February 26, 2015 at 3:32 PM | by | Comments (0)

Game of Thrones has already brought more than £87 million to Northern Ireland, where it is primarily filmed, but that hasn't stopped local officials from looking for new ways to cash in on the hit HBO show.

With GOT's fifth season debuting in April, the Northern Ireland Tourist Board has put together a map of the series' filming locations, including a 3-day itinerary for the ultimate Game of Thrones road trip. The new, free resources are designed to bring more tourists, and tourism dollars, to the region.

January 27, 2015 at 1:22 PM | by | Comment (1)

Last weekend, to celebrate the return of Comedy Central's Broad City, the Lyft App gave fans in NYC a ride in their spiffy new Broad City RV (pictured above). For those who missed out, we have the next best thing.

Here are 5 Broad City filming locations you can visit anytime, without Bevers, Abbi's roommate's boyfriend, screwing it up for you.

1. Chalk Gym

Abbi is employed as a Cleaner at NYC's trendy "Soulstice" (seriously, it's the title on her t-shirt) but if you were planning on getting a membership, you're out-of-luck since the gym doesn't actually exist. You can check out the next best thing though, Chalk Gyms in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where the Soulstice scenes are filmed. Get ready to Slide and Glide, mothaf*ckers!

Why HBO's Sunday Night Line-Up is The Most Travel-Inspiring Night on TV

January 16, 2015 at 2:17 PM | by | Comments (0)

With the return of Girls, Looking, and the debut of Togetherness, Sunday night on HBO has become the most travel-inspiring night on TV.

Each show perfectly captures the city in which it is set, for Girls, that means Brooklyn, for Looking its San Francisco, and now, Togetherness is showing us a new side of L.A.

Hannah might be moving to Iowa on the show but, in reality, she never leaves Brooklyn. A few of the new locations to look out for in season four of Girls include Brooklyn's Ditmas Park neighborhood, which is playing Iowa on the show, to the dismay of locals.

Another location that is new for this season is The Gutter in Williamsburg. According to Bustle, the cast and crew spent two days filming at the Brooklyn bowling alley last summer.

After a few years of taking the hits on their city's strange culture, and laughing about it too, the actual people who inhabit Portland, Oregon may be totally done with the "Portlandia" sketch show starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brown (and occasionally, Kyle Maclachlan.)

Still, there's no denying that even skits that have nothing to do with Portland (like the Battlestar Galactica marathon) had us wanting to go to there and hang out with some like-minded peeps.

So whether you visit Portland to locate the "Feminist Bookstore", or take an Instagram-worthy shot of the "Keep Portland Weird" sign, or eat your way through the Food Trucks, here are some ideas for your visit.
