Lights, Camera, Action, Boston! Our fabulous city has been on the cusp of the movie scene for some time now with flicks like The Departed, Good Will Hunting, and Mystic River, all being filmed here over recent years. So, we knew it was only a matter of time until someone came up with the great idea of a Hollywood-style movie tour throughout and around downtown Beantown.

“The bus tour incorporates almost the entire city of Boston, starting in Beacon Hill and ending at the Cheers bar,” said Dave Aspro, tour guide for On Location Tours in Boston. “You can watch the scenes of the movies in the bus just as we are nearing a location but we also make some fun stops along the way. For example, we stop at the L Street Tavern, which is probably everyone’s favorite stop, where people can go in and have a drink.”

Ever wanted to see the Leonard Zakim Bridge that appears in The Departed, the Statehouse seen in The Verdict, the law firm featured in Civil Action, the Boston Public Gardens spotted in Alex and Emma, the pub made famous by Cheers, the L Street Tavern featured in Good Will Hunting or the flower shop used in The Town? Well, here’s your chance. “I think when people see a Dunkin Donuts from The Town, it really gives that place a whole other context,” Aspro said.
