The Watershed Grill in Brackendale, B.C., plays Jack’s Bar

While this popular romance series is set in a fictional northern California town, it’s filmed in British Columbia. The mountainous backdrop and exterior of Jack’s Bar was shot at Brackendale’s Watershed Grill—and inside, it’s just as warm and inviting as its onscreen counterpart.

A Winners location in Toronto plays the Ben Snyder Department Store

Historic old Toronto is the perfect stand-in for 1950s Kentucky. The store selling the chess set Beth eyes in episode two and later buys with her tournament winnings is a Winners on Front St. E. Other picturesque landmarks nearby include the Gooderham (Flatiron) Building and the dog fountain in Berczy Park.

Like Anne, you too can run to the edge of P.E.I.’s red sandstone cliffs and bask in the beauty of the Atlantic Coast. There, you’ll find a magnificent 40-foot lighthouse, while the Anne of Green Gables Museum is just 10 minutes away by car.
