While a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour Washington DC in comfort with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a guided bus and walking tour of more than 30 local TV and film sites from On Location Tours, Inc. (a $40 value, fees included). Tours take place every Saturday at 10 a.m., year-round and in all weather conditions.
Over the course of 3 hours, On Location Tours will transport you to a multitude of memorable TV and movie sites, each haunted with the ghosts of brilliant dialogue and the lingering scents of celebrity gym bags. You’ll get to shop at the mall from No Way Out and True Lies, see the bar from St. Elmo’s Fire, and feel your head spin on the steps of The Exorcist house. Fervent film-philes can finally see where Wedding Crashers, Thank You For Smoking, X-Files, Independence Day, Forrest Gump, G.I. Joe, Night at the Museum 2, and National Treasure were staged. On the bus, show off your pipes and your encyclopedic knowledge of TV theme songs as a local actor leads a sing-a-long and supplies the history of each passing site.
