Sometimes it isn't necessary to travel around, because you can see in movies popular places, buildings, statues, etc. Allowed for suggestions are movies with exact sightseeing elements or movies with theatre stages that clearly show specific sightseeing elements. What movies inspires you the most to travel around and do some sightseeing?

Good idea and a good variety of places.

In the question I think this version is better:

Which movie inspires you the most to travel around and do some sightseeing?

And a typo in no. 28:
Smithsonian

Sorry for Smith(s)onian. ;D
I corrected it and also have taken the better formulation for the question.

The Belfrey, the canal tours, the Groening museum, the Basilica of Holy Blood were all in the movie, then finish it off with the brewery tour

Rob Webster, I just fished your comment from a SPAM filter. Perhaps it sounded too catchy and AI thought it looked suspicious. :)

Image result for statue of liberty planet of apes
Image result for mount rushmore north by northwest

I like the idea and execution for the most part, but don't understand why an image poll wouldn't be the logical choice here. I also disagree with the omission of the more iconic scenes from Planet of the Apes (1968) or North by Northwest (1959).
  1. Vote!

    The Day After Tomorrow (2004) New York: Miss Liberty - Suggested by blackbolt-3

  2. Vote!

    National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) Keystone: Mount Rushmore National Memorial - Suggested by blackbolt-3

Yes, you're right. An Image poll may have been more visually powered. But now it's already a title poll. Too late to Change. The main Problem sometimes  is to find the right Images. Some gallerys burst from the many premiere Images and title Pictures, but have only some or even no single Image of the movie. So I decided to take the titles. But yes - you're right.
