Hallmark’s ‘Sister Swap: Christmas in the City’ follows sisters Meg and Jennifer on a warm holiday tale. The two sisters arrive in each other’s towns just before Christmas, and Meg delves into helping out at her sister’s restaurant. However, when she meets Joe, who works at the restaurant, sparks begin to fly between Meg and him.
Part of the ‘Sister Swap’ series, the film has all the warm Christmas décor that one would expect in the backdrop of a holiday movie. Considering the story takes place across multiple towns, where was the movie filmed? If you’ve been wondering the same, we’ve got your back! Here are the filming locations of ‘Sister Swap: Christmas in the City.’
Sister Swap: Christmas in the City: Filming Locations
The film was shot in Utah, with additional filming carried out in British Columbia. Scenes were seemingly mostly shot on location, and principal photography appears to have lasted between April 12, 2021, and May 22, 2021, with additional production carried out from July 5, 2021, to August 5, 2021. Interestingly, both ‘Sister Swap: Christmas in the City’ and ‘Sister Swap: Hometown Holiday’ were filmed simultaneously, with particular scenes shot from multiple angles so they could be used in both movies. Now let’s take a look at the specific locations used to bring the movie to life.
Salt Lake City, Utah
The production team spent time filming in Salt Lake City, which is where one of the titular sisters, Jennifer, runs a restaurant. Scenes were seemingly shot on location around the downtown area, and we also catch glimpses of a few residential neighborhoods in the movie.
Vancouver, British Columbia
Lensing also took place extensively in Vancouver, British Columbia, with multiple scenes shot on location across the city. The varied backdrops that Vancouver offers gave the film crew a wide range of picturesque options to choose from.
Filming was also seemingly carried out in a residential neighborhood. In fact, most of the scenes depicting the sisters’ hometown of Hazelwood were likely shot in Vancouver.
