Forks is Listed by MSNBC as Top Destination for Book Lovers
I know Forks is on my list of places to visit in the next couple of years!
Ever since Bella fell for Edward â€” and readers fell for the vampire-themed series by Stephenie Meyer â€” visitors in the tens of thousands have flocked to Forks, Wash. A good starting point for â€œTwilightâ€ tourists is the Forks Chamber of Commerce.. Visitors can get maps, brochures and other information about â€œTwilightâ€ destinations, including Forks City Police Department, where Bellaâ€™s father works; Forks Outfitters, where Bella works; and Forks High School, where Bella first meets Edward. At the chamber, visitors can also have their photo taken with Bellaâ€™s truck and see a lighted gazebo like the one Bella and Edward danced in at the prom. â€œWe love being the center of the â€˜Twilight world,â€™ â€ said the chamberâ€™s director, Marcia Bingham. â€œWe have a well-trained staff that speaks fluent â€˜Twilight.â€™ â€ Two tourism companies, Dazzled by Twilight and Team Forks, also offer guided tours of Twilight-related sights in the region.â€
