Universal Furniture 11200 Ventura Blvd. Studio City, CA This is the parking lot where Laura runs from the car into a supermarket. Sadly this is now a new building housing a Michaels.

Los Angeles County Courthouse 110 North Grand Avenue, Los Angeles While this famous building is shown as the exterior shot for this scene, it doesn't look like where Bob and Laura Peppler's fake slap fight occurred.
15 To Stop a Steele 1x15
Queen Mary 1126 Queens Hwy, Long Beach, United States Shown as an exterior shot. Again I am fairly sure the interiors were not shot there, however in the multiple times I've been to LA I have never been to the Queen Mary (it just seems super lame) so I can't say for sure.
16 Steele Crazy After All These Years 1x16
UCLA Royce Hall and Powell Library were used as the establishing exteriors but the actual campus was most likely USC but there have been renovations and I can't be completely confident.
17 Steele Among the Living 1x17
Spriggs Art Gallery La Cienega Boulevard 749?(just to the right of 756) It's columns are brown now and the cool white window insets are gone as well as the planter boxes, just goes to show how unique architecture can be ruined so easily.

Los Angeles Coliseum is shown as an exterior but is it the coliseum locker room? Probably not.

Administrations Building, CBS Studio Center 4024 Radford Ave. Studio City, CA
20 Steele's Gold 1x20
Moby's Dock Santa Monica Pier, bar where Laura and Remington question patrons is long gone, probably another restaurant by now.
That great western street was a tough one. I've been obsessed with it for awhile and just found it randomly looking for something else. There were once dozens of western streets and every studio had one or more, most are gone now so it was tough to track down. I had originally eliminated CBS Studio Center but I found an aerial view and it's totally it and I'm super psyched I found it! (Let's just ignore the fact that it was the most obvious choice and it took searching a ton of websites to finally find it.) Click the photo for a bigger pic of backlot view
Vasquez Rocks County Park - not positive on this one but it looks very close. There were definitely some desert scenes shot on a soundstage (including all the night stuff) but most were shot on location. 10700 Escondido Canyon Rd, Santa Clarita, CA
