Vampire Town

Forks, Washington, is the town chosen by Stephenie Meyer as the setting for her bestselling Twilight novels. Although it's been five years since the last Twilight film, there's still plenty for fans to see, including signs used in the movies (which were shot in Oregon), a Twilight tour company, and the nearby Indian reservation.

I stayed at 101 Forks RV Park. The Forks visitor center staff was very helpful. I was given a map of Twilight film locations. I liked the bed and breakfast and the hospital parking spot the best.

Twilight Movie Vampire Town

Forks is a great place to visit, and not just if you are a Twilight fan. Nearby is the Hoh Rainforest, La Push and Rialto beaches -- it is a beautiful area. We stayed at The Miller Tree B&B, which I would highly recommend.

Forks is a town that ran with its novel fame and has done a great job catering to tourists of all types.
