Ferndale is “The Victorian Village.”
Personally I love Ferndale. Ferndale is not only beautiful, with its many restored Victorian homes; it has almost no crime, and an incredible sense of community. The downtown area is within walking distance of most neighborhoods and provides both elegant dining and the best pizza in Humboldt County. From Ferndale you enjoy easy access to the ocean and bay, fishing on the Eel River or hiking in the Redwoods.
