The Fortuna center is around the area of Redwood Memorial Hospital and 6 miles east of Downtown Ferndale.

Nine miles from where the Eel River meets the Pacific coast along U.S. Route 101, you'll find Fortuna. Over 11,900 people live in this Northern California town. The town was originally known as Slide Hill, named after the slope on the northeast side of the Eel River. The town name changed to Springville in 1875 when the Springville Mill was established, and the community served as the mill town. When it was discovered that another Springville, California, already existed, the town reverted to the name Slide. More from this guide...

Unsatisfied with this unusual name, the citizens petitioned the California state legislature to finally change the name of the town to "Fortuna," Spanish for "fortune." The name expressed the richness of the landscape, from the rivers to the forests and the valley. When the Eel River and Eureka Railroad was built in 1884, the city became the regional rail hub, allowing the townspeople to easily transport their lumber harvests and crops of berries and fruits to market. The town formally incorporated in 1906.

You can get to Fortuna via U.S. Route 101 with direct access to San Francisco 253 miles south. California State Route 36 connects with Route 101 south of Fortuna. The drive to Fortuna is certainly beautiful, offering views of redwood forests and giant Sequoia trees. The 33-mile Avenue of the Giants takes you through Founders Grove and the Visitor Center near Weott to enjoy the best view of these majestic giants, which can live to be 2,500 years old.

Being so close to the coast, you can also explore the coast nearby. Here, you can bike, hike, canoe, watch the bluffs for local birds, and wander the beaches and tide pools.

Fortuna, California, might not be a big-name attraction, but the city's abundant natural beauty, small-town charm, and fun local attractions will certainly surprise and delight you throughout your visit.

When would be the best time to visit the town of Fortuna, CA?

Coastal weather patterns do affect Fortuna. The Pacific Ocean significantly moderates the climate. Summer highs never typically exceed the low-70s, and winter lows remain in the mid-50s throughout the season.

The most significant weather pattern here is the rainy season. From November to March, Fortuna gets between 11 to 13 days of rain per month. This significant rainfall can make it difficult to get outdoors to do some trail riding or visit the local park, but you can always find local indoor activities like roller skating. The unique mild and wet climate is perfectly conducive to growing giant redwood trees. From April to September, the rainfall tapers off significantly so you can head outdoors to enjoy the mild weather.

Fortuna is home to numerous annual events and festivals, such as the Daffodil Festival, Art and Wine in the Park, the Redwood AutoXpo, the annual Fortuna rodeo, Civil War Days, the Logging Competition, and Apple Harvest Festival, as well as the Hops in Humboldt Festival, the Fortuna concert series, and holiday events. Check the city calendar before your trip to ensure you don't miss any fun and that you can book accommodations well in advance with no availability issues.
