Stranger Things

Now through August, you can book a stay in the Upside Down at The Gregory’s Stranger Things-themed room in New York City. It comes decked out with décor and snacks inspired by the show, including colorful Christmas lights and plenty of Eggo waffles. Demogorgon not included.

Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad

The home where schoolteacher turned crime lord Walter White once lived on Breaking Bad is an actual residence at 308 Negra Arroyo Lane in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After the show, it became so popular that its owners had to install round the clock surveillance, but you can still drop by for a quick photo op.

American Horror Story: Murder House

American Horror Story: Murder House

If you want to make a road trip of it, you can also pop up to Los Angeles to visit American Horror Story‘s infamous Murder House mansion, located at 120 Westchester Place. It’s privately owned, so you likely won’t be able to go in, but it looks just as fearsome from the outside.

Gilmore Girls‘ Dragonfly Inn may not exist in real life, but you can still visit the charming lodge that helped inspire the show: The Grace Mayflower in Washington, Connecticut.



Just as in Sherlock, Detective Holmes and Dr. Watson’s iconic London apartment is located above the now famous Speedy’s Café. You can find the real one, which was used for external shots, at 187 North Gower Street.

Thanks to Nickelodeon and Nick Resort Punta Cana’s SpongeBob Squarepants villa, you can try out your own pineapple under the sea during a stay in the Dominican Republic. The luxury suite boasts two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a private pool, and 1,500 square feet of space, making it ideal for family getaways.

Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey

Perhaps the most recognizable destination on this list is Highclere Castle in West Berkshire, England, home to the Grantham family on Downton Abbey. The eighth Earl of Carnarvon and his wife live there now, but the grounds and select parts of the castle are open to the public between 60 to 70 days a year.

Gilligan's Island

Gilligan’s Island

Reacquaint yourself with some of TV’s funniest castaways in the Gilligan’s Island room at Radisson’s King of Prussia hotel in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.


The Sopranos

Even 10 years after The Sopranos finale, you can still stop by the diner featured in its final episode: Holsten’s Brookdale Confectionary Ice Cream Parlor, located in Bloomfield, New Jersey.

The Walking Dead

It may look a little different without walkers looming beyond the gates, but The Walking Dead‘s post-apocalyptic haven, Woodbury, is a real place. Scenes of the town were filmed on Main St. in Senoia, Georgia.

Game of Thrones fans now have the chance to wander the world of Westeros IRL.

Lapland Hotels SnowVillage — located in Lapland, Finland — announced on Tuesday that they’d teamed with HBO Nordic to construct 24 GoT-themed rooms made entirely of ice and snow.

Each room features professionally-sculpted figures related to the megapopular series, including a replica of the legendary Iron Throne and a menacing White Walker, complete with blue-lit eyes.

The hotel is only open through April 30, so after jetting off to the Seven Kingdoms, head to some of the other places you can live out your favorite shows listed in the gallery above.
