Have a hot day and need to stop for a cold one. Then the North Point Tavern is somewhere to go. Where is it located? How about Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. If you're not in the area and need a drink, fly in. Fares are cheap these days.

Cheers Boston Beacon Hill

They say that art (TV, movies, etc) imitates real life. Well here's a case where real life has imitated art. When the TV show Cheers aired, the exterior shots of the bar were filmed at a bar in Boston called the Bull & Finch Pub that opened in 1969. The Cheers signs were put up for filming the exterior shots. The TV show Cheers may only be in syndication, but the owners of the Bull & Finch have changed the name and exterior signage to the Cheers signage we've seen on the TV show. I can almost hear Norm ordering a beer, and Cliff's long-winded trivia. 07-07

Check out the familiar entrance to the place "where everybody knows your name." This Cheers in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace features an actual replica of the famous Cheers bar from the TV series of the same name.
