Forbes Traveler has a new article about the best Vampire Vacations … including Forks, Washington:

Then there’s the new go-to destination for tween vampire fanatics, Forks, Wash., the real town featured in the fictional “Twilight” series. Tours include stops at Charlie and Bella Swan’s house — though it only exists in the novel, the McIrvin family has volunteered their own home as the official house.

There’s even a Twilight cruise in the works for 2010. Featuring stars of the movies, the cruise to Alaska will have autograph signings, a costume ball, and all things “Twilight” all week long. Linda Wolf, owner of Cruises, Cruises, Cruises, Inc. believes that there is so much interest in the cruise because “fans want a forum to discuss their love of the story with the stars themselves and with other fans.”

Other destinations mentioned in the article include Transylvania, home of Dracula, and New Orleans — the setting of many of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles books and other modern vampire stories.
