Oscar nominated films are selected for many wondrous aspects, but the setting of their stories is not one of them. To celebrate the Oscars in a different way, here are some of the best destinations to travel around to reminisce in your own fame.
- Copenhagen from “The Danish Girl”: The waterfront district of Nyhavn has great little townhouses lining the waterways. Some scenes in the movie glimpse iconic structures with great history to delve into.
- Brooklyn Coney Island/Wexford from “Brooklyn”: Iconic beaches are shown in this movie with two different atmospheres, a packed beach where people battle it out for space and the more remote pristine beaches in Ireland. The soft dunes of Ireland’s beaches are nearby St. Aidan’s cathedral.
