• Restaurants made famous by film that tourists can visit

    2014-03-04

    Movies have the power to radically alter the ways in which travelers approach their vacations, whether tourists are fighting for a chance to visit Bilbo Baggins' home from "Lord of the Rings," or they're vying for the same view Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan shared from the top of the Empire State Building in "Sleepless in Seattle." While some locations dread the added tourist attention brought by these films, others have embraced their newly achieved fame.

    Katz's Delicatessen, New York
    United States travel enthusiasts who are already visiting New York should stop by Katz's Delicatessen, star of the most iconic moment from the film "When Harry Met Sally." The eatery, which opened in 1888, celebrates its rich history, boasting that it was not only featured in the Academy Award-nominated film, but has seen three depressions and two World Wars yet still remains strong, according to its website.

    Kansas City Barbeque, San Diego
    Once a small bar hidden in a corner of San Diego, Kansas City Barbeque rose to fame when a "Top Gun" location director asked owners if the film could shoot a few scenes in the restaurant, according to its website. Since then, the bar has banked on its filmography, selling promotional items - such as "Top Gun" hats and shirts - and stressing its connection to the film to all tourists who visit the area.
