How do you improve upon one of summer's greatest pleasures, the lazy Sunday afternoon barbecue? Humboldt Sweets has it figured out: Just add music, friends - and the Ferndale bakery's world-famous cinnamon rolls.
It doesn't get much better than a fun-filled day with your best friend. But when your pal is of the four-legged variety, it can be a challenge to find pet-friendly activities you can do together. Fortunately, Ferndale has you and your favorite furry buddy covered! From dog friendly hikes to delectable locally baked pet treats, here are our favorite ways to spend an afternoon exploring Ferndale, California with Fido.
When the thermometer’s pushing 100, the car feels like a sauna, and you’re wilting faster than your tomato plants, the lazy days of summer can feel downright sluggish. In the midst of a sizzling California heat wave, a trip to the quaint historic town of Ferndale on the temperate North Coast can be just the breath of fresh air you need.
It’s hard not to smile when you walk into the colorful world of Gathered Handmade in Ferndale, where saturated, spirit-lifting hues, from bubblegum pink and turquoise blue to mint green and marigold yellow, grace nearly every nook and cranny. The vibrant vintage market, which opened early last year, is the perfect fit for a Main Street lined with Painted Ladies - and for owner and local artist Andra Stringer, whose personal style gravitates toward the whimsical, eclectic and bright.
