If you are visiting this site, than you must be a Vampire Diaries fan, or, you just happened to find this website and don’t have a clue what you’re doing here, that’s okay too!
As most of you know Mystic Falls, Virginia is a fictional town where vampires, werewolves, witches, hybrids, and vampire hunters roam under everyone’s noses. Oh yes, I forgot to mention, ghost too. This beautiful city is actually located in Covington, Georgia, about thirty miles East of Atlanta. Most of The Vampire Diaries was filmed here, although some locations can be found scattered around Atlanta or at their Decatur studio. I, myself, have been out to ‘Mystic Falls’ more than I'll ever care to admit and I’ve found most of the locations they used to film, such as:
The Mystic Falls Court House/Jail & Sheriff Forbes office
Mystic Falls High School
The Mystic Grill
Dr. Greyson Gilberts Office
The Rooftop used during Vicki's struggle in Season I
The Crash Scene from Season I
The Lockwood Mansion
The Lockwood Flashback Mansion
Elena Gilberts House
Caroline Forbes House
Grams (Bonnie's Grandmother) House
Isobel’s Estate [Season II]
The Witches Burial Grounds
Mystic Falls Graveyard
The Site of Damon & Stefan’s transformation
Those are just some of the amazing spots listed that you can find in Covington or around Atlanta. As a longtime fan - episode 1 to be exact - I have thoroughly enjoyed visiting these different locations, watching them film, and at times giving tours to other wonderful fans. I strongly believe that every fan should have the opportunity to visit the sets first hand for FREE!
So lets take an adventure, shall we? PS: Don't forget your vervain at home.
