If you were a huge Twilight fan during your pre-teen years (like me), it doesn’t matter if you were Team Edward or Team Jacob. The small town of Forks, Washington must have been on your bucket list. I never would have imagined that I’d be able to cross that off my list several years later. I visited the Northern Olympic Peninsula for my birthday last year and I wanted to share the beauty the Pacific Northwest holds.
We stayed at a cute treehouse style airbnb in Sequim, which is 2 hours away from Forks and the gateway to the Northern Olympic Peninsula. While the neighborhood of our airbnb was beautiful, food choices in Sequim are quite limited. There were only a few good restaurants, one trusty Safeway, a couple of gas stations, and some charming boutiques along Main Street. If you prefer bigger cities and a more populated area, staying at Port Angeles would also be a good idea. The entrance to the Olympic National Park is within the city as well.
