Fort Bragg

Fort Bragg is a working-class town that many feel is the most authentic place on the coast; it's certainly less expensive than its neighbors to the south. The declining timber industry has been steadily replaced by tourism, but the city maintains a local feel since most people who work at the area hotels and restaurants also live here, as do many artists. A stroll down Franklin Street, one block east of Highway 1, takes you past numerous bookstores, antiques shops, and boutiques.
