"California Coastal Town" Top 5 Page for this destination Fort Bragg by Rixie

Fort Bragg Travel Guide: 78 reviews and 155 photos

Fort Bragg, located on the Pacific Ocean in Mendocino County, has been many things over the years: military outpost, Indian reservation, and lumber port. It even had a thriving Chinatown in the late 19th century, when the railroad was being built.

Today Fort Bragg is a great little town -- a nice weekend spot or a relaxing stopover if you're driving up the coast.

Playing Paul Bunyan at the train station.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Interesting shops, small town charm
  • Cons:Fog, not much night life
  • In a nutshell:Relaxing stop on your way up the coast

    I've always wanted to see the Redwoods (and the little towns along the way). Nice page Laverne.

    Shame about the rail going down the tube, excuse the pun :o) I think rail can actually make money if used right (but then I'm an ex rail freight worker :o) Enjoyed reading your pages. Ann :o)
