Have you ever randomly bumped into a celebrity on the street?  Most people would probably say no so I'm here to help you reach some bucket list goals!

The most popular states in the country to spot a celebrity are New York and California.  Of course, Hollywood is in California and New York has Broadway Stars so you're bound to see at least one celebrity if you ever visited!


Atlanta, Georgia is also a great place to visit if you're celebrity chasing! Stranger Things, The Walking Dead, Hunger Games, The Vampire Diaries, Ozark, and Cobra Kai were all filmed at some point in Atlanta!  This is an amazing city to start an acting career.


Las Vegas might be an option for celebrity sightings because it's the city that never sleeps!  There are always concerts, magic shows, and winners from America's Got Talent performing around the city.  If you're lucky, you might be the hotel neighbor to Katy Perry or Shania Twain!
