We drove through the town twice, which is not something I'd usually blog about, I also know that limits my tips and sights to share here. But, you guys! It's where Bella and Edward live! I wish I didn't know that, but I do.
The town is of course a major tourist attraction to fans of the popular Twilight books and movies.
We are not these fans, but we did find the tourist attraction to be a tourist attraction in itself. These were just a few photos I snapped as we drove through and stopped at the tourist information center.
What we learned and noticed was the following:
-The sun does shine sometimes.
-This doesn't make it easier to spot sparkly people.
-Finding a motel on a late Saturday afternoon in high season is hard.
-There are several Twilight tours available.
-If you're a female between the ages of 14-35 you're assumed to be there because of the books.
(especially if you pose in front of the 'Welcome to Forks' sign like a dork.)
-The small town of Forks had to build extra bathroom facilities because of the influx of visitors.
-It's possible to stay in Twilight themed rooms.
-This is probably the most you'll ever talk about supernatural chick flicks with your spouse in your life. (hopefully)
-Mixing up your famous books/movies is very entertaining (see opening line).
-There are camping sites towards the beach from Forks. Thankfully!
-The forest that surrounds the town is simply breathtaking.
