Pioneertown

Founded in 1946 by actor Dick Curtis - famous for playing the villain in a host of early westerns - as an 1880s themed living movie set. Hundreds of television shows and movies have been filmed here since.

The town has a population of 420 and it's occasionally possible to stay overnight (check Airbnb). Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace is a popular music venue on the edge of town that occasionally attracts surprise performances by big name stars.
