It’s lights, camera, action all over the United States, a movie- and television-lover’s paradise boasting an enormous collection of famous filming locations. Whether you’re headed to San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, or Oahu, here are some film-themed sites to check out. 

Los Angeles
For a quintessential movie and television experience, there’s no better spot than Los Angeles—the epicenter of the world’s entertainment industry. To get an up-close look at Hollywood film and TV production, join a studio and movie stars’ homes tour, on which you’ll catch a glimpse of the glamour and excitement of LA’s resident celebrities, and get a taste of the city’s movie magic.

New York City
From Gossip Girl to Seinfeld, NYC boasts a startling array of filming locations and serves as the backdrop for some of pop culture’s most famous entertainment moments. You might focus your New York movie and television exploration on a specific show on a Sopranos- or Sex and the City–themed tour, or get an overview of Big Apple entertainment history on a citywide movie and TV filming sites tour.

San Francisco
Although San Francisco gets overshadowed by New York and LA when it comes to film and TV history, this city by the bay has its own place in the annals of  screen-based entertainment. Discover San Francisco’s top filming locations on a city tour of movie sites, some of which  you may recognize from famous productions like Vertigo, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Dirty Harry.

Oahu
The Hawaiian island of Oahu has stood in for countless tropical, jungly destinations in myriad movies and television shows. Oahu visitors can explore the island’s film and television history by heading to the lush Kualoa Ranch, setting for Jurassic Park and Pearl Harbor, or by joining a TV-themed tour focused on famous shows like Hawaii Five-0 and Lost.
