You simply can’t beat an all-star cast, especially not when said cast includes the likes of Meryl Streep, Emma Watson and Laura Dern. Little Women was originally a novel written by Louisa May Alcott in 1898, which has since been adapted to film no less than six times (and counting). It follows the story of four sisters coming of age during the aftermath of the American Civil War, and the crew rolled back the clock by 150 years in Boston’s Back Bay to achieve the required period aesthetic for the film.

Why You Should Visit
On the pretty streets of Boston you can lose yourself in one of the most historic cities in the United States. Fondly referred to as “The Cradle of Modern America”, Boston is the home of the American Revolution as well as one of the most famous universities in the world: Harvard. You can visit Harvard’s beautiful Arnold Arboretum, one of the main filming locations for Little Women, and wander amongst its collection of trees, shrubs and woody vines, all the while pretending you’re wearing pretty frocks and petticoats or stovepipe hats and pinstripe suits.
