Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens
Film Sets of South Carolina
Did you know South Carolina is a popular filming spot for all sorts of movies, soap operas, reality TV, and television series? Here are a few you may – or may not have – noticed:
A U.S. Historic district in Mt. Pleasant, the antebellum Boone Hall served as a background for television shows like "Days of our Lives" and "North and South."
Movies filmed at this historic home found on the National Register of Historic Places include "Queen," "Bin Yah," and – wait for it, ladies – "The Notebook."
Fans of the 1980s dramedy “The Big Chill” – or maybe just fans of a young Jeff Goldblum – can head to Beaufort on the South Carolina Coast for a look at the iconic antebellum home where the movie was filmed.
It’s a private residence, but you can still drive by along Highway 21 before hitting Broomfield Creek.
Known locally as Pelicans Ballpark, TicketReturn.com Field was the filming site for the good chunk of the "Eastbound & Down" third season.
Here the ever-abrasive Kenny Powers – played by Danny McBride – was pitcher for the minor league Myrtle Beach Mermen.
MCRD Parris Island
The Military College of South Carolina also provides a great film setting for some war movies, political dramas, reality TV, and more – all in Charleston.
The Citadel created the backdrop for movies like "Dear John" and "For the Boys," and television shows like "Columbo," "House of Cards," and "Army Wives" – not to mention the "American Baby" music video for Dave Matthews Band.
Set on Parris Island, the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Port Royal was depicted in Jack Webb’s "The D.I." and Stanley Kubrick’s "Full Metal Jacket" – plus an episode of "JAG" which may go without saying.
