Escape to the Movies

We all have that favourite movie that we wish we could be a part of. Kids and adults alike enjoy being transported to a world that takes them far away from their worries and limitations. We’ve put together a list of the real locations of your favourite movies, so that you can enjoy them on a whole new level.

Mamma Mia!

The Greek island has amazing beaches that are crawling with young people. As you would expect, the nightlife there is bursting with energy, music and dancing. For a change of pace, go sightseeing. The island is home to many monasteries and monuments. Make sure you see Papadiamantis House Museum and the medieval Castle.

Beauty and the Beast
Alsace, France

While we were all exhilarated by the remake of this classic into a live-action movie, the original holds a special place in all of our hearts. Alsace, France is the region with charming little towns on which the location of the animated movie was based. From festivals to museums, it will leave you enchanted!

The Avengers

Cleveland, Ohio has something for everyone, including superheroes. Make sure you head to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a museum that honours all contributors to rock and roll. Once you cross that off your list, you can catch a ballgame, explore botanical gardens, visit the aquarium, go to an amusement park and much more!

Angel Falls

Angel Falls in Venezuela is the world’s highest, uninterrupted waterfall. It’s no wonder that it was the inspiration for Paradise Falls in “Up.” Get to explore the wildlife and vistas of Canaima National Park on your way to the waterfall, which is only accessible by boat or plane, and prepare for the experience of a lifetime.

Martha’s Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard is an island in Massachusetts that’s a popular destination for the rich and famous. With sandy beaches and clear water, every view is fit for a postcard. When you’re done unwinding on the beach, visit the quaint local shops and restaurants to experience the island like a local.
