DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: Jamie driving with the kids

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. A public street.


Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. Somewhere between Orlando and Miami, (about three hours away from Miami).


Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 8, of Season 7, "Argentina".

    Dexter is stalking Isaak at a restaurant, when he gets a phone call from Jamie (Angel's sister, and Dexter's nanny).

    He had sent her to Orlando to pick up Cody & Astor, and now, in this short scene, she's in the car, on her way back to Miami.

    As she drives, the kids squabble, and she tells Dexter that they're about three hours out of Miami, depending on the traffic.

    He tells her to meet him at her brother's new beach restaurant.


Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A public street - just not in Miami.


Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This is Ocean Boulevard, the main coastal route of Long Beach, CA., that runs for miles along the beach, between downtown and the peninsula.





    They shot this scene with the car headed east on Ocean Blvd, along the coast in the Belmont shore area -- from the 4900 block to the 5300 block of E. Ocean Blvd, roughly a mile stretch between St. Joseph (on the northwest) and Bay Shore (on the southeast) Avenues.



    Here are Google StreetViews matching the buildings seen along the Ocean Blvd drive:

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

A. Given the number of apartment houses, I first searched Hollywood, around the studio, but quickly realized that the streets there don't have green grass dividers (which is seen in the scene).  Since I knew that they had filmed near the Olympic Pool, and at Bay Shore park, and knowing how much they like to cluster-shoot in the same general ar

Once I took a look at the Google StreetView, I was pretty sure it was the right street, I just needed to find the same apartment houses that matched those seen in the driving scene.  It took a little time, but the first one I found was the most obvious: that Arabian looking apartment house, which turned out to be the Seashore apartments, at 4915 Ocean. That confirmed that they filmed on the street, and it was then just a matter of time before I hunted down the remaining matching buildings.
