What I Did Yesterday – The Search for Stars Hollow

For those who don’t know me, I’m a super big Gilmore Girls fan. (You have no idea.) On our day off yesterday, my friend, who’s another super big Gilmore Girl fan, and I decided to go to Connecticut to find one of the towns Stars Hollow was based on. We ended up in Guilford, CT, and were not disappointed . We essentially overlaid the show onto the town, and created an alternate universe that afternoon. Sorry, Guilford, but you were commandeered!

We walked slightly down the street (where we passed the old Twickham house) to the river…where Luke pushed Jess into the water. Over the bridge was Woodbridge, but we didn’t want to go there. (Why would we?)
