The rented house is in Redington Beach, on Gulf Boulevard (naturally) in the vicinity of 160th Avenue.

The drawbridge scenes were filmed at John's Pass (between Madeira Beach and Treasure Island), and the posh restaurant is in Madeira Beach on Gulf Boulevard at approximately 13th Avenue. [Thanks to Brian Egan]

The Beach Theater at 315 Corey Avenue is the movie theater that the family goes to and they forget to bring money. [Thanks to Lyman Sadlick]

In the first part of the movie when John Candy is driving to work it is clear that he is driving into Atlanta on the downtown connector at I-20 & I-75 in downtown Atlanta. [Thanks to Christopher]

Other locations include, Scully's Restaurant, Billy's Stone Crab in Tierra Verde, Florida. [Thanks to The Barnacle]

I've been to all the filming locations of the movie "Summer rental". And I discovered a jewel today while jogging. I live 20 mintues from here, and I had a hunch it was in this area. I found the house where the family first show's up to, but have the wrong adress. They are asked to leave by the right owners that night. The location is 18220 Sunset blvd, Redington shores floria 33708. This info is 100 percent. I took pictures of the exterior, New siding has been installed to the house but same structure. And both houses on either side are still there. [Thanks to Ricky Matt]

Can you help? Do you know any of the St. Petersburg, Florida (or any other) filming locations used for Summer Rental, particularly Scully's restaurant? [Please send them in]
