In the Movies: Popular Film Destinations

10. Seattle, Washington

Most people think of Grey’s Anatomy when they think about TV shows or movies set in Seattle – but disappointingly, most of the scenes that are supposedly set at Seattle Grace Hospital were actually filmed on a sound stage in Los Angeles.

But, if you’re a movie buff looking for bona fide Seattle filming locations to visit, don’t fret. You can visit Lake Union to take a look at the floating home that opens Sleepless in Seattle, or Gasworks Park, where the famous paintball date scene in 10 Things I Hate About You took place.
