Visit NC has added a page to its website detailing all the spots where the movie filmed. It gives visitors an idea of how to map out an Iron Man 3 vacation.

If you are planning a tour around Iron Man 3, stops would include downtown Wilmington, the North Carolina State Port, Oak Island, Rose Hill, Kenansville, urban Raleigh and suburban Cary.

The website details the spots to visit while you are in each location.

Iron Man 3 will be released in theaters nationwide on May 3.

The website also includes tour information based on other films shot in North Carolina, including The Hunger Games and Safe Haven.
