Three’s Company

The apartment exterior seen in the first three seasons of the 70s / 80s sitcom “Three’s Company” can be found in Santa Monica, California.  The building, which is actually a house, is tucked away behind tall shrubs and a fenced gate, but at the right angle, you can still manage a good view.  The property still mostly resembles how it appeared on the show.


LOCATION: 2912 4th St, Santa Monica, CA 90405

The opening credits for season 4 were filmed at the Santa Monica Pier.  John Ritter can be seen riding this carousel, which is still in operation.  This same location was featured in the film “The Net.”


LOCATION: 200 Santa Monica Pier, Santa Monica, CA 90401

The cast is seen walking near the entrance of the pier.  The building on the right is where the carousel is located.  The same building was seen in the 1961 Dennis Hopper film “Night Tide.”


Step By Step

The 90s sitcom “Step By Step,” starring Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers, was a staple of the “TGIF” line-up, which also included “Full House,” “Perfect Strangers,” “Family Matters” and more.  While set in the town from Port Washington, Wisconsin, the house from the show can be found in South Pasadena, California.  It was of course only used as an exterior shot, with all interiors filmed on a studio stage.  Also, in case you’re wondering, the theme park from the opening credits is likewise in California, at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia.
