MSNBC Names Forks as a Top Vacation Spot for Book Lovers

MSNBC named Forks as a top place for book lovers to visit. They also named locations that coincide with the Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Eat Pray Love, and the Girl With a Dragon Tattoo series.

“Ever since Bella fell for Edward — and readers fell for the vampire-themed series by Stephenie Meyer  — visitors in the tens of thousands have flocked to Forks, Wash. A good starting point for “Twilight” tourists is the Forks Chamber of Commerce. Visitors can get maps, brochures and other information about “Twilight” destinations, including Forks City Police Department, where Bella’s father works; Forks Outfitters, where Bella works; and Forks High School, where Bella first meets Edward. At the chamber, visitors can also have their photo taken with Bella’s truck and see a lighted gazebo like the one Bella and Edward danced in at the prom. “We love being the center of the ‘Twilight world,’ ” said the chamber’s director, Marcia Bingham. “We have a well-trained staff that speaks fluent ‘Twilight.’ ” Two tourism companies, Dazzled by Twilight and Team Forks, also offer guided tours of Twilight-related sights in the region.”
