As I stated on the homepage, I will be giving you the different addresses to the different locations in Mystic Falls, Virginia. I would recommend using Googlemaps to further help you find these different locations if you're wanting to visit! I can promise you if you decide to visit Mystic Falls, these locations will be VERY easy to find.
**NOTE: The lighter words are links to the different locations on Googlemaps.com**
First things first, if you try and search for these locations in Mystic Falls, Virginia, you're going to find yourself very frustrated, because it doesn't actually exist. You're going to need to make your trip out to the Historic Downtown of Covington, Georgia.
If you're coming from Atlanta (West Bound) you're going to want to take the FIRST Covington exit (there are three). You will take exit 90 to merge onto U-278 E/Access RD and continue to follow that street for about a mile and a half. Turn Right onto Elm Street. Take the 3rd left onto Floyd Street and you should be in the square where you will quickly find The Mystic Falls Court House/Jail & Sheriff Forbes office, The Mystic Grill, Dr. Gilberts Office, and The Center of The Square (where Isobel told Elena, Damon is in love with her in Season II).
If you're going East Bound on I-20, you're going to need to take Covington Exit 92 Alcovy RD and turn left. You'll need to go about half a mile and then continue onto Elm Street NE. You will then turn left onto Floyd Street and you should be in the square where you will quickly find The Mystic Falls Court House/Jail & Sheriff Forbes office, The Mystic Grill, Dr. Gilberts Office, and The Center of The Square (where Isobel told Elena, Damon is in love with her in Season II).
This would be the best place to start your journey. As I stated above in the directions to get here, it has most of the main locations you'll need to visit. The Mystic Falls Court House/Jail & Sheriff Forbes Office will be very easy to spot. It's a huge brick building with a clock on the top. It's impossible to miss! As a matter of fact, it looks like this:
**You can see the corner of The Mystic Grill in the photo above**
Directly beside the above building, you will be able to find The Mystic Grill. It is a little green building that use to be a tax office. However, the beginning of 2014, The Grill opened into a bar and restaurant. It's a wonderful place to stop in for a bite to eat or a delicious mixed drink for those 21+. The inside is just as beautiful as the outside and the staff couldn't be friendlier. Besides, rumor has it that Damon (Ian Somerhalder) himself has stopped in for some food.
If you're standing outside of Scoops ice cream shop, facing the square, you'll need to look directly to your left, which is where you'll notice a familiar Doctors office which was used in Season I for Uncle John Gilbert to use The Gilbert Device to take down the vampires in Episode 22 "Founders Day". This was also the building that the tomb vampires burned in along with Mayor Lockwood. It is also the place in which Anna was staked. If you happen to come across this building while some of the blinds are open, you can take a peek inside and find different props used for the show. Usually props which are used when filming outside of The Mystic Grill.
Once you finish your journey through Mystic Falls town square, you will need to make your way past Scoops on College Ave SE. You will continue down this street until you come to a stop to either turn left or right onto East Street. Directly in front of you will be a house in the distance behind a large metal gate. This home should look very familiar to any Vampire Diaries fan. They've held a ton of parties here as well as a masquerade ball. You have found the Lockwood Mansion. Unfortunately you'll only be able to view this house at the gate due to it being a private residence, but even then, the view from the sidewalk is beautiful.

Once you've finished scoping out the Lockwood Mansion, you'll need to turn left and head up East Street NE where your next two stops will be right beside one another on Floyd Street. When you reach Floyd Street you will need to look at the house directly to your right. You will quickly realize that the house you're viewing is the one and only Gilbert house. Luckily, this house has been on sale for quite some time, so you should have no issue going onto the porch where the infamous Damon/Katherine & Damon/Elena kiss has taken place!

If you look to your left of the Gilbert house, you'll notice another familiar house from the show. A house in which belongs to Caroline Forbes. Unfortunately someone is currently residing within this home, so I wouldn't recommend climbing onto their porch, however you'll still be within arms length if you want to do a quick touch an run!

Once you're finished viewing these homes, you'll need to head back down East Street SE, passing the Lockwood Mansion once more. When you come to the stop sign on that street, you'll find yourself next to Conyers Street. Directly in front of you and to your right, you'll notice a large white estate that you may recognize from Season I. This beautiful estate belonged to Isobel (Elena's Biological mother). This house also has been taken off the market, so I don't recommend walking onto their property.
Right beside Isobel's estate and through a small patch of brush, you will find a little brown house. This small house belonged to Bonnie's grandmother Grams in Season I. This home has also been occupied, so I don't recommend walking onto their property.

After scanning over these homes, it's time to turn left and head down Conyers Street SE. As you make your way down this road, you will need to keep a look out on your right. You will quickly discover the Witches Burial Ground, and trust me, it's impossible to miss! **NOTE: This house no longer looks as it does in the picture below** You will notice the house is up a ways onto a hill with a long driveway. Unfortunately there are signs posted that say "No Trespassing". So unless those are taken down, you may not want to risk getting caught going up there. This location is a personal favorite of my own, as it looks so real and exactly as it does in the show.
Once you're done scoping out the locations above, it's time to head back toward the Mystic Falls Square on Conyers Street SE. You're going to continue down that street, passing Isobel's and Gram's home's. As you continue past those houses, you will notice a cemetery on your left. This is the cemetery that Isobel took her life in, as well as the place that Jon Gilbert and Aunt Jenna were buried. I do not have a picture to post yet, because for some reason I did not take one, however I will post a picture the next time I visit this town.
So, you've officially found all the locations within the Mystic Falls Square & most of the homes used in The Vampire Diaries. Now it's time to climb back into your car to make a couple more stops! You're going to need to get onto Church Street (beside Scoops) and follow it as it merges into Pace Street. You will need to follow this street until you come to some stop lights on 278. Once here, you will need to make a left turn and follow 278 until you come to Emory Street NW. This will be the first light you come to after turning onto 278. Make a right and you will notice a bar on your right. If you cross the train tracks, you've gone too far.
This is Bree's Bar. The place Damon took Elena to after her car crash in Season I episode 11 "Bloodlines". This bar is actually called Depot Country Station. I also have not snapped a picture of this location, but I will upload a picture after I take another visit to Mystic Falls.
After viewing Bree's Bar, you'll need to head back toward 278. Once at the light, you'll need to make a left turn back onto 278 and follow that road until you find Dr. M L King Jr. Ave. on Bypass RD. Here you will need to make a right turn and follow Dr. M L King Jr. Ave. into John R. Williams Hwy. You'll need to go past the Ford Dealership which will then merge back into Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. an eventually back into Covington Bypass RD. On your left you should notice some wooded area and a lake sitting behind it. This spot here is where Damon and Stefan made their transformation into vampires.
As I continue to lurk around Mystic Falls, Virginia, I will try and find new locations to help make your trip even more exciting! Besides, I've love to see more of these locations myself! As for a lot of the locations, they're not actually in Covington, but scattered around Atlanta, such as the Salvatore Boarding House which is actually located in Sandy Springs. Most of your trip can be made by foot once you arrive, if you park at the Square or at the Information building which I will talk more about on the "Most See Stops" page.
I hope this page has helped you and will help you find these different set locations for the next time you make a trip out to Covington, GA aka Mystic Falls, Virginia. It is worth the trip out there, not only for the Vampire Diaries set locations, but also to look around the beautiful town of Covington, Georgia itself.
