Experience Fort Bragg

The State of California and Mendocino County are under Shelter-in-Place Orders. While the City of Fort Bragg normally prides itself on welcoming visitors to our Coast, that is not possible now. Following Governor Newsom’s announcement yesterday, in which he stated that most State Park parking lots would be closed and urged Californians to take the Shelter-in-Place Orders seriously, the City of Fort Bragg is closing City Parks and parking lots, including those for the Coastal Trail. Travel in Mendocino County for Nonessential purposes is a threat to our county’s health and adherence is enforceable by law. All Mendocino County and Fort Bragg hotels, lodges, bed & breakfast and vacation rentals are closed to visitors. Please stay safe at home. We will welcome you back to Fort Bragg once the Orders are lifted.

Thank you,
Tabatha Miller
City Manager

Our Story

Welcome to historic Fort Bragg, California.

Our town was forged by land and sea, through sheer grit and determination, by explorers, lumberjacks, and fishermen. Today, we’re a community of doers, builders, artists, and adventurers who use our hands to live. We negotiate the elements, we steer our vessels and cast our lines, we crack the shells of our dinner, we create, we get things done.

Here, everything feels larger than life: the towering redwoods of Russian Gulch State Park, the craggy bluffs of Glass Beach, the bustle of Noyo Harbor, the winding path of the Coastal Trail. There’s a mythic quality to this place, a sense of mystery that suggests forgotten tales and old legends waiting to be discovered and retold.
