A Christmas Story House Tour

If going to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is not enough of a reason to visit Cleveland, Ohio, then I suggest going to Ralphie Parker’s home. Yes, the actual house from the film, A Christmas Story, is open for interactive tours. After filming for the movie finished, the house went back to being a real home. In 2006, the house was open to the public as museum. The interiors were recreated to look almost identical to what you see in the film. The attention to detail is incredible. Honestly, if I had to choose between the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Parker family home, I’d choose A Christmas Story house!

    What a cool place to visit.
    Great holiday movie.
    And to this day, I believe the Leg Lamp’s appeal would still be hotly debated between couples.
    Of course they could still agree on its kitsch factor.
    Cuz yowza!
