I STILL haven't made the road trip to Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine, where the Forrest Gump movie scene with Tom Hank's beloved character crisscrossing the country took place.

You remember the scene, right?  A favorite thing for people to do is reenact it.

Anyway, this 1994 award-winning, music-filled film directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Eric Roth takes us all on a historic journey of love, fear, hopes, dreams, tears, and laughter.

Starring Tom Hanks, Sally Field, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, and Mykelti Williamson, Forrest Gump moved every one of us. Having one of the iconic scenes at the Marshall Point Lighthouse made this sweet landmark and quaint museum and keeper's house so popular that it's still a bucket list item for many today, including me.

According to the movie, Tom Hank's character, Forrest Gump, ran for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours.  If you click on Movies Stack Exchange, you can see a couple of maps of where Forrest ran, including that one turnaround point at this beautiful lighthouse at the very end of the St. George Peninsula.

I mean, how much more Maine can you get?  There's even a serene live cam.

According to the Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum website, it's totally free to visit and wander around the rocky shoreline taking photos, and run up to the lighthouse door and turn around just like Forrest did.

The grounds are open from sunrise to sunset through mid-October.  Thousands visit annually and even make donations for upkeep inside the museum, which includes Forrest Gump movie info and the history of this special Maine attraction.
