Forks, Washington Twilight tour

I'm taking two excited teenage girls to Forks for Spring break to see all the sites that were in the Twilight book. We have planned 5 days. Can anyone tell me if this is a reasonable amount of time? I was thinking it may even be too long. There seems to be plenty of other things we could do in this beautiful part of the world! Thanks.

do a search on here for Forks or Twilight. There are several similar posts all with advice. If you search first then you can see what others have suggested. Most of the filming apparently was in Oregon. You can also research seattletimes.com as they did an article about Forks and the 'tours'.

Here's a list of book-oriented tour stops:


You could do that easily in a day. The interesting sights in the area are outside of Forks and Port Angeles. It's an area of tremendous natural beauty, where you could easily spend five days:

Rialto Beach

La Push

Hoh Rain Forest

Ruby Beach

Kalaloch Lodge

Clallam Bay

Cape Flattery

Makah Indian Museum

Lake Ozette

Cape Avala

Lake Crescent

Lake Quinault

Sol Duc Hot Springs

That sounds like the right amount of time to me... but then I am a fan of both Twilight and the Olympic Peninsula. You might get tired of hearing the girls talk about Twilight but you won't get tired of the scenery.

I think the movie was filmed in Oregon.

The movie was filmed in Oregon, but the books all take place on the Peninsula, so one decides if they want to see the REAL Twilight destinations, or the MOVIE ones (ok; it is a work of fiction, but we are talking about obsessed fans here).

Clearly, the vampires live on the peninsula, not in Oregon, so if you want to run in to one (omigod, they are Sooooo cute!) you'll need to be near Forks.

That's right. The vampires prefer the deeper, gloomy weather of Forks and the peninsula.

Latincherry after i recieved your email from TA I came to see what was going on on the Forums...first of all I'm a girl :)and monkey is what I call my cat... lol..funny

AlbertaMolly I did a Twilight inspired trip to Oregon where Twilight the movie was filmed and I also went to Forks where the Twilight the book is based on. Both were excellent!!! I have my trip report here in the Forks forum called "Trip to Portland OR, Forks Wa and Seattle WA 11/14-16/08" check it out...I would recommend you stay in oregon 2 or 3 days and the other 2 or 3 days in Forks.

Good luck!!

My daughter and I are also visiting Forks this summer. We found a tour that looks pretty good at forksadventures.com. They provide everything you need for five days. Since I don't know my way around or even how to find the places we want to see, I'm thinking about signing up.
