Movies That Inspired Travel in 2013
With award season here, we picked the year’s most wanderlust-stirring movies. From The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to Before Midnight, these films moved us all over the world.
The Great Gatsby, Long Island, NY
This much-buzzed-about Baz Luhrmann film adaptation of literary classic The Great Gatsby spurred a huge interest this year in Long Island’s Gold Coast, where Gatsby lived in his lavish West Egg mansion. Everyone went gaga for Gatsby this year, including New York’s iconic Plaza Hotel, which invited guests to travel “ceaselessly back into the past” of the opulent Jazz era with their new Gatsby-inspired Fitzgerald Suite.
