LAMP Travel Series presents

California Sites and Attractions
as part of the LAMP Dealer and Travel Map

Since California is the heart of the movie industry, there are filming locations everywhere. The diversity of types of locations are mind boggling... from the mountainous areas where films like High Sierra, Star Trek V, Temple of Doom, Golden Child, etc. to the Mojave Desert where other countries and worlds were created like.. Star Wars, Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind, Lawrence of Arabia, Spartacus. Almost every corner, city, park, nook or cranny has been used for a film of SOME kind!

So we'll try to hit some highlights for you with some areas that you might not normally hear about. There could easily be several books about just some of the sites.
