There are many things that contribute to making viewers fall in love with a television show.
From enthralling storylines involving the main characters, to the central mystery or bond that brings them all together. But a television show can become one of the greats if they manage to make their setting a character of its own.
From Gilmore Girls to Parks and Recreation, these classic series have established their fictional settings as go-to destinations, which keep people rewatching even years after the show goes off the air.
Luckily for television fans, Sunglass Warehouse created some neat postcards for some of our favorite series' fictional towns. Keep scrolling to take a look at some of the town's points of interests.
Stars Hollow, Connecticut
Gilmore Girls made all fans want to move to, or visit Stars Hollow.

While not blessed with their own postcards by Sunglass Warehouse, we have to give some honorable mentions to some of our TV show settings.
The fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania held all the secrets from our favorite Pretty Little Liars. It contains many principal locations: the police station, the Rosewood High School, the church, the Rosewood Shopping Center, Hollis College, the Rosewood Community Hospital, the Rosewood movie theater, the mausoleum, the dental office, the Ophthalmology Cabinet and the Rosewood Court.
Fun fact: The town square is shot in the same set as Gilmore Girls' Stars Hollow, so there's a connection between both series.prevnext
