A Christmas Story Filming Locations – Cleveland and Ontario, Canada 1983

Have you ever wondered “where is the house from A Christmas Story?

Where is the tongue and flagpole scene filmed?

What School do the boys go to?

We’ve gathered a few locations here and added google street-view for better enjoyment.

First stop on the Christmas Story tour is: The Parker Family Home aka The Christmas Story house.

Literally, the most famous house in Cleveland, Ohio is the house from The Christmas Story movie. In late 2004 the house was bought and restored to exactly what it looked like in the movie.

“Wouldn’t it be cool if you could stay in the house from A Christmas Story”

Now, with the help of Airbnb, you can spend the night in the classic home. Visit the Christmas Story House Website here:

The next stop on the Christmas Story movie tour is The Shopping Mall seen in the film.

Santa Clause tells pour little Ralphy “You’re gonna shoot your eye out kid” at the world famous Higbee’s in Cleveland. This is also where the “Beebee-Gun in the window” scenes were filmed.
