In 2001 I was visiting a sick relative in Gainesville, Florida. During my visit my husband and I decided to see The Fast and the Furious movie. I was in my 20s and had never seen a movie with so much action involving cars. Now my husband goes out to San Diego quite often with work; therefore, I made it a point to knock some of The Fast and the Furious movie locations from my bucket list.
The Toretto Home
The first of The Fast and the Furious movie locations that I had the chance to see in Los Angeles was the Toretto home. The house is in Echo Park. There are signs around the house that warn inquirers to keep out. I am not surprised to hear tourists and excited fans like myself just walk up onto the property without permission. The film makes the street appear broad, but there are homes on both sides of the road with no more than usual driving space.
The Toretto Market
The second movie location my family and I came across was the Toretto’s Market which is Bob’s Market. It was right around the corner from the Toretto home in Echo Park. I expected to see a parking lot outside of the market, but there wasn’t one. The store sat on a corner off the main road. Locals were walking in and out as we parked across the street to take some pictures as shown here.
The Fast and the Furious movie location I didn’t think I’d get to see was the infamous Neptune’s Net. My family and I drove up the Pacific Coast Highway to Malibu where it is located. The vibe is fantastic, and it was good food. We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance. The entire restaurant was full, and everyone there seemed to enjoy the seafood and the warm weather.
Forest Lawn Cemetery
Last year we visited the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. Many people are buried here including Paul Walker. I researched the beautiful cemetery before taking the drive to Hollywood Hills. There are many burial sites you can find by visiting the Forest Lawn Cemetery website.
I have loved to travel ever since I was nineteen. Once I started discovering various cultures and so many great places to see there was no turning back for me. Traveling Planning is a must for me these days. It’s all about getting out there and experiencing life. If you’re planning a trip to San Diego, I suggest visiting My 5 San Diego Favorites.
