You got it. Central Park.

Literally, hundreds of films have been shot in this iconic location going back as far as 1908. Possibly even farther back.

This flick from Central Park is one of my favorites.

Now, let's go west for a minute.

Can you hear the "Rocky" theme in your head?

The Philadelphia Museum of Arts is PA's most filmed location.

The "Rocky" franchise wasn't the only series of movies filmed at this Philadelphia landmark.

Remember "Shazam"?

How about "Dressed To Kill"?

Both were filmed at the Museum.

Time to recognize New Jersey.

It's actually the Princeton University campus.

One of my favorite movies of all time was set at Princeton.

If you haven't seen "A Beautiful Mind," watch it as soon as you can.

According to a blog from Princeton University, one of the first dialogue films was shot at Princeton in 1929.

There was also "I.Q." from 1994 starring Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins. A friend of mine was actually in this movie.

In 1998 Princeton was the location for "One True Thing" with Meryl Streep and Renee Zellweger.

Remember "Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen" with Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox?

Parts of that film were shot at New Jersey's Princeton University.

LOOK: See America's 50 Best Beach Towns

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
