U.S. Towns That Look Like You've Stepped Into Your Favorite Fall Film
Steeped in legend and history, the Witch City has been the setting of various spooky films, many of which were filmed there — most famously "Hocus Pocus."
Salem, Massachusetts
A walk through the witchy town is like a "Hocus Pocus" tour. Adam Sandler's "Hubie Halloween" was also set here, but the only scene filmed in the town involved the Witch Museum.
Disney's "Halloweentown" franchise was shot in St. Helens, Oregon, and the cute town transforms back into the friendly monster town every spooky season.

Halloween reigns supreme, with haunted houses, spooky oddities, and museums. If you want the full "Halloweentown" experience, visit on a weekend when more attractions are open.
Though the plot of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is fictional, the town is not, and the legend's spirit is undeniable in this small town.
Sleepy Hollow, New York
The town and its residents have fully embraced the Headless Horseman as their mascot, with his images and statues holding a flaming jack-o'-lantern throughout the town.
Crossing the cemetery's replica of the "Sleepy Hollow" bridge with the leaves falling all around and the gravestones in the distance is quite a creepy experience.
While "The Proposal" isn't considered a fall movie, it was largely filmed in Rockport, which has the same quaint vibes as Ryan Reynolds' on-screen hometown.

The romantic comedy is set in Alaska, but the fall colors, rocky coastlines, and small collection of shops and businesses transport visitors into a scene from "The Proposal."
Probably the most iconic fall movie set in NYC is "Breakfast at Tiffany's," you can still visit many of the same places Audrey Hepburn's character did.
