February 27  #TMOM Twitter Party – Movie Mania!

“And the Academy Award goes to…”

Next Sunday night, we’ll have the answer to the question nagging movie-goers the world over. “Who is going to take home the Oscar?” But no matter who that gold statuette is awarded to, we at #TravelingMom know one thing already – that movie travel is a winner! That’s why we’re dedicating our post-Oscar #TMOM Twitter Party on February 27 to the subject. We’re celebrating movie mania – and inspiring you to plan a trip around your very favorite movie locations.

Many of us are inspired to visit the destinations we fall in love with when we encounter them on the movie screen.  In fact, my family is currently planning a trip to Prince Edward Island, after soaking in the breathtaking scenery in the Anne of Green Gables movies.

But we’re not the only ones. In fact, Norway saw a 32 percent jump in tourism in recent years, thanks in no small part to the Disney favorite, Frozen. Muggles by the score clamor to explore Harry Potter’s Edinborough. And almost as many people come to Philadelphia to run the Rocky steps as to view the Liberty Bell.

Just like travel, movies spark our imagination. So it just makes sense that we are inspired to visit the sites of our favorite films. What travels of yours were inspired by the silver screen? Are you longing to visit a site you first fell in love with over buttered popcorn? Join us at the next #TMOM Twitter party on February 27 at 9 p.m. ET to enjoy our post-Oscar night talk about movie travel. Pass the popcorn, please!
