Known as the rainiest town in the contiguous United States, Forks is a favorite among salmon anglers, kayakers, beach lovers, hikers and campers. Named for the nearby confluence of four rivers, Forks is a small town of about 4,000 people in Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. Sandwiched between Olympic National Park and the Pacific Ocean, Forks is surrounded by lush, natural beauty. This small timber town has gained new life through tourism after it was depicted as the setting of the Twilight novels and movies. Tour companies drive visitors around the area to sites depicted in the books and movies, and the town holds an annual three-day celebration to honor Twilight series author Stephenie Meyer.
