Ferndale is a very small, quaint city based in Humboldt County, California. The population of the city is around 1,400. The city has preserved a lot of the Victorian style storefronts and homes throughout the area. Ferndale is the northern most front between California's Lost Coast and the city, which is located on the border of a wide open plain near the Eel River and the widespread reserves of the Coastal Redwood forests.
The Arcata Eureka is the closest airport to Ferndale, California and it is approximately 60 kilometres from the centre of the city. Some of the most idyllic and beautiful sites lay beside the Lost Coast. The drive is lined with pastures full of grazing cows, and the best part of the trip would have to be through the Redwood Forest.
It may seem odd to describe a cemetery to be beautiful, but the Ferndale Historic Cemetery offers splendid views. The cemetery is situated on a hill that overlooks both the city and the ocean. With a lot of older period graves, history enthusiasts are sure to enjoy it.
The Ferndale Museum is both a historical and educational museum, and its key purpose is to render an appreciation and curiosity for the culture and heritage of Ferndale. The Museum preserves the artefacts that were used by the native residents.
The Golden Gate Mercantile is a shop, an antique place and a museum all rolled into one. Delectable Victorian dishes are also served here. The Blacksmith Shop sells hand forged lamps, house fittings and jewellery items. At Fern Cottage you can delve into the fascinating history of the Russ family, and see exactly how life was back in 1866.
Centerville Beach is a beautiful, scenic long beach along the coastline of the city, perfect for those romantic walks hand in hand with the one you love. The Ferndale Public Library is the only Carnegie Library in north western California.
