With rows of strawberries ready for picking serving as the teleserye's backdrop, Forevermore is shot in Sitio Pungayan, the real-life version of the fictional La Presa. Though both in Benguet, the prod location is in Tuba and not in La Trinidad, the known "Strawberry Capital of the Philippines."

In a report by ABS-CBN News, locals have observed that people started visiting the village and taking pictures of it because of the show. Forevermore has also helped boost tourism in Benguet as the series also featured Baguio City's destinations like Burnham Park, Wright Park, and The Manor, said Baguio City Tourism Officer Benny Alhambra.
