Gilmore Girls Wiki

Stars Hollow is a fictional town on Gilmore Girls. It is located 30 miles from Hartford, Connecticut. It takes approximately 30 minutes to drive to Hartford and 40 minutes on the bus.


Stars Hollow is a small town of just under 10,000 residents who live very interconnected lives. The town boasts multiple festivals throughout the year, including the Firelight Festival which celebrates the town's founding. Much of the town's business is settled at democratic Town Meetings, held at Miss Patty's Dance School. The Revolutionary War plays a frequent role in the town's history.
