The Real Gravity Falls? Part 1 by tervaco The Real Gravity Falls? Part 1 by tervaco
Last summer I set out to find the real life Gravity Falls. Following the map from the opening scenes of the series and Alex Hirsch's blog, I located the town of Boring, Oregon. According to Alex, he and his family were on a road trip when he was younger when they passed a sign for the town. Though they never actually went there, Alex stated that he always thought about it and its what lead to this insane and sweet little series. Well, this is the sign that leads into the town and you can already see a bit of the similarities.

Since season 2 premieres tonight, I figured now was the best time to post this and the sequel piece where I found what could be a close Mystery Shack.

I happened to grow up not too far from Boring, and just have to say they have a school literally named "Boring High School." I laughed on the inside whenever someone brought it up.

They're mascot is the eagle, I believe.

Very cool. I'd have spent more time exploring the town, but I was on a tight time table and didn't exactly feel welcome ^^;

It's funny, I was just asking myself today when they were going to air the new season, and lo and behold, there it is on the channel guide, as you said it would be. Thanks for the heads up!

Also, I would like to thank you for informing me that there is a town called: "Boring" in Oregon. That is just so good to know.

Yes, it really is. There's a sister town north of it called Dull, no joke.
