This page features a collection of my articles highlighting my visits to famous television filming locations. Here you will find a variety of old and new TV Shows.
Television sets became a household item during the 1950s-60s. They have given us countless memories, stars, and moments. Some of the most successful shows have also made their filming locations famous. A steady stream of tourists can be seen at the Friends building in New York City, the Full House house in San Francisco, and The Brady Bunch house in Hollywood. These iconic buildings have become huge tourist attractions.
In some cases, entire towns have benefited from the rise in tourism from a single show. Take the town of Senoia, Georgia as a perfect example. Fans of The Walking Dead have been flocking here for years. Numerous businesses specifically cater to the fans, including souvenir shops, cafes, and a walking tour.
Other shows may not have a huge following. People pass by their locations daily without even realizing the history they hold. The apartments from The Jeffersons and Perfect Strangers blend in with their large cities, with many people passing by without even looking up.
Studios are starting to realize the tourism potential that successful TV Shows can bring. WB Studios in Hollywood has long offered tours of it’s facilities, but has recently added additional attractions. The sets from Friends and The Big Bang Theory are the main highlights. Visitors who purchase any tour get to visit these sets and have their photos taken.
I hope you enjoy reading about my visits to a variety of locations from your favourite TV Shows in this section.
