I don’t know if you would call me a restaurant, hotel, or movie groupie. In reality, I am none of the above. I am a travel groupie with an insatiable curiosity…one who likes to check out places where some of my favorite movies were filmed. Come, take a peek with me at places where I slept, ate, drank, and followed the stars.
QUEEN MARY: The Queen Mary was my raison de etre (reason for being) in Long Beach. Although I have sailed on some 140 cruises, the sight of a cruise ship still ignites concupiscent feelings in me. And, although she no longer sails, the Queen Mary still takes me away. Once the largest luxury liner afloat, the Queen Mary has been Long Beach’s flagship attraction since its final voyage in 1967. Once a World War II troops ship bigger than the Titanic, the Queen Mary is now a hotel where a restaurant scene from Robert Redford’s “The Natural” was shot.
