“Stranger Things” filming guide
The new season of Stranger Things may take place in Indiana, Russia and California, but fans shouldn’t go there to see the real filming locations.
The power of film magic has turned these places into the most recognizable places in “Strange Things.”
The famous Hawkins, Indiana, is actually a city southeast of Atlanta called Jackson, Georgia.
The city is just 40 miles south of Atlanta and offers the amenities of a big city with the charm of a small town.
Visitors to Jackson can take a stroll through downtown Hawkins, where you can see Melvald’s General Store and radio clothing.
Other locations where previous seasons were filmed in Georgia include Palmetto, Georgia, Bradley’s Big Buy, where Eleven steals Eggo’s waffles, as well as Emiar University’s Briarcliff, which was used to film Hawkins National Laboratory. Some of the character’s homes in the show are real homes that can be found in East Point, Georgia.
In the fourth season, the show takes place in Russia. Eastern European country Lithuania means country. In particular, they filmed future prison scenes in Vilnius, in the century-old Lukiškės prison.
The prison is now a tourist attraction and can be booked as an Airbnb.
In the fourth season, Eleven and the Byers family moved to California, but no scenes were filmed there.
New Mexico was the site of the Golden State. Lenora Hills High School is actually Eldorado High School. Filming also took place at the Roller King in Albuquerque, while others were filmed in and around the small town of Los Lunas, New Mexico.
The fourth thing Season 4 starts on Netflix in 2022. May 27
