PORT ANGELES, Wash.— As skies become grey and the fog rolls in, rumors of vampires and werewolves are far from out of the ordinary in the northwest corner of the Pacific Northwest. Forks, WA – a town that’s situated on the state’s Olympic Peninsula - got its name from the numerous forks in the road that have been created by the hundreds of wild river miles that intersect throughout the region. However, ever since the Twilight series topped both the bestselling list and the box office charts, Forks has become best known for being the inspirational setting for the vampire saga.
Forks is the rainiest town in the contiguous United States, which makes for the perfect escape for an eerie Halloween weekend! The town has become so famous that over the recent years, it has attracted domestic and international visitors alike with not only their claim to fame as the setting for Twilight, but also for its beautiful beaches and abundant outdoor activities, such as hunting, hiking and fishing. Visit Forks and take a Twilight Tour with the Forks Chamber of Commerce or create an itinerary all your own. Whichever route you choose, Forks is sure to enchant vampire-lovers and slayers alike!
