Day Trip to Forks, WA

It was a long overdue – since my childhood friend was on town last February, it was just a good timing to visit Forks. We were so excited to see the actual town where author Stephenie Meyer based her Twilight saga novels.

Here are some of the pointers you have to consider before you visit one of the rainiest city in United States. (<– fact! :P)

  1. Check the weather here
  2.  Click here for a Twilight map of Forks
  3. Dress comfortably and don’t forget to wear you favorite rain boots. I wore my MK brown rain boots – best decision!

 

We drove up to Forks on a Sunday – around 6:00 in the morning.

This is how the road looked like for miles and miles. Twilight feels! Just FYI 😉

I’ve done some research and they say it’s best to start the tour at  Forks Visitor Center  (image below)

We arrived at Forks around 10:30 am and the center opened at 11:00

Time for pictures, while waiting (my favorite part!)

Don’t forget to take a picture at the “Welcome to Forks” sign (At one point, the

“3rd most photographed sign in the US”)

DISCLAIMER: Twilight tourist map in the real town of Forks are not the ones from the film, though they say some parts in the movie was filmed in Port Angeles and Hoh Rainforest but not mainly in Forks. It was all Forks residents interpretation Stephen Meyer’s BOOK version .

Here are some of the photos from our trip
