Every now and then, I Google the address of my childhood home just to see if it's on the market. I don't want to buy it, make no mistake. It's more that I'm forever curious to see if any interior photos have been posted so I can take a virtual walk around the place I spent 21 years of my life. But that's as far as I'll take it. In fact, I've never thought of driving up to the house and asking the current owners if I could do a little nostalgia tour. But wanting to return to your childhood stomping grounds is actually a pretty common desire—especially if Zillow is lacking updated pictures.

So, if you've ever thought about making a trip to revisit your childhood home a reality, read on for five expert-driven tips: READ MORE »
