Come with me on a Road Trip to Forks, Washington

For years, I’ve been dreaming of visiting Forks, Washington, the real-life setting of the Twilight series. After countless TikToks and Instagram posts, I finally decided to make the trip, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I know after this, Forks will be on your travel bucket-list too! (if not already added!)

My boyfriend and I set out from Seattle bright and early, on a 3 1/2-hour drive that promised stunning scenery at every turn. As we made our way through Mount Olympus, passing by so many beautiful lakes and lush forests, I knew we were in for a treat.

The Perfect Timing
October proved to be the perfect time to visit Forks. The weather was just right, and the usually rainy town was bathed in golden sunlight, making our adventure even more magical.

Twilight Sightings
Our first stop was near Port Angeles, where Bella and Edward had their first dinner date. We discovered a breathtakingly clear fresh water lake that mirrored it’s surroundings.

Welcome to Forks
When we got to Forks, we were greeted by the iconic town sign, a must-stop for any Twilight enthusiast. Our next stop was the Chamber of Commerce, where a friendly lady handed us a map detailing all the key Twilight locations from the book, complete with a note from Stephanie Meyer herself explaining why she chose Forks as the setting.

Exploring the Twilight Universe
Armed with our map, we set out to explore Forks High School, Charlie’s police station, the Cullens’ house, the Swan house, Carlisle’s hospital parking spot, and the Twilight museum. The town felt like it had stepped right out of the pages of the book, making it so surreal and unforgettable.

A Taste of Twilight
No trip to Forks would be complete without a visit to the treaty line, where the Quileute reservation begins. We stumbled upon a restaurant themed around Twilight, where I indulged in a Vampire shake and savored a much-needed burger. (you simply have to try this spot!)

La Push and Second Beach
Our journey continued to La Push, where we made our way into a scenic mile hike to Second Beach. The beauty of this place is beyond words, with towering trees, rugged cliffs, and the sound of crashing waves recreating the bella experience in La Push.
Hugging a tree here is a must, and once you reach the beach, you’ll find it hard to tear yourself away.

A Road Trip to Remember
This road trip to Forks, Washington, was one of the best adventures I’ve ever had. The combination of stunning scenery, Twilight nostalgia, and the thrill of exploring a new place made it truly unforgettable. Special thanks to Toyota for making it happen with their reliable and comfortable drive!
