Fans have been flooding into Forks to see the real life version of Bella’s hometown since the series boomed in popularity back in 2007 after the debut of Meyer's third book in the saga, "Eclipse." Though "Twilight" was released all the way back in 2005, Gurling said it wasn’t until 2008 that the influx of visitors really hit — and it’s only been increasing. In June of 2008, 1,731 people signed the visitors log at the Chamber of Commerce. Last month, 8,312 visitors signed the log.

If I ever get to go to Forks, I'd get a kick out of trying some of the Twilight-inspired menu-items that are now featured at Forks restaurants, such as like BelLasagna & EdBread (wha?) at Pacific Pizza. And, you can stay in a Twilight room at the Pacific Inn Motel.
Not exactly Mr. TCA's idea of a dream vacation, unfortunately. :-)
