The word “whimsical” doesn’t even begin to describe the romantic summer adventures of Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" protagonists, Suzy and Sam. There’s something iconic and magical about summers in New England. Do your best to recreate the feel from the movie at the film's prettiest filming locations!

Camp Yawgoog in Hopkinton served as the filming location for Khaki Scouts' Camp Ivanhoe. Unfortunately, their epic treehouse isn't real, and Ed Norton isn't the scoutmaster. But, a few local scouts were even used as extras in the film.

Point Judith Lighthouse is a classic lighthouse that has been keeping the coast safe (and looking incredibly beautiful) since 1854. It was automated 100 years later, in 1954, only a few years before the movie was set!

A beautiful former Jamestown lighthouse was used as the Bishop home exterior. Conanicut Point Light was built in 1886 and is registered as a National Historic Place.

The inspiration for the Bishop home’s interior comes from Clingstone (AKA “The House on the Rock”) in Narragansett Bay (specifically its interior shingles).

Yet another picture-perfect lighthouse: Castle Hill Lighthouse, is sadly not open to the public, but the grounds are easily accessible by footpaths in the area, but to be honest, the exterior is the prettiest part.

Moonrise Kingdom is a love-letter to Rhode Island and an impassioned tribute to childhood crushes, camp adventures, star-crossed lovers, and the sense of fulfillment that comes with following your heart. Plus, every shot is postcard-worthy...what more reason do you need to visit?
