The Film Commission often gets requests for locations that could be anywhere in the USA. Not the easiest thing to do in south Florida where the palm trees and tropical landscaping are hard to avoid. We have you covered with these options and more!
Abacoa in Jupiter
The neighborhood of Abacoa located in Jupiter is a perfect backdrop for residential driving scenes and small town America as well the look of “Anywhere, USA”, offering some streets without any palm trees. The houses could be categorized as a graceful southern style with batten board exteriors and welcoming porches. Central Boulevard in Jupiter offers long stretches of road that have live oaks that provide a nice canopy for driving scenes. If a dense landscape is required, Tonney Penna Drive offers a wide stretch of landscaping that is set back from the roadway which leaves a clear view of the sky for filming driving scenes with a Russian arm or a crane.
Boca Tierra Park
Established in the 1980s, the Millpond neighborhood has hills in Boca Tierra Park that help it convey an “Anywhere, USA” location. There are a few cabbage palms to avoid, but the wider paved walking trails make it a great option for a lifestyle backdrop for pushing strollers or a couple walking. Since it is one of the more established neighborhoods in the region, the mature trees cover the roadway and provide lots of shade to filter out the bright sun, allowing for a longer shooting day.
The Squire Course in PGA National
For golfing sequences that do not have palm trees, The Squire Course at the PGA National Resort and Spa is a terrific option. The club will allow a complete buyout of the course so filming can be completely private. A large stand of cedar trees offers a bright green backdrop in the spring and summer, while offering a bit of fall color in September and October. Their meticulously maintained greens are an ideal backdrop for high-end golf products and celebrity endorsements. For more, visit pbfilm.com.
