Superfan Travels America Visiting Every ‘Forrest Gump’ Location

From sea to shining sea. Literally.

If nothing else, Metaflix is passionate about movies, so naturally we’re down with anybody else who shares that passion too. Indeed, just imagine my excitement when I came across this video of a superfan (and possible certified nutjob!) who dared to do the unthinkable: go on a crazy cross-country adventure re-tracing the footsteps of Forrest Gump.

Per Adamthewoo’s description:

“My goal was to hunt down the filming locations from the 1994 film ‘Forrest Gump’ starring Tom Hanks. This consisted of traveling cross country to Georgia, South Carolina , Washington DC , Arizona, Utah and California . All in all I’d say it was a success. Thanks for running with me.”

Unbelievable. “Forrest Gump” is one of the greatest journey movies of all time—both historically and geographically—and I personally couldn’t be prouder of Adam for actually doing it in real life, all while capturing his incredible journey along the way.

With a 35 minute runtime, the video is a little longer than our usual features, but so very worth it. Accordingly, please embark on a (much briefer) journey of your own, or at the very least feel free to jump in and click around to spot your favorite scenes and shooting locations.
