Yes, a month. Naturally, when I ran out of episodes I did what I do best, travel. And what better way to get your fix of your favorite neck-biting vamps than by squeezing in a weekender to Covington to explore the Vampire Diaries filming locations. I also highly recommend bringing a good camera. For best quality photos try these mirrorless cameras. Naturally, you want to get right to it.
Is this even a feasible trip? Good news, visiting Georgia is actually pretty budget-friendly. Here are some points to keep you winning:. This means your flights are much cheaper than say if you were trying to fly into Tampa. Covington is the kind of place to check out and deserves more than a once over.
Call me spoiled but the hotel industry was my first career. I like unique places to stay, especially historic and in light of the theme here, a historic inn would be perf! Apart from this, you can always save when using Kayak in Atlanta which is just a half-hour away. Check out my article here. The Vampire Diaries filming locations in Covington A. Mystic Falls, are pretty much public property which gives you one of two options.
You can either wing it, or you can take a guided tour. There are three and only three reasons I opted to take a guided tour of Mystic Falls with Vampire Stalkers over chumming it along on my own:.
This makes it obvious then, that taking this tour will leave me insider knowledge and backstories I otherwise NEVER would have known. Oh, and her startup story is awesome too. She is overall just a ball of sunshine and adored by the cast and of course now me. When you wing it you just get the creepy drive-by version.
Many scenes are shot here. Bench scenes, town scenes and more. These are the benches mostly used in the filming in the Square. The show has to remove the props because people tend to steal them. This one got to stay though! Pretty cool! The Mystic Grill like for really reals!
So cool hearing about all the scenes filmed here. You can actually eat inside, however, keep in mind all the inside stuff is filmed at a soundstage. When you roll into Covington this hits you! This is really the icon of the exterior set of Mystic Falls. A view of the courthouse from Vampire Stalkers.
We all melted when we saw this one. Movie magic turns this into Whitmore Campus. This is actually a local park which is very peaceful and serene. Whitmore and also the place where Elena and Damon kiss. That was here!Instead, it keeps the viewer off-balance, which is disturbing but dramatically smart, because it makes everything more involving.
In fact, it goes further than that. While "Ashley" shows the difference between a good, lawful, productive life and a life spent stumbling around the streets, it shows how each of those lives has its own triumphs and failures. You can be the "good one," living the right kind of life, and still fall short in significant ways. Libba A. Cookthe older sister, lives the right life. She sells medical products, successfully, and she has a handsome, adoring boyfriend. As children, she and Ashley Jennifer Morrison were close.
As they grew older, Ashley developed a troublesome streak of rebellion and irresponsibility. Drinking, drugs, all of it. She also had wild mood swings, plunging from vivacious charm to snarling hostility.
The movie opens with Ashley living at home and her parents pretty much just trying to control the damage - making sure she trashes only her room and her life, not the whole house and all their lives.
Libba, troubled by everything about this picture, lets Ashley move with her to Californiawhere her behavior worsens. Ashley will seem to have a reasonable discussion one day, then ignore it the next. When Libba suggests she try to straighten out her life, Ashley accuses her of sounding like their mother.
Then Ashley disappears, after a brief trip to rehab that confirms she is bipolar, not simply difficult. The point at which she vanishes then triggers the real message of the movie. When Libba tries to find her, she hits walls everywhere. The police don't care. She can't get any records that might help her track whatever life this homeless and penniless woman might have fallen into.
So Libba goes indy. She opens her own operation, Outpost for Hope, to help some of the hundreds of thousands of people and families in similar situations. As "Bringing Ashley Home" becomes more Libba's story than Ashley's, it develops some modest but nice subtleties - thanks in part to a fine performance by Cook. Libba isn't simply a Samaritan. She has her own flaws and she pays the price for her own choices. She also doesn't solve everyone's problems.

Written by Production. I will literally never be the same after watching this movie. I have yet to come across one so powerful and emotional. I am still in tears.
