Fans of Nicolas Cage's new action adventure National Treasure can retrace the actor's footsteps along the streets of Washington and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

A week before the new film, in which Cage's character searches for lost treasure after discovering a map on the back of the Declaration of Independence, is released tourism bosses are hoping to cash in on the historical interest in the movie with guided tours of the landmarks in the film.

Fans will be able to visit all the place Cage's character does as he searches for the lost treasure, including the Liberty Bell Center and Independence Hall in Philadelphia and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington DC.

Ironically, Cage didn't get to film in the Independence Hall because filming is forbidden there. Instead scenes were recreated in a replica of the hall at California theme park Knott's Berry Farm.
