The Most Filmed Movie Locations In Every State Would Make For One Hell Of A Great Road Trip
So many times when we’re watching a movie we immediately recognize the place where it was filmed whether the story tells us the location or not. Sometimes it’s not even the place the movie claims it is. But have you ever wondered which locations have been used the most? Even if you haven’t, I’m going to tell you anyway because it’s actually rather interesting.
Thanks to the work of the folks over at GoCompare.com we now know which locations around the country, and the world, have been used the most in movies. They even broke it down by state for us American folk.
According to their what had to be exhaustive research, Central Park in New York City has been used to film a movie the most of any other location — a whopping 231 times. Venice Beach in California is second on the list with 161 movies filmed there, while Greenwich Village in New York City was just a tick behind Venice Beach in third with 160 movies being filmed there over the years.
“To define a top location in each state, we went as granular as we could to isolate a specific building, landmark or city,” Go Compare explained in a statement. And go granular they did, discovering that places like Bourbon Street is the most filmed location in Louisiana (probably could have guessed that one), Caesar’s Palace has been in the most movies for Nevada (again, not a huge shocker), and the Philadelphia Museum of Art is the most used location for filming movies in the great state of Pennsylvania.
Check out the rest of the most filmed locations in each state below, as well as the most filmed locations and countries in the world.
