Forks Washington Prepares For A Decline in Tourism

It's been a running storyline here, there, and everywhere: Twilight fans have boosted tourism numbers for the towns of Forks and La Push ever since the books were released and especially since the film series began.

The last two years, particularly, seemed to mark an all-time high point for tourism in these areas. For instance, in 2009, the number of tourists which came to the town in July alone exceeded all of 2008's tourist numbers. More on that here. Also, the town got a bit of a facelift to recognize its Twilight ties in 2009. Read here for more on that.

Now, though, the town of Forks is bracing itself for the end of Twilight tourism.

According to Peninsula Daily News, the Forks Chamber of Commerce met this week to discuss the status of their finances, and the subject of Twilight's end became a big issue.
