the real "Stars Hollow"

Washington Depot

I'm a huge Gilmore Girls fan. I don't watch many shows but I love every single episode of that show and can watch it over and over because the dialogue is so witty and smart. Love it. So, we live in a place that sort of reminds me of Stars Hollow which got me thinking to look up where it really is. Lo and behold i found out that it was within a couple hour drive from us. It's a mixture of two cities. Washington Depot is where the writer saw someone get their own coffee in a cafe - which was in season 1. That was the moment she got the idea. But when you drive around the area, much like where we live, the small towns bump into each other. New Milford seems to be the most Stars Hollow like. The shops, bookstore, dance studio (!), gazebo etc. Here's a few pictures from when we went a year ago. Oh. There's also the pond in Washington Depot and a very nice historic inn. I didn't take a lot of pictures...most were done by car while the kid slept and i didn't get those. We did walk around Washington Depot though and went into the little grocery store where there was teenage "Deans" using price guns to price the food. Too funny. And the town center building is awesome. The rest of the pictures can be seen here. It's a very cozy town.
