1. Adventure Suites

Yeah, okay, it might not be a cozy hobbit hole, but Adventure Suits is still a badass fantasy themed hotel, with rooms ranging anywhere between a 70s love shack, all the way to a full-on Game of Thrones suit. Each of the hotels many rooms is tailored towards a ton of different awesome, weird, funny, and completely unique experiences... Not to mention the amazing view of the mountains, and the outdoor fire pits. You might never want to leave. 

2. The Hobbit Houses

The Hobbit houses' are a series of fantastical homes created by Disney artist Joseph Lawrence. And though the homes have appeared in a handful of Hollywood movies, it was only coincidence that they resembled P.J's vision of the Shire. The homes are private property so stick to the sidewalk for your pictures!

Do you love beer and gigantic deep-fried turkey legs? Do you love corset-clad ladies with bountiful breasts and terrible British accents? If you answered yes to all of the above, you need to stop whatever you're doing and head to the ORF right now! You don't have to be a fantasy dork to appreciate all the awesomeness! Huzzah! 

4. Wizard Quest
