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.
