The Twilight Tour of 2011

IMG_0486

I recently went to see “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II,” the conclusion of Stephanie Meyer’s epic love triangle between Edward Cullen, Bella Swan, and Jacob Black. My friend Lory is a die hard Twilight fan and a card carrying member of Team Jacob. Last year, Lory and I went on the ultimate Twilight Tour to Forks, WA, the town where the Twilight stories are set. Ever since I saw the movie, I’ve been thinking about our trip.  http://forkswa.com/

Here are a few highlights from the tour:

Bella’s truck is at the Forks Logger Memorial.  There is a parking spot for Dr. Cullen at the local clinic. The tour also included Jacob Black’s house as well as Bella and Edward’s homes. We traveled in a nice bus and Travis was an excellent tour guide.

We stayed at the Oceanside Resort on the Quileute Reservation.  The beach was a short walk from our hotel room. There’s a warning to all vampires at the reservation line.

It was quite sunny on the day of our tour, so there was little threat of vampires. Lory was correcting the warning sign.

We also visited Port Angeles and the restaurant where Edward and Bella had their first date and the book store where Bella bought the books about vampires.

When you are in Port Angeles, take the time to drive up Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic Mountains or take the ferry to Victoria British Columbia, a gorgeous place to visit.  http://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/visiting-hurricane-ridge.htm     http://www.ferrytravel.com/portangeles.htm

The Hoh rain forest is also nearby. Don’t forget your raincoat or umbrella.  http://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/visiting-the-hoh.htm

The Olympic Peninsula is a beautiful place to visit but on the cloudy days, watch out for vampires.  You never know who or what might be lurking in the forest.
