Georgia seems to be a hub for filming movies and hit television shows. There's just something so thrilling about road tripping to these spots and standing in the exact same places as your favorite characters that you've swooned over. Many of the hit show The Vampire Diaries filming locations happen to be here in Georgia as well, and you can actually go visit them. 

Along with TVD, the spin-off shows The Originals and Legacies were also filmed in the same locations. Most of these spots were filmed in Covington, Georgia, and surrounding cities. You can also go on a tour for $55 if you don't want to go on a self-guided tour. 

Elena Gilbert's home

Address: 2104 Floyd St. N.E., Covington, GA

Why You Need To Go: Season four hit many fans hard after Elena turned her emotions off, but don't worry, the house is actually still standing. You can't go inside, but seeing the outside and that famous wrap-around porch will suffice.

The Clock Tower

Address: 2101 Washington St. S.W., Covington, GA

Why You Need To Go: This is the tower that Katherine was ready to jump right off of. It's located right on the Covington Square and is a very popular spot to take photos.

Whitmore College

Address: 801 Emory St., Oxford, GA

Why You Need To Go: This is actually Oxford College of Emory University that is located in Oxford, Georgia. We see this college all throughout season five. The campus is very beautiful and worth a little road trip to.

The Lockwood Mansion

Address: 2111 Anderson Ave., Covington, GA

Why You Need To Go: This mansion is absolutely beautiful and visitors are more than welcome to drive past and admire the beauty. If you want to walk and tour the grounds, you can take the guided tour and get exclusive access.

The Whitmore College Frat House

Address: 1008 N. Emory St., Oxford, GA

Why You Need To Go: This is where viewers see Damon trying to teach Elena how to feed on humans at your typical frat party. While it might not be an actual fraternity house, it is a historic Greek Revival house, so they had the right idea.

The Square

Address: 2101 Washington St. S.W., Covington, GA

Why You Need To Go: You can walk in the same spots as all your favorite characters and even see if you can find Sheriff Forbes' bench. This is where all the big scenes happened and a great spot to sit and have a picnic (when there isn't filming going on).

Mystic Grill

Price: 💸💸

Address: 1116 Clark St. S.W., Covington, GA

Why You Need To Go: You must stop and eat at Mystic Grill just because of how iconic it is. It looks a little different on the inside, but the food is so good. You can even walk down the stairs to the alleyway where a few vamps were staked.
