You’re looking for “Stranger Things” filming locations? You’re in the right place.
First, though: As a rule, I don’t binge shows, films or albums when they’re first released. I’m not sure how or when it started, but I’ve always put a good bit of distance between myself and new media, allowing the shine and hype to wear off before slowly digesting it and forming an opinion. “Stranger Things” is the exception to this rule. Within days of its release, I voraciously binged the entire first season, drawn to the show’s ominous and rhythmic synth soundtrack and complex yet approachable storyline. And I’m not alone. The sci-fi dramedy is essentially a love letter to the 1980s and is wildly popular among everyone from Boomers to Zoomers.
While “Stranger Things” is set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Ind., much of the series is filmed in Atlanta and the surrounding suburbs. As we anxiously await the fifth and final season, the most excited (or least patient) of us can book a ticket to Georgia, check into a hotel and explore some of the most interesting “Stranger Things” filming locations. While you won’t get trapped in the Upside Down, this list does contain spoilers, so proceed with caution.
