Home Of The Twilight Saga
Various locations around town
Okay, so I didn't read any of the books or see any of the movies. And I'm not on Team Edward or Team Jacob. But I've been to and through Forks, Washington, the setting of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight saga, a number of times, and I figured some Twilight fans might like to see a bit of the real Forks.
And so has the Forks Chamber of Commerce. Although the saga was set in Forks and surrounding areas, the movies were actually filmed elsewhere. But that hasn't stopped Twilight fans from descending on the town. So the Chamber of Commerce identified a number of local destinations that aligned well with the settings and descriptions in the books. The local high school and police station were obvious selections. Local houses were designated as the homes of the Cullens and Swans based on descriptions. The Chamber of Commerce has even produced a nice map to help you find your way around.
