#1. Villa Blanca, Beverly Hills.
Lisa Vanderpump's Restaurant - I'm a big fan of Lisa and the restaurant looks lovely.
Maybe we'll see a Lisa/Ken/Giggy sighting.
#2. The Drapers House, Pasadena.
This website is awesome - this gal knows how to house-stalk well. I am impressed.
Don and Betty have since moved on, but I still wanna see it.
My Mad Men friends will be jealous.
#3. The Father of the Bride House, Pasadena, CA.
I still watch this movie anytime it's on TV (and Father of the Bride II). Franc and Howard are hilarious. And I've always loved the Father of the Bride house, spotted here and here.
#4. San Dimas, CA.
Where Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure movie was set (though not filmed there). But who cares? Remember, the movie is on my favorites list, so a drive through it (together with a picture of a San Dimas city sign) will be most triumphant.
However, I was dismayed to hear that Hubs, who is the connoisseur of everything 1980s, has not seen the movie. What the... ?? That will be rectified before our trip, trust me.
#5. Mulholland Drive, LA (and basically all the street names and references in Free Fallin')
Apparently the view is even better at night.
Part II coming up.
