NORWALK, Calif. — In honor of the upcoming remake of “Vacation” (2015), I decided to stop by the GuestHouse Hotel in Norwalk, Calif. where the swimming pool scene was shot for the original 1983 “National Lampoon’s Vacation” film. As you may recall, Christie Brinkley, otherwise known as the “Girl in the Red Ferrari” took her clothes off in front of Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase). She jumped in the pool and asked Clark, “Are you gonna go for it?” He eventually did, but not long before his wife, Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo) found out about it. The hotel is located at 12500 Firestone Blvd, Norwalk, CA 90650 and features several screenshots from the movie on the walls.
