Forks, Wash. included in Forbes Travelers List of Vampire Vacation Spots


Forbes Travelers brings you the 10 Vampire Vacations spots to bring your stakes to. They include Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles" that are based in New Orleans and Transylvania for Dracula.

Indeed, tour groups around the world are helping the vampire imagery come to life with excursions to a number of eerie places — from the legendary Bran Castle (a.k.a Dracula’s Castle) in Romania to historic vampire haunts in New Orleans. Even the small town of Forks, Wash., has become flooded with “Twilight”-crazed fans hoping to catch a glimpse of locations made popular by the sexy teen vampires.

Then there's the new go-to destination for tween vampire fanatics, Forks, Wash., the real town featured in the fictional “Twilight” series. Tours include stops at Charlie and Bella Swan’s house — though it only exists in the novel, the McIrvin family has volunteered their own home as the official house.

There's even a Twilight cruise in the works for 2010. Featuring stars of the movies, the cruise to Alaska will have autograph signings, a costume ball, and all things “Twilight” all week long. Linda Wolf, owner of Cruises, Cruises, Cruises, Inc. believes that there is so much interest in the cruise because “fans want a forum to discuss their love of the story with the stars themselves and with other fans.”
