For as long there have been movies and television, there have been fans seeking out the locations where their favorite entertainment was filmed. A new guidebook from Lonely Planet spotlights noteworthy filming locations around the world, and they’ve shared some of the most picturesque destinations in the slideshow above.
Hospital where Rick emerges from coma (S1-E1, “Days Gone By”): In the series’ first episode, Rick Grimes wakes up in a hospital from a coma, only to realize the zombie apocalypse has begun.
In real life it’s not a hospital. It’s actually the administrative campus of the Atlanta Mission, a local non-profit that combats homelessness.
Jackson Street Bridge (S1-E1, “Days Gone By”): In the series’ first episode, after breaking out of the hospital, Rick sets out in search of his wife and son. As he heads toward Atlanta, he runs out of gas. He snatches a horse from a nearby farm and rides into Atlanta in one of the show’s most iconic shots.
The shot can be recreated by heading to the Jackson Street Bridge, a spot with a gorgeous view of Atlanta’s skyline. (GPS: 170 Jackson Street NE, Atlanta, Ga., 30312)
