The best way to get a taste of what the Emmy-winning fashion design reality show "Project Runway" is all about is to visit New York during the semiannual Fashion Week, when designers both new and established debut their latest collections. If you can't score an invite, you can grab a seat with On Location Tours, which includes a few "Project Runway" stops on its New York TV and Movie Sites Tour.
What you see: Visitors see the main offices of Parsons The New School For Design, which has played host to the show and its designer contestants, and Bryant Park, where the program's Fashion Week finales used to be held. The tour also visits the apartment building from "Friends" and McGee's Pub, the inspiration for MacLaren's on the sitcom "How I Met Your Mother."
Tour frequency: Daily
Cost (per adult): $42 for 3 ½-hour tour
