Several locations in Beafort were used for Forrest Gump.

Fripp Island and Hunting Island State Park was used as Vietnam

Hunting Island

Greenbow is a town that does not exist, instead the real town that was used is Varnville (northwest of Beaufort).

The Gump boarding house was build on the Bluff Plantation.

The four square Baptist church is the Stoney Creek Chappel

What is supposedly in the movie, the university of Alabama, is the University of South Carolina.

The Beaufort performing Arts Center was used as the Bayou le Batre Hospital.

And Bubba’s home was not in Bayou le Batre, but in Lucy Creek (Lady’s Island).
