the funny thing is... I hear they have added more touresty stuff!!! The "Cullen House" was a B&B that a good friend of mine was close with the owner. She kept telling me... "My friends B&B was in the movie" I kept telling her that the movie was filmed in Portland the the Cullen house is a fake destination for us tourests. LOL. She's on page 13 of Twilight and hasn't seen the movie.

I so didn't want to come home from my trip. Not only because I was in Forks, but because I was there with most of my best Twilight buds! It was so much fun! It would've been heaven if that trip could've lasted forever. On the day we left, I told my hubby that I wanted him and the cats to come up to Forks rather than me come home. ;)

It is beautiful in the Olympic Peninsula! Here are some pictures:

lol @ the dr.cullen parking space....xD I can't believe they have that! Hmmmm Forks high schoolers must feel special!


Hahah yeah it's so weird to see all of the new attractions they are putting up around town. But being a twilight fan I love it! The older people in town, not so much..

Omg, I live on the other side of the country from Forks, so the chances of me going there are like ZERO. Espically since I can't drive til next summer. But, that would be really cool...a road trip with my friends to Forks. And I guess you could say. "What happens in Forks, stays in Forks." :)

I've been there as well!!

it was so green and beautiful, it didnt rain but there was a overcast all day, i live in California so it was really different from the weather here. I highly enjoyed it though and i just loved the entire atmosphere of the place! I got to see all the awesome landmarks they have reserved for the book and i took pictures of all of it!

I also went to La Push and First Beach, it was very beautiful and i enjoyed it so much, i could just feel the book coming to life!
The boys of Twilight are my favorite.

I want to go!!! *cries*

I live in Scotland though and it would cost me a fortune which i'll never have... also i'd only probably have one friend to go with since she is a huge twilight fan too and none of my other mates really know what it is because Twilight isn't really a huge thing over here but shes moving back to Australia next year :( so I'm gonna miss her...

But i've gone off topic lol. Would love to go but simply would NEVER be able to afford it.

My friend & I had the opportunity to visit Forks a couple weeks ago. We flew out to Seattle to visit a musician friend of ours who was playing at a new Casino there.(I live in Ohio & my friend is from South Carolina).

We were pretty rushed since we were only there for 2 days...we got to visit First Beach @ La Push. It was freezing cold so we didn't hang around for very long. The drive back to Forks from there was amazing. It was absolutely breathtaking watching the sun come up behind the mountains.

We stayed at the Forks Motel right on the main drag of the town. Mostly just took pictures of everything because nothing opened until 10am(it was about 6am when we started driving around Aimlessly. haha).

Port Angeles was equally as beautiful...

I've got a few pictures on my myspace...feel free to add me if you like! :)

I'm thinking of going back to visit for my birthday in September(It's on the 12th...so it will be cool to be there for Stephenie Meyer day/Bella's birthday).

Ok guys, heres the deal.
My parents just announced what one of my christmas presents were, and it is a trip to FORKS!!! I am soooo excited!! They have instructed me to find out where things are and where some good places to go are. So, if any of you have a place that I just HAVE to go to while I'm there, post it here so that I know!! Plus, I'd like to know where everything in surrounding places are. Like the Bella Italia restaraunt.
We are going to Seattle, LaPush, Port Angeles, and Forks. Pretty much, a Twilight vacation.
We are leaving in two weeks, so if you guys have any info or maps (i saw the one on the other page. :) thank you!), please post them!

Here is a link to the Bella Italia website and it has a map. http://www.bellaitaliapa.com/ It is actually on the same street in between the book store Bella goes to and the movie theater that she sees movies in with Jessica and later Jacob in New Moon. Also, between Port Angeles and Forks, the road goes by Lake Crescent which is very pretty!!! In Forks, be sure to stop at the visitor center(they will give you one of those maps and also mark where "The Swan" house and also "The Cullen" House are located). They also give you a list of all the stores that sell Twilight stuff(Dazzled by Twilight is cool and for sure go into Forks Outfitters). Also, Bella's truck is there too. Forks Outfitters has some great shirts and sweatshirts for sale. I would also recommend going to the Hoh rainforest(about a 30 minute drive from Forks) and also when you are in La Push, in addition to visiting First Beach, take the trail that leads to Second Beach(There is a sign off the main road before you get into the actual town of La Push). It's very pretty and surreal walking around the La Push forest and then down to the ocean with all the driftwood. :-) I would also recommend staying at the Quillayute River Resort http://www.qriverresort.com/ It is super pretty(it's right on a river) and the people are super nice. Plus it is right between La Push and Forks. Ooooo, also go to Rialto beach. Very pretty! Oh! And in Forks, go to Sully's drive-in for burgers and order the Bella burger...they give you a side of plastic vampire fangs with your meal. So funny! LOL!! Let me know if you have any questions. I was just there in November, so it's all still fresh in my mind! ;)
