Scenic North Carolina always ready for its closeup FADE IN: Exterior.
Tree lined, riverside road. Four women pedal bicycles under the canopy of trees shading the street. They ride four abreast along the weathered pavement, basking in the late afternoon sunshine. WOMAN 1: "I feel like I'm in a Nicholas Sparks movie." This North Carolina set along Southport's maritime backdrop has been a Walk to Remember and Safe Haven. Directly in my sightline are several recognizable settings from both movies: The scenic dock where Shane West narrates the tragic sweet love story in 2002's A Walk to Remember; the century old home where Josh Duhamel's character lived with his two children in Safe Haven, and the bar where Julianne Hough's character waited tables.

Head north along the coast to Wilmington and you're in Dawson's Creek and One Tree Hill. Visitors have entered Hollywood East.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. were regularly seen walking around Wilmington while filming Iron Man 3, One Tree Hill stars took up residence during their nine year run and Under the Dome's Dean Norris is a regular at Wilmington's award winning Front Street Brewery. Some have even taken Mike Hartle's Ghost Walk of Old Wilmington. On appearance, the middle aged Hartle seems unlikely to be engrossed in the teen angst of Dawson's Creek or One Tree Hill. But he has watched every episode of the teen dramas at least three bracelets online australia times to prepare for the uber fans taking his Hollywood Location Walk. "They've paid my bills for the last eight," he jokes. The tour strolls along the Cape Fear River (not the location of the 1962 movie or the 1991 remake) weaving through the historic core past Matlock's courthouse (Alton Lennon Federal Building), Karen's Cafe from OTH (Port City Java), Revolution's jail and Firestarter's New York Times (Murchison's National Bank) and numerous other film locations. During the tour, it's difficult pandora bracelet official site to ignore the historic plaques mounted on many stately mansions. Visitors are welcome to walk onto the porches to take a closer look or get a history lesson on the horse drawn carriage ride offered throughout the day by Springbrook Farms. Downtown Wilmington has 30 restaurants and 16 inns and B within a few city blocks. Many inns offer a little bit of new Hollywood and Civil War era history. Built with old railroad money by the daughter of a Confederate congressman, the opulent Graystone Inn is often transformed into a movie or television set. The preproduction crew for the next Nicholas Sparks movie, The Longest Ride, had visited the day before we toured. Outside the downtown core, Arlie Gardens also caters to history buffs and film fans. Offering concert series, bird hikes and beautiful charm bracelets australia online gardens, this oasis also has a "Filmed at Arlie" map and an incredible history. Arlie stakes claim the idiom "keeping up with the Joneses," tracing it back to the original owners of the estate and their dinner party favours of diamond necklaces. It also has many vantage points for the creek in Dawson's Creek. Civil War to give visitors a history lesson unlike any other. He enthusiastically tells the tale of the Confederate flag housed there, which ultimately thwarted John Wilkes Booth's attempted kidnapping of President Abraham Lincoln and led to Lincoln's later assassination. The captured flag, or rather the presentation of that Confederate flag, forced a change to Lincoln's itinerary when he was supposed to attend a play. Booth's original plan was to kidnap the president on his way home from the play. Walking through the site, McKee entertains and educates with anecdotes from the last days of the Civil War and ghost stories, as well as animated explanations of how the season finale of Sleepy Hollow was filmed. Many of Southport's sites are also of historic and Hollywood interest. But in his electric cart, he will give guests a town tour and share historic and Hollywood trivia. At the old jail a two storey brick building with its original iron bars, which opened in 1792 and housed prisoners until 1971 tourists can flip through the old logs and also recreated scenes from Oscar nominated Crimes of the Heart. The restored Fort Johnston Southport Museum Visitors Centre even has Hollywood memorabilia on display, Safe Haven being the most prominent.
And for those looking to enjoy a meal on the movie set, Ports of Call restaurant embraces its starring role in a romantic montage and serves creative and delicious specials. Even the sunset during our last evening on North Carolina's coast seems like a scene from a movie.
