North Coast Small Towns Overview
The North Coast of California has a wide variety of small towns. Some are situated in the shadows of towering Redwood trees. Others are located along the rugged and picturesque coastline. The region of coast from Ferndale to Rockport is known as 'The Lost Coast' due to its remoteness and lack of population. Several small towns of lumber origin have long since given up on logging and now cater to tourism. Stand in the shadow of Giant Redwoods in Redwood National Park outside of Trinidad. Visit Ferndale Village with California's most impressive examples of Victorian architecture. Join a whale watching tour out of Noyo Harbor in Fort Bragg. Climb to the top of the tallest lighthouse in Point Arena. Stay in a quaint seaside village in Mendocino. From the Redwoods to the headlands, you'll find all of the small towns on the North Coast listed on this page.
