The newest blockbusters, fresh arrivals, and stationery may be found at the Hickory Stick Bookshop. Even a “Rory Reads Book List” has been compiled by The Hickory Stick, which you can start reading while enjoying your second (or third) cup of coffee.

And don’t forget to stop by Sweets for some chocolate and red vines to satiate your Gilmore Girl sweet appetite before you leave.

Walking distance to Thoreau Bridge

While the Gilmore sisters would not often jump for joy at the prospect of hiking, we know they would adore the adorable attire! Washington’s preserves are stunning at this time of year if you want to explore the great outdoors. We also have the Henry David Thoreau Bridge at the Hidden Valley Preserve, which is close by and definitely worth the trip for the vista. The quotations that have been engraved on the bridge in tribute to this poet and philosopher are undoubtedly ones that Rory would find inspiring with Stars Hollow Pumpkin Patch Sweatshirt
