If you are visiting downtown Seattle before driving to Forks, then you might take the Seattle to Bainbridge Island (Winslow) ferry.
If you are traveling from Lynnwood, Everett, Edmonds or North Seattle, you might consider taking the Edmonds to Kingston ferry. Neither the Edmonds to Kingston OR the Seattle to Winslow ferries take reservations and you are loaded on a first come, first served basis. This can make summer travel a little more difficult and some choose to drive around through Tacoma.
It takes 6-7 hours by auto and ferry to drive from Vancouver, British Columbia to Forks. If you choose the Keystone to Port Townsend ferry, then reservations are recommended, especially in the busy summer travel season. This ferry is subject to stormy weather closures in the winter.
If you want to visit “Twilight” movie sites in Oregon and southern Washington, shown at ExperienceTwilight.com or DarkDestinations.blogspot, you could fly to Portland, OR, then rent a car for the 5 hour drive to Forks via Chehalis, Elma and Aberdeen. Two noteworthy sites to visit in Oregon are the Carver Cafe and The View Point Inn.
It is also possible to reach Forks with public transportation, but be aware that some services do not operate on Sundays and some require advance reservations. Once in Forks, there is very limited service to La Push, Neah Bay and Kalaloch, and nothing to the Hoh Rain Forest.
