Get ready to pump your fists at the top of the steps just like Rocky.
Not all movies are made up of props and fake scenery in a studio. Now more than ever, movies and television shows have been taking advantage of filming at local restaurants to serene scenery.

These destinations have a second life now, where they’re not just known for good corned beef like Katz’s Delicatessen in New York City, but that scene between Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal sitting at one of their tables inside in When Harry Met Sally.

Be sure to add these American travel destinations made iconic by movies and shows to your list for your next trip.
