New York is known as being a hub for film and show making. It isn’t uncommon to have to find another route in your NYC travels to get around a movie or show set. Luckily there is a way you can get the inside scoop on the sets around the city – and it is as simple as taking a tour!
Are you a movie or television buff? Have a trip planned to NYC in the coming months? Want to visit the locations where your favorite movie scenes were filmed? The On Location Tours is the company for you.
Tours in New York and Boston
After you’ve finished your general city tour (The Empire State Building, Central Park, indoor play areas, holiday shopping, tasting amazing pizza) – recharge your camera and hit up On Location Tours, which offers tours in New York City and Boston.
A few years back, my husband and I did the ‘Sex and the City’ tour. Not only did they take us to famed Carrie favorites such as the Manolo Blahnik store and Magnolia Bakery, but they also gave us a little time to shop as well. I devoured my (ticket-included) cupcake and bought two cookbooks from the bakery. I have been using butter-filled recipes ever since.
Not Just for Tourists
As a native New Yorker, I LOVED this tour because it allowed me to explore parts of my city that I would have never known about. Little streets, restaurants, churches and more. It was such a great day and I’ve recommended the tour to many, many friends since returning home.
