Things you might not know about Savannah, Georgia:
First, it is America’s first planned city. The beautiful downtown area, designed by founder James Edward Oglethorpe, comprises one of the largest National Historic Landmark Districts in the United States.
Second, Savannah was the host city for the sailing competitions during the 1996 Summer Olympics held in Atlanta.
Third, Chippewa Square in the city is famous for being the anchoring scene in the movie “Forrest Gump.” It’s where Forrest sat on a bench waiting for the bus, meanwhile reviewing his life and making his “Life is like a box of chocolates…” observation.
And, last but certainly not least, Savannah is the site for the next Twin Commander University. The dates are Thursday-Saturday April 23-25, and the place is the Hilton Savannah Desoto hotel in the heart of the Savannah historic district.
