E.T., Elliott's House
The SFV would have become world-famous even without the help of one extraterrestrial, but E.T. sure helped this L.A. County region seal its place in film history. This Spanish-style house with the terracotta-tiled roof is the home of E.T.'s boy savior, Elliot. Director Steven Spielberg specifically chose this house because it was framed by a magnificent mountain backdrop. The house is privately owned so keep a respectful distance and don't linger too long.
