In case you've been living under a rock these past five years and have never heard of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight book series, allow us to give you a crash course: girl meets vampire, girl loves vampire, girl's best friend is a werewolf, the vampire and the werewolf both love the girl. It's all very romantic.
The series take place in Forks, Washington, and since the Twilight fangirl craze took off, the town has done its best to capitalize on the series' popularity. Thousands of fans from around the world have traveled to Forks to get the ultimate Twilight experience. Recently a brave Seattle Weekly intern made the long drive to Forks to see what all the fuss was about.
