Rocky Movie Filming Locations

Rocky's Apartment

(Philadelphia) Rocky’s run-down street looks just as it does in the movie, tattered screen door and all. Not a great neighborhood, but the best place to down your eggs and start the morning run.

Mighty Mick's Gym

(Philadelphia) It’s Mickey Goldmill’s grungy gym near the pet shop, the spot where Rocky trains – and loses his locker.

Adrian's Pet Shop

(Philadelphia) Adrian’s pet shop – literally just a few steps away from Mighty Mick’s – has gotten dingier with the years. It was, for years, a real pet shop, but was closed in the mid 2000’s.

Rocky IV in Russia

(Wyoming) DRAGOOOOOOO! Jackson Hole, Wyoming stood in for snowy Russia when Rocky went to live on a rustic farm and train in the Siberian Wilderness for his fight with Drago.

The Rocky Steps

(Philadelphia) The Rocky steps. Enough said. There is not a single more iconic location for die-hard fans. Plus, the giant bronze Rocky statue lives here now, too!

Front Street Gym

(Philadelphia) This is the Philly boxing gym where Rocky Balboa trains Adonis in “Creed”. It’s also here that Sylvester Stallone’s most emotionally moving (and Oscar nominated) scene was filmed.

Demolished Ice Skating Rink

(Philadelphia) People standin’ on ice are more stupid. The empty lot where the old ice skating rink once stood. Rocky and Paulie visit this spot on a cold night in “Rocky Balboa”.

Andy's Bar

(Philadelphia) This bar across from Mighty Mick’s is where Rocky’s street fight with Tommy Gunn went down in “Rocky V”.

Robert’s School

(Philadelphia) The hard times of Rocky V sent Robert to his new elementary school here in Passyunk Square. Teach your kid to fight before you enroll him here.

Irish Pub

(Philadelphia) Thirsty? You can stop for a drink at the pub where “Baby Rocky” watched the computer fight between his dad and Mason Dixon.

Adrian’s Restaurant

(Philadelphia) Rocky’s little eatery is a real-life restaurant called The Victor Cafe. Stop in for an elegant dinner and you’ll find that the interior is much the same, despite Victor’s elegant operatic decor.

Pat’s King of Steaks

(Philadelphia) This Philly staple has been beloved by both cheesesteak fans and Rocky Balboa since 1930. Pat’s even has a plaque that marks the spot where Sly stood.

Atomic Hoagie Shop

(Philadelphia) This little shop was the hangout for Marie and the neighborhood kids in the ’70s; today, that street corner has been somewhat renovated and there ain’t no hoagie shop there.

The Philadelphia Zoo

Take ‘er to da zoo. Or propose to her here, in front of Mr. Tiger’s cage. Even if you’re not ready to propose, the Philly Zoo is an amazing place to visit, and one of the most popular in the city.

Independence Hall

(Philadelphia) Located in “Center City”, downtown Philly, Independence Hall is often referred to as the birthplace of America, but we like to think of it as the place where Rocky jumped the park bench.

Rocky’s Apartment

(Philadelphia) Rocky’s run-down street looks just as it does in the movie, tattered screen door and all. Not a great neighborhood, but the best place to down your eggs and start the morning run.

Ever wonder where Rocky really lived? Or where Adrian’s pet shop is? Total Rocky aims to be your most complete online guide to tracking down Rocky’s world – here you’ll find maps and addresses to some of the most famous filming locations used in the Rocky movies including spots in Pennsylvania, California, New York and Nevada.

A NOTE TO VISITING FANS: If you’re planning to visit the sites in person, please be respectful – many of these locations are actual residences and businesses and their tenants do not appreciate people loitering on their property.
