In 2001 I was visiting relatives 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.
In July of 2017 I was in the Los Angeles area. During this trip I decided to include locating The Fast and the Furious movie locations into my list of places to go and things to see.
The Toretto Home
The first of The Fast and the Furious movie locations 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 the quaint seafood restaurant is located.
Neptune’s Net carries a beach vibe with all walk’s of life enjoying the same great 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
During another Los Angeles trip and after the passing of Paul Walker, my family and I visited the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills.
I researched the beautiful cemetery before taking the drive to Hollywood Hills. There are many burial sites located here and easy to locate by visiting either the Forest Lawn Cemetery website or local office.
