Spoilers ahead! If you haven't seen this 80's sci-fi classic, great scott!! Do not continue!

All of the following locations are located in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Taking in considering how spread out these locations are and the fact that you don't own a flying Delorean, where you're going... you'll need roads (and a vehicle).
