Wanderlust

The next best thing to being in the movies is being where the movies were shot. Here's five towns to visit which served as iconic movie locations.

5) Savannah, GA: Imagine life is a box of chocolates at the Savannah History Museum where you can see the "Forest Gump" bench. Tour other locales from the movie and films such as "Glory" and "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."

4) Woodstock, IL: Visit once and stay for years as you visit the town where "Groundhog Day" was shot. The bed and breakfast in the film is now a real b&b where you can stay while on your trip to Punxsutawney.

3) Dyersville, IA: Taking "Field of Dreams'" mantra literally, Universal Studios built a regulation baseball field in the middle of corn field. "If you build it, they will come."

2) Tucson, AZ: The Old Tucson Studios has been host to over 300 films and TV shows, mostly westerns like "Rio Bravo" and "Bonanza." It's the perfect place to summon your inner John Wayne.

1) Vancouver, BC, Canada: Aside from being home to much TV production, Vancouver is becoming a pilgrimage site for 'twihards.' Visit locations from the "Twilight" saga including the forest where Bella and Edward fell in love in and visit the red cabin that serves as Jacob's home.
