Answer Seattle, Washington has one rain forest in it so it can be considered a temperate rain forest biome. If one were to look on a map of biomes you could also consider it part of the alpine biome. . I agree with the temperate rain forest, though I would not call it alpine.
Forks is a real city, but you must realize that it is a real small town near the coast of Washington. There is not a college there but you may go to a college in a nearby city--like Seattle.

What is now Seattle has been inhabited since the end of the last ice age. Archaeological excavations at West Point in Discovery Park, Magnolia, confirm that the Seattle area has been inhabited by humans for at least 4,000 years. tohl-AHL-too ("herring house") and later hah-AH-poos ("where there are …horse clams") at the mouth of the Duwamish River in what is now the Industrial District has been inhabited since the 6th century BC. By the time the first European settlers arrived in the area, the Dkhw'Duw'Absh and Xachua'Bsh people (now called the Duwamish Tribe) occupied at least seventeen villages in the areas around Elliott Bay. The first Europeans to attempt settlement in the area were the Collins Party, who filed legal claim to land at the mouth of the Duwamish River on September 14, 1851. Thirteen days later, members of the Collins Party were on the way to their claim when they passed the scouts of the group of settlers that would eventually found Seattle, the Denny Party. The scouts for the Denny Party, Terry Lee, David Denny, and John Low, would lay claim to land on Alki Point on September 28, 1851, with Terry Low returning to Portland, Oregon carrying a message from David Denny telling his brother, Arthur Denny, to "Come at once." Following the instructions of David Denny, the rest of the Denny Party set sail from Portland and landed on Alki during a rainstorm on November 13, 1851. The landing party's first sight of their new homestead was the roofless cabin that David had been unable to complete because of a fever. After spending a winter of frequent rainstorms and high winds on Alki Point, most of the Denny Party moved across Elliott Bay and settled on land where present day Pioneer Square is located and established the village of "Dewamps" or "Duwamps." The only members of the party that did not migrate to the eastern shore of Elliott Bay were Charles Terry and John Low, who remained at the original landing location and established a village they initially called "New York," after Terry's hometown, until April 1853 when they renamed it "Alki," a Chinook word meaning, roughly, by and by or someday. The villages of New York-Alki and Duwamps would compete for dominance in the area for the next few years, but in time Alki was abandoned and its residents moved across the bay to join the rest of the settlers. David Swinson ("Doc") Maynard, one of the village's founders, was the primary advocate for renaming the village to "Seattle" after Chief Sealth (si'áb Si'ahl) of the Duwamish and Suquamish tribes. Doc Maynard's advocacy bore fruit, because when the first plats for village were filed on May 23, 1853, it was for the Town of Seattle. In 1855, nominal legal land settlement were established and the city was incorporated in 1865 and again in 1869, after having existed as an unincorporated town from 1867 to 1869. .

Not really, they just took pictures of forks and inserted them into the movie. La Push really was in the movie. Most of it was filmed in Helena Oregon.
If u r talking about the one near Virginia, than about, across the united states.
It's small and not too crowded a nice area kind of rural actually Yes, it is small and very foggy! Not even a mile long. There's just a road through it and before you know it, you're out of Forks! La Push is even more foggy and mysterious-looking. But the inhabitants living there didn't seem as… friendly as I thought they were. A sign on one of their lawns said 'Go Away'. :/ If you want to visit Forks sometime and stay a night or two, book it months before because when my family and I went there, there were no motels/hotels open. All full. (Because of friggen Twilight.) (MORE)
