This 'Gilmore Girls' Tour Near Toronto Will Take You To Real-Life Stars Hollow

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a day in the life of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore? Well, you can find out for yourself at the Gilmore Girls tour, which will take you right inside the town that inspired Stars Hollow.

The pilot episode of Gilmore Girls was actually filmed in quaint Main Street Unionville, and Destination Markham recently put together a self-guided tour that allows you to explore the area like a real-life Gilmore girl.

The adventure will take you past iconic locations like Luke's Diner, the Town Gazebo, Taylor's Olde Fashioned Soda Shoppe, and other familiar places where Lorelai and Rory spent their days sipping coffee and enjoying life.

Of course, these spots will look much different in real life, but if you're a true fan, you'll be able to recognize similarities.
