Are you (not so) guilty of binge-watching Gilmore Girls every year? When fall comes around the corner, do you like snuggling in with warm cocoa and enjoy seeing Lorelai and Rory go about their lives?
If you’re a fan of Gilmore Girls (honestly, who isn’t?), you’re bound to have a trip to Connecticut on your bucket list. But before you try to buy a ticket to Stars Hollow, we should probably break the bad news to you. The quaint town where our favorite characters live is, unfortunately, fictional.
But just because the New England town isn’t real doesn’t mean there aren’t similar regions in Connecticut. In fact, Stars Hollow was inspired by many of the cities and towns that dot the Connecticut state map.
Here are some places that will remind you of the Gilmore Girls charm you love (Warning: Spoilers ahead!):
If you were able to blink away the tears of happiness for long enough, you must’ve admired the location of Lorelai’s wedding to Luke. Situated in the middle of fictional Stars Hollow’s town square was a beautifully-lit, adorably quaint gazebo—and you can totally visit the actual location too!
This gazebo is located in New Milford, sitting in the middle of the town and basking in its charming green glory.
Die-hard fans of Gilmore Girls are all too familiar with the show’s origin story. Show creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, visited Washington while on vacation and happened to stay at the Mayflower Inn & Spa. And, thus, the inspiration for Gilmore Girls was born.
Any perfect getaway for a Gilmore Girls fan would be incomplete without a stop—and perhaps a relaxing day of pampering—at this charming Inn & Spa in Washington, CT.
While you’re in Washington, don’t forget to pay a visit to the local coffee shop, food market, and bookshop to see the classic Gilmore Girls locations.
If there’s any town that emulates the old-world charm of Stars Hollow, it’s Litchfield, Connecticut.
Walk along the strip of shops and admire the antiques and vintage items on display, we’re sure you’ll find adorable trinkets similar to what Mrs. Kim would have at Kim’s Antiques. There’s nothing better than taking a stroll amongst the line of stores reminiscent of Stars Hollow’s allure.
