New York City
If you’re planning a trip to the Big Apple, there are plenty of famous film locations to visit. From Broadway to Central Park and even Brooklyn, there are plenty of places that have been featured in some of your favorite movies.
Here are some tips for visiting these iconic spots:
- Get there early! Lines can get long as people wait for their chance to see where their favorite stars have stood before them. If possible, arrive before opening time or go during off-peak hours if possible so that you don’t have to wait in line with everyone else who wants their own piece of history too!
- Bring extra cash with you–this isn’t just because it’s New York City; it’s also because many locations require admission fees (such as The Metropolitan Museum Of Art) which can add up quickly depending on how long your stay is going on for!
If you’re a big movie buff, then these locations are for you.
You’ll be able to see the sights that have appeared in your favorite films and learn more about the movie industry. Plus, some of these locations are so famous that it’s almost impossible to take a picture without another tourist standing in front of them.
There are many film locations that you can visit. You just have to decide which ones are right for you. If you’re looking for an exciting adventure and want some time away from home, then Hollywood might be the perfect place for you. On the other hand, if you’d rather stay close to home without having to travel too far off course then New York City might be better suited for your needs!
