TV and Movie Vacations for the Pop Culture JetsetterMay 7th, 2014 by The JetSetter Team | Comments Off on TV and Movie Vacations for the Pop Culture Jetsetter
If you love the fantasy of television and the fun of travel, we’ve got a few vacations that are sure to be perfect for your lifestyle! From Seinfeld to Sherlock, you’re bound to be inspired by the places that inspired the television—or is it the other way around?
Cosmo Kramer is one of Seinfeld’s most beloved characters because of his crazy antics and over the top personality. For many, the show remains a staple. Luckily, there’s a Seinfeld-specific bus tour still around to meet your needs. Based on the episode where Cosmo Kramer launches the J. Peterman Reality Tour, the bus takes tourists to famous locations from the show and provides a lot of behind the scenes tidbits.
In the episode, Jerry claims that no one could possible want to take a three hour tour of someone’s life, but this tour is still going—despite the fact that Seinfeld has been off air for years. You’ll see minor locations from Jerry and the crew’s day to day life and learn more than you ever hoped to—all for about $40.
Field of Dreams
It’s baseball season, and for many of us, this means a limited amount of non-baseball free time for the next few months. But there’s’ a solution! Why not combine your love of sport, movies, and travel by visiting the awesome Field of Dreams movie site?
Head to Dyersville, Iowa to see the farmhouse, cornfields, and amazing baseball field featured in the 1989 film (and cross your fingers for a Kevin Costner sighting!). While you’re there, take the time to run the base paths or even watch a special game featuring some epic ghosts. 2014 marks the film’s 25th anniversary, so be prepared for even more cool events!
Sherlock (the BBC one)
For this tour, you’ll ride in style—the style of Sherlock and Watson to be exact. Climb into an iconic black cab and visit the many sites of Sherlock. The tour, which lasts about three hours, will visit St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, the exterior of an office, and 221B Baker Street.
As a bonus, the tour includes a free coffee at Speedy’s Café, the shop right next to the detective’s legendary office.
Warner Bros Studio Tour London
Harry Potter fans rejoice! This tour allows us mere muggles to immerse ourselves in the world of our favorite boy wizard. The studio opened in 2012 and features replications of Privet Drive and Diagon Alley, in addition to actual props used in the films.
And, while the tour is awesome to the viewer, we’re happy to tell you that it is also interactive! Ride a broom in front of a green screen or try one of the many foods and beverages in Harry Potter’s world.
