CNN: Five Great Movie Locations to Visit

CNN has a list of five great movie locations to visit. Twilight is on the list and is especially prominent in their photo gallery. Minor point is that they feature Forks and La Push and don’t have a single photo up of any actual filming location in Portland, Vancouver, or Montepulciano. We suppose it’s the thought that counts.

3. “Twilight” series, Washington state

The Forks, Washington, area has turned into “Twilight” heaven. Visitors can enjoy dinner at Bella Italia in Port Angeles, where Edward and Bella had their first date; stop by Forks Outfitters, where Bella worked; and travel to Forks High School, where the two first met (rumored to be the filming location for the school scenes.)

Additionally, the area boasts stand-in homes of the Swans and Cullens and motels such as the Dew Drop Inn, complete with “Bella’s suite” featuring black and red bedding.”

  1. thats great!!!!=)

  2. Hey guys,
    I know your probably bogged down in all this breaking dawn info but Nikki Reed booked a new movie that actually looks pretty cool. I would love some coverage of that. Thanks

      I’m actually working on an side projects thing later today. i was hoping for some other info to materialize on things for two other stars, but I’ll run Nikki solo tomorrow if it doesn’t come in.

  3. I’m planning to go to Stephenie Meyer day this year for the first time. So I’m excited about visiting Forks for the first time.

    • Oh how fun! *Jealous!* I think it would be really fun to get a bunch of Lexicon people together and go on a group trip up there. I have friends who are fans, but they’re not real fans like us Lexiconers who are on here every day. If you’re reading this admins, have you ever thought of doing something like that? Getting together a bunch of people and going?

      • That would be amazing! I mean, the Twilight moms do it, so why not us?

      • Twilight_News says:

        Actually, we did three years ago :)We also went up and presented at the Summer School in Forks convention that was in Forks two years ago

        • Have you thought about another one, maybe like a trip with your admins and a group of us fans? I would TOTALLY go for that!! And I think some others would be in too.

          • Twilight_News says:

            I don’t know maybe. We have enough trouble doing our movie event every year and that is just a one-day event.

            As much as we love being at conventions, we don’t ever want to run one. We have gained a whole new respect for creations entertainment and just how difficult it is to have a con go well when a myriad of things beyond your control can go wrong.

            I’m not saying no, but maybe in the future for Stephenie Meyer day.

  4. A trip to the Olympic Peninsula is so worth it. I went this summer, stayed in the hotel in La Push and had an amazing time. It’s truly a magical place and one of the most uniquely beautiful places I’ve been in the world.

  5. Been there!! Traveled 2,000 miles where my friend presented at the Summer School in Forks Symposium as well. Now it seems we are the local “Go-To” girls for all things Twilight 😉
