The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

'Midnight in Paris'

Though Woody Allen has long been considered the quintessential New York director, his recent movies have been set in London, Barcelona, Spain and Paris. The City of Light has given the 76-year-old filmmaker the biggest hit of his long career with 2011's acclaimed "Midnight in Paris." Owen Wilson plays a screenwriter and Rachel McAdams is his fiancée who have two vastly different experiences when they travel to Paris. He wants to stay in Paris to finish his first novel; she wants to live in Malibu. His life changes one midnight while roaming the city when he is invited to join the passengers in an antique car that pulls up next to him. Soon, he is swept up in the romance of Paris of the 1920s.
