For fans of film and television, Virginia is a perfect destination. See the many films shot in Virginia and visit the places they were filmed. Walk where the stars have walked, and perhaps see some set remnants along the way.
Walk the streets of beautiful Old Town Petersburg, where the 18th and 19th century drama of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, HBO’s John Adams, and AMC’s TURN: Washington’s Spies played out. Take a drive to the gorgeous historic plantations featured in these stories, including Berkeley, Westover, Shirley and Tuckahoe, all nestled on the James River. Spend the day in charming Big Stone Gap, and see the world of author and director Adriana Trigiani’s characters from her film Big Stone Gap, starring Ashley Judd and Whoopi Goldberg. Then, carve out time for a picturesque weekend getaway at Mountain Lake Lodge, the setting for the unforgettable Dirty Dancing.
For both filmmakers and fans alike, Virginia truly is for Film Lovers.
