Cue the enchanting small town soundtrack (don’t worry, we’ve got you covered). Gilmore Girls‘ Stars Hollow is coming to a town near you! Well, the town actually existed well before Gilmore Girls launched, as series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino based the show on the quirky small town in Connecticut. But with the series’ revival on the horizon, the small down of Washington Depot, Connecticut is finally going full-fledged Stars Hollow for one weekend only!
