: Full Circle, Low Country Photographs, 1972-2004'
The Jack Leigh photographic exhibit at SCAD MOA evokes new interest in "Jim Berendt's best selling story of murderous jealousy and eccentric aristocrats, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil..." [Source of quote: "Romantic Georgia" by Patrick Allen.]  The novel's cover photograph by Jack Leigh, The Bird Girl statue, is housed in the Telfair Academy on Telfair Square.

Venturers will love to cozy up
at the Byrd Cookie Company's chic
'B. Tillman' restaurant ... too often
overlooked as an affordable place
with glamorous-meets-nostalgic style.
Perfect southside Savannah
lunch or dinner spot when
visiting Wormsloe Plantation, Georgia's
oldest plantation, best known for its
romantic avenue of Live Oaks.
Romantic Georgia by Patrick Allen recommends to "stroll the literary landmarks." Think "Days of Wine and Roses" lyricist Johnny Mercer, Pulitzer Prize poet Conrad Aikens, and Flannery O'Conner. Then, "after all the city pleasures and formal elegance of Old Savannah, it's time to head for the barefoot beaches of the barrier islands". An Atlantic Ocean breeze and unhurried, do-as-you-please atmosphere of the idiosyncratic Tybee Island's small beach town are a mere 20 minute drive from downtown Savannah. Romantics adore the quirkiness and the worth-the-drive cuisine mixed with fresh salty air, laid back casualness, and day boat seafood -- fish, crabs, and shrimp.

Two don't-miss, romantic outings are to see the Super Moons of August 10, and September 9, 2014 from Tybee Island's flat, dark beach. The full moon on August 10, 2014, will present the closest super moon of the year (356,896 kilometers or 221,765 miles). Bring your camera and a blanket! Note: red lights only on Tybee Beach. It's turtle nesting season on Tybee, where passionate volunteers and the City of Tybee protect the vanishing sea turtles.
