Fort Bragg

Fort Bragg

With its original roots as a military garrison and then a gritty lumber town, Fort Bragg skirted under the radar of most visitors. But these days, Fort Bragg has buffed up its image, with new things to see and do. There are some long-standing attractions, most notably the Skunk Train, which chugs into the redwood forests inland to the town of Willits, and Glass Beach, a rainbow of sea glass at MacKerricher State Park. Whale watching boats and fishing charters depart from rustic Noyo Harbor. But perhaps the most telling indicator of the town’s evolution is the Union Lumber Company Store at Redwood and Main. Where lumber employees used to shop for basic provisions, visitors and locals can shop at boutiques and galleries before refueling with a plate of local artisanal cheeses and a glass of Pinot Noir from a Mendocino County winery.
