If you're a movie aficionado, then you know that location is everything,
just like in real estate— “location, location, location.” And when it
comes to travel, film tourism is becoming an increasingly popular trend.
Movies take us on a journey, introduce us to characters we grow to
love, and sometimes leave us with questions that stick with us long
after the credits roll. Imagine if you could visit some of your favorite
movie locations in real life. Well, you can!
Film tourism, also known as movie-induced or cinematographic tourism, was once just studio tours and movie-related theme parks, but has grown to include authentic experiences based on actual filming locations. Now, movie buffs can discover new places based on the films they love—as the internet and social media have made it easier for fans to find the exact locations that have been used in their favorite movies.
