Real-Life Holiday Movie Locations

by Jennifer M. Wood


Seneca Falls, NY

Frank Capra may have shot Its a Wonderful Life on an RKO sound stage in Los Angeles, but the fine folks of Seneca Falls, New York swear that their five-square-mile upstate hamlet is the inspiration for the real Bedford Falls. And each December, they host an array of old-timey activities to prove it. On the docket for this years festivities are special screenings of the Oscar-nominated holiday classic, winter walking tours, caroling, guest appearances by Zuzu and Janie Bailey, Uncle Billys Wonderful Scavenger Hunt, and a Dance By the Light of the Moon & Swing Contest.
