The fictional place was built in the Pacific Northwest’s woodsy towns

Twin Peaks has a special place in the hearts of Washingtonians as one of the most beloved TV shows ever filmed here—first in 1990 and then again more than 25 years later with Twin Peaks: The Return in 2017.

Like with most series that take place here, some locations were actually in California. But both the 1990 series and the 2017 revival were partially filmed in Washington, including the town’s most iconic locations, like the Double R Diner and the Great Northern Hotel.

Those who haven’t spent a lot of time in the woodsy areas of the Eastside—beyond Bellevue, toward the edge of the Cascades—will find that it’s both beautiful and a little eerie, especially when we get some of that classic foggy, dark weather that defines are area.

We’ve mapped out some of our favorite Twin Peaks filming locations for all your tourism needs. If you’re doing a driving tour of the North Bend and Snoqualmie arm of Twin Peaks, though, Salish Lodge and Spa (you may know it as the Great Northern Hotel) has its own handy, comprehensive map available for guests.

Locations are mapped north to south.

1. The Palmer house

708 33rd St
Everett, WA 98201

The Palmer family house is relatively far away from North Bend in Everett’s Rucker Hill neighborhood. The home last sold in September 2014 for $500,000 after a Kickstarter campaign to turn it into a Twin Peaks museum and bed and breakfast failed. The present owner says she welcomes Twin Peaks fans, as long as people are nice about it.

2. The Roadhouse

The sheriff's department used to be the gatehouse to Packard's Sawmill. Today it’s occupied by Dirtfish Rally School, in case you want to learn some cool driving tricks.

5. Ronette's Bridge

Used to transport lumber in and out of the Snoqualmie Falls Lumber Company, the bridged where Ronette Pulaski was introduced closed for for rail not long after the filming of Fire Walk With Me. It’s now a pedestrian bridge, part of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail, which makes it even easier to explore.

6. The Welcome to Twin Peaks sign location

Snoqualmie, WA 98065

Another iconic shot from the opening credits, here's the spot where the “Welcome to Twin Peaks” sign stands with Mount Si in the background. Around the time of the The Return’s premiere, the sign was installed permanently.

7. Big Ed's Gas Station

8606 Preston-Fall City Rd SE
Preston, WA 98050

"Big" Ed Hurley ran this local gas station in the show and helped ward off the evil forces within along with his gang. Until recently, it was host to a local garden chain, warding off the evil forces of weeds—although that location has closed.

8. Twin Peaks High School

Twin Peaks High School high school underwent a massive renovation in years since the show, completely remaking the interior and exterior to get rid of those red, zig-zag stripes, but it doesn’t matter anyway—it’s being demolished. If you want a piece of it, though, local salvage shop Second Use managed to snag some of the furnishings before it started coming down.

9. Double R Diner

The Double R Diner—Twede’s Cafe outside of Twin Peaks—is one filming location for the new series that fans know a decent amount about. When the revival series was filming there in September 2015, fans were able to get a peek at a remodel to restore the cafe to its ’90s glory, and since it was and is a fully-operational restaurant, diners were able to get a peek at the menu board decor.

10. Blue Diamond Motel

43200 SE North Bend Way
North Bend, WA

Known in the show as the Blue Diamond Hotel, it's actually the Mount Si Motel. Located near the Double R Diner, they've put a sign up on the wall of the room used to film scenes from the show.
