When we finished up at Ruby Beach we continued on 101 north, which brought us in to Forks, WA. Our books state that Forks is a quintessential Pacific Northwest logging town. For those of you that don't know Forks is also the setting of the Twilight books. The town seems to have fully embraced Twilight and the visitor’s center was decked out with all things Twilight. There is a logging museum right at the visitor’s center, but it was closed. We did check out a Twilight Tour bus that was pulled in the parking lot and we got a map from the woman in the visitor’s center for a Twilight self guided tour. I think I am right that they don’t do any of the filming for the movies in Forks and we did see when we were at the OFM in Astoria that they filmed parts of Twilight in Oregon. However, like I said Forks has fully embraced Twilight
We really just drove by things and took a picture of Bella’s house and the Cullen’s house. We weren’t too impressed with the Cullen house. There also were different stores on the main street that sold everything Twilight. It was a fun little stop, but it definitely didn’t take long to do. We probably could have spent some time out at La Push, but you had to detour off of 101 and we decided not to.
