STORY & PHOTOS

Veronica Mars: sarcastic, whip-smart, loyal but prickly, and – oh yeah – a teenage detective. When Veronica wasn’t at high school (ugh) or trying to solve her best friend’s murder, she was working alongside her dad Keith, a former sheriff and licensed private investigator.

The hub of the sleuthing on “Veronica Mars” was the office of Keith’s private eye business, Mars Investigations. The exterior of this show centerpiece can be found in San Diego’s Normal Heights neighborhood.

In real life it’s the Cabrillo Academy of the Sword, a school for Olympic fencing and theatrical swordplay. (Shame they never incorporated theatrical swordplay into “Veronica Mars”, right?)

I wish it were possible to intern at Mars Investigations! I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat to be a super sleuth, but I would love to hang around and try not to get murdered.
