When Aurora Greenway (Shirley MacLaine) and former astronaut Garrett Breedlove (Jack Nicholson) took their car ride along the ocean, it was on East Beach near Galveston—you know the one from that iconic shot on the poster for Terms of Endearment, the best picture winner at the 1983 Academy Awards. The ten-hanky melodrama was mostly filmed in Houston, in and around tony Avalon, where Greenway lives in the film, but for our money, the site you want to dig your feet into is the sand on Texas's largest beach.
