Guess who’s featured in the December Costco Connection magazine? Yup. It’s Forks! The article, written by Stephanie E. Ponder, is actually very nicely done–thanks! Among other things, we like how they say whether the people they interview are Costco members. Maybe we should mention that Costco is a Forks Chamber of Commerce member. And it looks like someone at Costco enjoys puns. Good tines indeed! We appreciate the effort!

This article from the UK Mail attributes a 1000% increase in tourism here in Forks to Robert Pattinson. Thanks Rob!! We hadn’t really thought of it that way before. . . . The article does a nice job of covering some of the local attractions, mentioning Ruby Beach and the Hoh Rainforest. Cheers to the Mail for the great article and for helping us spread the word about Forks. If you really want to see the dark, rainy, authentic Forks, now is the perfect time to visit!

Thanks to writer Candice Vallantin and the Toronto-based Globe and Mail for this special Halloween feature about Forks. We’re well-aware that Canada is home to hordes of Twilight fans–many of whom have already made the trek to Forks, WA. And no wonder, since we’re only a 56 mi/90 km drive from Victoria, BC (via ferry). We enjoyed the article and appreciate the attention we’re getting in Canada!

We got a kick out of this article about Forks in New York Times Travel. While the first impression of the article from everyone in town is likely to be “hey, it’s really not a two-stoplight town–it’s a one-stoplight town,” overall, Jane Margolies does a fine job of capturing the fun of Stephenie Meyer Day and the story of the Twilight frenzy here in Forks. We also enjoyed the slide show of nicely done local photos by Stuart Isett. Articles like this tend to make obvious the fact that Forks isn’t a secret any longer–but fall is a perfect time to visit without a lot of hoopla and Forks, LaPush and the West End continue to welcome all visitors. C’mon up and check us out!
