Forks Things to Do

  • Hoh Rainforest - Olympic National Park

    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.

  • The Forks Welcome Center

    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...

  • For fans of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight...

    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...

  • Hike in the Hoh Rain Forest

    The Hoh Rain Forest is a part of the Olympic National Park, which is a UNESCO designated World Heritage site. It is about 45-60 minutes south of the city of Forks on the Olympic Peninsula via Highway 101. The Hoh Rain Forest is one of the few temperate rainforests in the world. Because of the almost constant rain, everything is very green and lush,...

  • Hoh Rain Forest

    Not far from Forks is the Hoh Rain Forest, one of the few temperate rain forests on the west coast of North America. This is the most popular of Olympic's four major rain forests: Quinault, Queets, Hoh, and Bogachiel. The rain forest is accessible by road and has a visitor center, as well as short trails leading around the rain forest. Hall of the...

  • Forks Timber Museum

    The Forks Timber Museum definitely has facts you never thought you'd know. It tells about the area around Forks, as well as some of the older families and history on the town itself. Forks is a logging community, it was even the lgging capital of the world for a short time, and today it's known for its High Tec High School. The logger's museum is...

Forks Restaurants

  • Asian Inspired Food

    Forks may be one of the largest communities on the Olympic Peninsula, but that is only relative. The fact is it is still a fairly small city, and there are only several restaurants. What restaurants there are here survive the winter by having food that is cheap enough for locals to afford to eat it, and on a very limited tourist traffic passing...

  • Open Early for Working Class Breakfast

    While it advertises itself as a coffee shop, the fact is that this is a typical American diner at breakfast time, and it is open early and serving an assortment of typical American diner style fare for breakfast. You should pretty much expect that at a place that opens at 5:30 in the morning in a community dominated by the logging industry.You will...

  • Fish and chips, cod and salmon

    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. Fish and chips (cod), fried salmon and rice.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
