After the Eclipse red carpet in LA we took a trip up the coast to Forks and La Push Washington. Forks is a tiny town now made famous from the Twilight Saga. Some of the towns people are a bit annoyed by the fame but the local businesses are very happy. Many said they were on the verge of backruptcy before Twilight.
The familiar Forks welcome sign and some other fun signs we saw in La Push
There are stores for Twifans as well as restraunts that have Twilight menus.
We were there on the 4th of July and the prade featured a Twilight themed float! The welcome center had a "Bella" car and maps around Forks to find all the places Stephenie Meyers talks about in the books.
La Push and 1st Beach were very pretty. I picked up some driftwood and rock as souvenirs.
We stop at Kalama Highschool on our way to Forks. It was use as Forks Highschool in the movies.
It was a great trip! If you are in the area it is worth the visit!
