The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

There are vacation tours for just about any hobby or obsession. Oenophiles can visit countless wineries in Napa Valley and Sonoma; beer fans can take a tour of nearly any of the breweries that concoct their favorite beverage. You can go on cheese factory tours in Wisconsin, baseball park tours, or "coffee shop" tours in Amsterdam. Naturally, there are scads of tours for movie fans, from those janky tours of famous people's houses to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery walking tour. Some of the below are pricey guided tours, and some are DIY, but chances are there's a tour that is perfect for your own personal pilgrimage.

There are, of course, Harry Potter tours, Sex and the City outings, and Twilight adventures, but these are a little more off the beaten path.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Tours

Those who have read the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson know that he went into copious, umlaut-laden detail about the locations in his books. According to MSNBC, you take a guided tour to see Lisbeth's favorite hangout, Mikael Blomkvist's apartment, and the different neighborhoods where the characters live, as well as other places that are mentioned in the films and books. Interestingly enough, what they won't find is Hedestad, where Blomkvist investigates the disappearance of Harriet Vanger in the first book of the trilogy. The small town of Gnesta stands in for Hedestad in Dragon Tattoo, although you can tour that as well. You can also pick up a map that has all the nitty-gritty deets from the books to choose your own adventure.
