4 Places From 'Stranger Things' You Can Actually Visit

On a scale of 1-10, these spots are an 11.

Season three of Stranger Things hits on July 4, and like many people, I cannot wait. The show—a sci-fi homage to '80s filmmaking, which follows a group of high school kids as they battle otherworldly creatures—is set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. So while you may not be able to totally immerse yourself where Eleven, Dustin, and the crew hang out, you can make a trip to Georgia and visit a few places where the series has filmed (check out even more on ). If you can't make it to Georgia anytime soon, check out the video above, and see how you can get a taste of Stranger Things no matter where you are.

But what we know to be the Hawk Theater is actually a Tavern in real life. looks nothing like the theater in the show, but it's a great place to snag fried cheesecake—and maybe some hot gossip on what it was like when the crew was around, if anyone's willing to talk.
