I enjoy visiting tourist destinations connected to TV shows. There's Schuyler, VA for the Waltons, Mount Airy, NC for Andy Griffith. There's the Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, MO. It's also fun to try restaurants featured on Kitchen Nightmares. Do any of you enjoy similar destinations?

I lived in Albuquerque... Breaking Bad and In Plain Sight. Don't know that I'd go there as a tourist having lived there, but it's a nice place, home of Balloon Fiesta (look it up, trust me, it's a huge deal out there... And kind of cool really...).

Just before we left Abq. they had started a trolley tour of the Breaking Bad locations.

As for restaurants, hell yeah. The Mrs. and I favor those seen on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and have eaten at quite a few featured on Rachel Ray's $40 a Day.

I would love to visit the movie sets in New Zealand for LOTR.
