Ferndale is a Victorian village along Highway 101, nestled between the redwoods and the rugged northern coastline of California. The Victorian Gingerbread style architecture of the late 1800s has been wonderfully preserved in Ferndale, and the entire village is a California Historical Landmark! Take your time to explore Ferndale's old-fashioned shops, antique stores, art galleries and specialty boutiques. You can take a ride in a horse drawn carriage or watch candy being made by hand. Ferndale is also just minutes from Russ Park, a 100-acre forest bird sanctuary and the Eel River Delta. Or, spend an exhilarating day at the beach or exploring the ancient redwoods. At the end of the day, snuggle beneath a down-filled comforter as you rest in front of the fireplace at one of the village's Victorian Bed & Breakfasts! For something more exciting, participate in the Victorian Village Murder Mysteries Weekend! There are a number of special events and festivals in Ferndale year round, and the holidays are a magical time when the village shops sparkle with light and everyone gathers for the lighting of America's tallest living Christmas tree at the end of Main Street. Ferndale will remind you of a place in fairy tales, but it's a real town and is waiting to be discovered by you!

Ferndale Weather & Climate

The scenic redwoods coast area of Northern California has a mild year round climate that is completely dominated by the Pacific Ocean. This region that is located approximately two hours south of the Oregon State line experiences frequent and abundant rain October through April. These months account for about 90 percent of the annual precipitation, which averages 40 inches. The months of June through September are generally dry. Warm summer days are marked by low clouds and fog which usually dissipates by early afternoon with sunny conditions remaining until late evening when low clouds move back in. Temperatures are quite moderate with the annual range being one of the smallest in the lower 48 states. Fall is marvelous along the northern coast with warm, sunny days and calm ocean conditions. Areas over the coastal mountains, as close as 40 miles away, can have a much greater range of temperature than the coastal areas.
