I recently wrote a post for called Vacation on Location: 5 Famous Film Locations. In it, I wrote about the setting of the film The Truman Show.  Though it isn’t my favorite Jim Carey film (I prefer Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), I loved the setting and was surprised to learn that the white-washed, white-sand beach town in the movie wasn’t a Hollywood set but a real “master-planned community” in Panama City Beach, Florida.
