The Notebook is considered one of the best romance films ever made. An adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s famous novel, the iconic love story between Noah and Allie has made us swoon since 2004. But like many other films, upon re-watching the movie as an adult, you notice things you failed to acknowledge before.

The Gorgeous Scenery

When you’re watching The Notebook for the first time, you’re focusing on the story. Upon re-watching, you might notice the gorgeous scenery. Filmed mostly in Charleston, South Carolina, the movie features moss dripping off old oak trees, marsh-lined rivers, and stunning sunsets. The Notebook proves Charleston is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States.

The Cheap Real Estate

As you re-watch the film, you’ll notice how inexpensive the real estate was in 1940. The iconic white house with blue shutters was sold for just $45,000. Yes, this was a different time period, but if you want to buy a house like that in today’s market, expect to pay over $2 million.
