Ferndale

  • A Karen Brown Recommendation

Returning to Hwy 101, about a 10-mile drive brings you to the Ferndale exit. Founded in 1852, Ferndale is the westernmost town (more of a village than a town) in the continental United States. Its downtown with its gaily painted Victorian buildings has changed very little since the 1890s. Main Street is a gem, lined with delightful little galleries and stores—a favorite being the irresistible candy shop where you view, through the window, hand-dipping of delectable chocolates. Many visitors enjoy the Repertory Theater on Main Street where some excellent plays are produced (707-786-5483). Epitomizing the colorful character of the town is the Gingerbread Mansion. Stop at Ferndale’s Museum to learn more about her past as you tour Victorian rooms and see displays of old dairy and smithying equipment. (Shaw and 3rd Street, open Tuesday through Saturday 11 am to 4 pm and Sunday 1 to 4 pm, 707-786-4466.)
