March 26, 2015 at 3:53 PM | by | Comments (0)

Binging on the best new TV shows isn't just a great way to spend a weekend, it's also a way to find your next vacation destination.

Netflix's latest binge-worthy drama Bloodline, starring Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Sissy Spacek, and Ben Mendelsohn, follows the Ryaburns as their oldest son comes home, bringing the family's "secrets and scars" back with him. All of this drama is set in the sun-soaked Florida Keys, which are so integral to the series' plot they're like another character on the show.

Scheming and Sightseeing With the 'House Of Cards' Tour Of Baltimore

March 6, 2015 at 12:56 PM | by | Comments (0)

House of Cards might be set in the high stakes world of Washington D.C., but the series is actually filmed on location in Baltimore. Here's a look at where you can eat, stay, and be entertained in Frank and Claire's world.

Where to Eat:

During the first and second season of House of Cards Frank frequented Freddy’s BBQ Rib Joint but, unfortunately, Freddy's doesn't really exist. So, if you're in Baltimore and want some authentic BBQ Chaps Pit Beef is the next best thing.

If you want to check out another HOC hotspot, try Werner’s in downtown Baltimore. This diner was featured in the first season and the third season as one of Doug's many meeting places.

Conan O’Brien made history last night when he aired an episode of his late night talk show that was filmed entirely in Cuba, making him the first American late-night talk show host to broadcast from the country since Jack Paar interviewed Fidel Castro for The Tonight Show in 1959.

O'Brien, along with a small crew, spent four days in Havana, Cuba over Presidents' Day weekend with no real plan, other than trying to meet the people of Cuba and "make friends."

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.
