For fans of Gilmore Girls, it’s impossible to see fall foliage without thinking of the show’s opening credits scene, which features multicolored New England landscapes and the comforting words of Carole King. The small, sleepy town of Stars Hollow has always seemed like the perfect place to spend all of autumn and winter, celebrating the holidays with multiple mugs of coffee and smelling the snow in the air.
This December, you’ll have the chance to eat all of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore’s favorite junk food at their Stars Hollow house. Insider reports that Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California, is selling tickets for tours of the Gilmore Girls set, which includes a stroll through the iconic town square, up-close exterior views of Luke’s Diner and Stars Hollow High, a visit to the gazebo, and lunch at the Gilmore home.
It’s not the first year Warner Brothers has offered this particular tour, but the photo opportunity at Luke’s Diner is new. And since the crotchety, lovable diner owner himself won’t be around to grumble about the omnipresence of cell phones, feel free to pose for as many pictures as you like before moseying on over to Lorelai’s home for a bite to eat.
In addition to Pop-Tarts, pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, and coffee, Warner Bros. is promising other “holiday-themed” treats (though exactly what that means hasn't been announced yet). If last year’s menu is any indication, however, you can count on some Sookie-approved comfort foods. Delish reported oven-roasted turkey breast with cranberry-shallot sauce, lemon garlic roasted chicken, veggie burgers, fries, homestyle macaroni salad, garlic-buttered corn, and salads. The tour website also promises vegetarian and gluten-free options.
The actual lunch will take place in Lorelai’s yard, but you can go inside the house to explore a pop-up shop with mugs, T-shirts, and more Stars Hollow-themed souvenirs.
The tours will run from December 21, 2019, to January 5, 2020, and you can buy tickets for $69 each (or $57 for Southern California residents) here.
