· Written by


1. King’s Landing, Game of Thrones

King's Landing, Game of Thrones

If you’re going to be living in wildly violent times, you might as well do it in somewhere as gorgeous as King’s Landing.

2. Hogwarts, The Harry Potter Series

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

If you aren’t still waiting for your acceptance letter you’ve simply given up on your dreams. The one in Orlando is pretty darn cool, but it’s not actually a school, it’s just some cheesy little ride. *sighs*

3. South Park, South Park

South Park, South Park

OK, so there really is a place called South Park, Colorado, but it’s not like we can go to the cartoon one…

4. Atlantis, Atlantis: The Lost Empire

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

Atlantis is an island beneath the ocean. It’s gorgeous and I’m pretty sure you could lay out without getting a sunburn there.

5. Who-ville, How The Grinch Stole Christmas

Who-ville, How The Grinch Stole Christmas

There’s not much to complain about in a town as happy as Who-ville! It’s a grammar geeks dream, lots of rhyming, so many puns to be made!

6. Emerald City, The Wizard of Oz

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

The glistening gold of the yellow brick road leading into the gorgeously green Emerald city is captivating and seems like a wonderful place to live!

7. The Island, Lost

The Island, Lost

While you might not want to be stranded there forever, a nice extended vacation would suffice.

8. Neverland, Peter Pan

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

It’s a place filled with adventure, mermaids, and fairies! However, the best part is that YOU NEVER HAVE TO GROW UP! Sign me up please.

9. Bikini Bottom, Spongebob Squarepants

Bikini Bottom, Spongebob Squarepants

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea!? Well damn. I wish it was me!

10. The Shire, The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

With all the natural beauty and peacefulness of the shire, who could blame Bilbo Baggins for not wanting to leave?

11. Halloween Town, The Nightmare Before Christmas

Halloween Town, The Nightmare Before Christmas

Is Halloween your favorite holiday? Well then living in Halloween Town with Jack Skellington must sound like a wonderful plan!

12. Storybrooke, Once Upon A Time

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

Maybe not at first when it was a town under a curse, but afterwards it seems pretty awesome to live in a town with all of those fairytale characters!

13. Cloud City, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Cloud City, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

This is pretty self explanatory, don’t you think? Living in the clouds? Awesome.

14. Narnia, The Chronicles of Narnia Series

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

First things first, you go through a secret wardrobe to get to Narnia. If that weren’t enough to make you want to live there, don’t forget about the majestic scenery and talking animals!

15. Stars Hollow, Gilmore Girls

Stars Hollow, Gilmore Girls

You know you’re still wishing you could grab a coffee from Luke or study for finals with Rory in Stars Hollow.

16. Tree Hill, One Tree Hill

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

A small town filled with drama, gorgeous people, and an awesome basketball court, what more could you want?
(PS – you could always just move to Wilmington, NC but it’s not quite the same thing.)

17. Orbit City, The Jetsons

Orbit City, The Jetsons

Housekeepers on wheels and giant floating buildings? I mean, I don’t know about you but I’m ready for my floating car.

18. Arendelle, Frozen

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

The fabulous Queen Elsa of Arendelle can help cool you down when things get too hot in the summer! If you love skiing, snow, and all things winter this is an ideal place for you to live.

19. Pawnee, Parks and Recreation

Pawnee, Parks and Recreation

There might be an abundance of scary raccoons and people that are pretty overweight and opinionated, but anywhere that Leslie Knope is planning events and eating waffles at JJ’s Diner is I want to be.

20. TARDIS, Doctor Who

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

Helllooooo you can travel through time (and space)! Enough said.

21. Hundred Acre Wood, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

Hundred Acre Wood, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

A pretty peaceful town filled with great animal friends, specifically Winnie the Pooh. You could live off of honey and vegetables from Rabbit’s garden! Easy decision.

22. Quahog, Family Guy

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

Quahog seems like a lot of fun! Lots of nonsense goes on with Peter Griffin and if all else fails you could always grab a beer and chill at the The Drunken Clam.

23. Pandora, Avatar

Pandora, Avatar

Pandora is probably a combination of all of the most beautiful places you could think of rolled up into one glowing, fantastic location. Luckily we’ll soon be able to visit a recreation of the planet at Disney’s animal kingdom!

24. Wonderland, Alice in Wonderland

26 Fictional Places You Wish You Could Live

Care to spend a day among the flowers? Maybe you’d rather celebrate a very merry unbirthday at a tea party? Or you could battle it out with the Queen of Hearts! Wonderland is the place to be.

25. Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Settle in for some good advice, snacks, nap time, and bonding time with good ol’ Mister Rogers! Seems like a very lovely place to live.
