It’s too early to leave the house yet, but it’s not too early to start daydreaming about it! While we binge watch our way through this time of self-isolation, the locations on the screen start to look pretty appealing.
Here are some movies to get you through the cabin fever and help you plan your escape. No need to visit Hollywood for this movie magic though, these famous films were shot right here on Whidbey Island!
