Last week our “Fighter” location map was featured on the Channel 5 news segment about the Oscar nominations for the filmed-in-Lowell movie, “The Fighter.” This week, Gadling, a national travel blog, includes the map on a post titled “A Travel Guide to the 2011 Oscar Movies”.
For those of you unfamiliar with Gadling, here’s how it describes itself:
Gadling is the world’s top travel blog, written and edited by passionate travelers and writers. Covering fun, interesting, and relevant travel, Gadling is the premiere source for everything from general travel news to highly specific travel tips, from budget travel to adventure travel — and for everything in between
In a post that makes recommendations about traveling to the locations of various Oscar-nominated films, Gadling says this about “The Fighter”:
The Fighter – Location: in the grand tradition of Oscar winners Good Will Hunting and The Departed, the Mark Wahlberg boxing flick was filmed in Massachusetts, in Micky Ward’s real hometown of Lowell, 30 miles north of Boston. Go there: For a map of locations in Lowell, check out this blog post and perhaps spot Micky Ward at the West End Gym
And of course, the link is to a recent blog post on this site that contained “The Fighter” map. Perhaps we’ll have our own segment on the Oscar telecast.
Thanks to reader John B for passing along the Gadling link.
