Forks Things to Do

    Fantastic hiking trails (Hall of mosses), wildlife and beautiful scenics. The drive into the Hoh Rainforest alone is filled with an eery, serene feeling of tranquility.
    Moss laden trees and open fields often with deer or elk.
    Interpretive ranger led activities throughout the day.

    A must do if you're in this neck of the woods.

    You have to start your "Twilight" thing somewhere and since I haven't read any of the books, I thought we should start at the Welcome Center. Good call, because they have maps of all the things you want to see in town. It's nice inside, there's a map where folks put push pins to mark where they traveled from. I did not get a photo of the world map but wish I had. :( Anyway, there is a truck of importance there (from the movie I guess) and the Timber Museum. It's a great place to start and don't forget to pick up a map while you are there!

    Photo opportunities abound. The US visitor map riddled with pins. That truck.

    Author Stephenie Meyer decided to set Twilight, her story of star crossed human/vampire lovers in the "rainiest place in the continental United States" - the City of Forks, Washington, and the city has certainly enjoyed the heightened awareness/notoriety that the books & film have brought to the town. The city's Chamber of Commerce has also been swept up in the popularity of the Twilight Saga, and several locales around the city have been designated as sites from the story, including Bella's House and the Cullen mansion, as well as other existing sites such as Forks High School and City Hall, where Bella's father, the chief of police, works. To find these sites though, you'll need to stop by Forks Chamber of Commerce to pick up a map with all of these locations. Since the city is not very big, you can probably visit all of these sites, including La Push, the nearby Quileute Indian Reservation, in a few hours. They also have Twilight themed tours - the Chamber of Commerce will also have this information.

    We had our evening meal at The Smoke House on September 1, 2009. We paid 63 USD and enjoyed the local atmosphere, but not quite sure whether this was good value for our money.

    Favorite Dish: Fish and chips (cod), fried salmon and rice.

    Big "Twilight" events - like Stephenie Meyer Day (Sept 13) - in Forks can swamp this tiny town with fans. Be sure to check the local calendar and book your accommodations WELL in advance if you're interested in staying here and your visit will coincide with one of these things.
