We've all been there. You start planning a fun-filled getaway for you and your family — or a romantic one with that special somebody! — but it just feels like the same old, same old.
Then it's time to take a tip from Hollywood! Jazz up your next vacation with a little inspiration from these big-screen classics…
1. Fargo – Fargo, North Dakota
Who says it's more fun in the sun? Follow the Coen brothers north and get a taste of the annual Winter Carnival (and maybe some Arby's), which dates back to 1928. We betcha you'll love it!

2. Hoosiers – Milan, Indiana
Don't let the small size fool you — this town's some 2,000 residents know how to party! Watch some hoops, shuck some corn and wonder why you didn't come sooner. (Just be careful of those farmers' daughters, boys — their dads aren't afraid to use pitchforks!)

3. The Hurt Locker – Baghdad, Iraq
They didn't nickname this place the "Cradle of Civilization" for nothing! Featuring plenty of abandoned palaces where you can unwind in style, this is one vacation you won't want to cut and run from.

4. The Silence of the Lambs – Baltimore, Maryland
Hannibal Lecter's asylum digs here may not suit your tastes (I know, I know…), but there's plenty more to check out! From beautiful oceanside views to first-class dining, this city is culturally rich — but you don't have to be!
