Twenty years have passed since Forrest Gump first regaled strangers on a Savannah park bench with tales of American history and boxes of chocolate, but the film remains an iconic part of our nation's film canon. Perhaps equally iconic are the film's locations—sweeping in breadth, the movie transports viewers from the American South to Vietnam.

For a taste of Forrest Gump's version of American history, skip the line at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. and take a trip to one of these locations instead.
