Fodor's Review

Converted from a public square to a parking garage in the 1970s, Ellis Square has been restored in recent years and is once again one of Savannah's most popular spots. Near the western end stands a statue of legendary songwriter Johnny Mercer, a Savannah native. Nearby is a visitor center with a touch-screen city guide, maps and brochures, and public restrooms. To the east is a lifesize chess board; the pieces can be requested at the visitor center. A treat for youngsters

(and the young at heart) is the square's interactive fountain, which is entertaining and refreshing in the warmer months.
