Fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series will enjoy visiting the real Forks and seeing all the Twilight locations and attractions. You’ll also discover what attracted the author to this part of the world in the first place – it’s endless natural beauty!
Forks Washington Twilight Attractions
The small, lumber town of Forks is home to a number of Twilight-related attractions. A map to them on the Forks Chamber of Commerce website.
Bella’s Truck – 1411 South Forks Avenue
Stop by Bella’s red 1950’s Chevrolet pickup truck for some fun photo ops. While you’re here, check out some info on the area at the nearby Forks Visiting Center.
The Swan House – 775 K Street
The owners of this private residence volunteered their home as the “official” home of Bella and Charlie. Feel free to take pics of the sign out front but please respect this private residence.
The Cullen House – 654 E Division Street
Forks’ Cullen House, aka The Miller Tree Inn, resembles the home in the books more than the one in the movies. Regardless, the Cullen name is on the mailbox, and messages from Esme can sometimes be seen on the front porch.
Forks High School – 191 S. Spartans Ave.
The Forks High School sign in the movie was based off the real deal and the locale was home to many scenes in the books and films. Excellent for photo opportunities.
Forks Hospital – 530 Bogachiel Way, Forks, WA 98331
Forks Hospital is also a prominent location in the Twilight saga.
Twilight Attractions Outside Forks
Not all the action in the Twilight saga occurs in Forks. While we can’t help you much with those that are located off the Olympic Peninsula, the rest are all within easy driving distance of our Washington coast lodge.
Bella first connected with Jacob Black on a beach in La Push. La Push is home to the Quileute Indian Tribe and one of the most popular Twilight locations. See the Vampire/Werewolf Treaty Line on 7760 La Push Road and enjoy the area’s majestic beaches.
The Hoh Rainforest
The Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park is just outside Forks and a wonderful place to visit, Twihard or not. That being said, Twilight fans will find the scenery reminiscent of many important events in the series.
Bella Italia – 118 E 1st Street, Port Angeles, WA
The restaurant where Edward and Bella had their first date exists. In fact, this fine Italian eatery has been in business since 1996, well before the Twilight series existed. The food is quite good and Bella’s mushroom ravioli is on the menu! www.bellaitaliapa.com
Forever Twilight Festival
Beyond all the fun scene locations around town, Forks also hosts an annual festival around the Twilight saga.
The Forever Twilight in Forks Festival features a host of Twilight-themed special events, activities and attractions. This year’s special guests include actors from the Twilight Saga films: Christopher Heyerdahl (Marcus), Alex Meraz (Paul), and Erik Odomare (Peter)!
The 4-day celebration occurs every year on the weekend closest to Bella’s birthday, September 13th. This year, that is September 12th through 15th, 2019. Learn more at the Forever Twilight in Forks Festival webpage. You can also visit the festival on Facebook.
