Hollywood surely knows how to mix travel and romance. Several romantic scenes have taken place in locations that most of us recognize due to it being filmed at that particular location.
So grab a tub of popcorn and read on as we explore five different locations around the world that were apart of some magical movie moments.
A visit to New York City is not complete without a stop at Katz’s Delicatessen. Extremely popular for its pastrami sandwiches and hot dogs, what also makes Katz’s famous is it being the site of Meg Ryan’s famous “I’ll have what she’s having” fake orgasm scene in the romantic comedy When Harry Met Sally. Die hard fanatics of the movie can even choose to dine at the same table where the scene was filmed.
Empire State Building
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan starred in the classic romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle, but it was 3,500 miles away from the Emerald City where the movie had its most memorable moment. Of course I am talking about the film’s climax, which took place at the Empire State Building in New York City. Visit the observation deck to create your very own romantic memory.
Notting Hill is a romantic comedy set in England where Hugh Grant falls in love with an American woman, played by Julia Roberts. The must see romantic movie was filmed on the streets of London, especially on Portobello Road in the neighborhood of Notting Hill. Besides enjoying the lovely locales of the movie, you can also enjoy the extremely colorful Notting Hill Carnival and great shopping at Portobello Road Market.
Rodeo Drive located in Beverly Hills, California is a must for anyone who has watched and loved the movie Pretty Woman. It is featured prominently throughout the film. Who can forget the famous shopping scene in the movie? Rodeo Drive was where it all happened. Some of the boutique names have changed since then but the glitzy, upscale ambiance is the same. So take a trip to the drive and re-live the romantic moments.
“Twi-hards” and fans alike of the modern day romantic movie Twilight can choose to re-ignite their love of the film series in the city of Forks, Washington. Forks has gained notability for being a key setting in Stephenie Meyer’s vampire teen flicks. A trip to the small town of Forks should help you conjure up images of vampire, adventure and romance that perhaps made Twilight one of the best romantic movies of modern times.
The history of the silver screen is full of romantic destinations. So, give the beaches and sunsets a rest and head to these destinations that are iconic representations of love.
