Fortuna Vacation Rentals
Fortuna, also referred to as the “Friendly City”, is centrally located in Humboldt County and sits on the bank of the beautiful Eel River. Considered to be the gateway to the giant redwoods, Fortuna is just minutes away from several state parks, beaches and historic points of interest, and make for an excellent home base during your redwood forest vacation. There are seemingly endless opportunities for outdoor recreation in and around Fortuna. Hike the Headwaters Forest on the Salmon Pass Trail to explore one of the largest redwood preserves in existence today or head inland a short distance on Highway 36 to the various redwood state parks that dot this route. You can even stop for a dip in the waters of the Van Duzen River along the way. If golfing is your thing don’t miss the famous and historic 18-hole Redwood Empire Golf Course. Or for a nice leisurely drive through some of the most beautiful parts of the country cruise on down to the Avenue of the Giants, just 12 miles south of Fortuna, or take a spin on the Lost Coast Loop which weaves its way through the neighboring communities of Ferndale, Petrolia, and Honeydew. After a day of exploring the area head over the America’s 1st certified organic brewery, the Eel River Brewing Company, for a Humboldt Grass-fed burger and an award-winning specialty brew.
Or enjoy fine dining at the Bear River Casino in the River’s Edge Restaurant. Downtown’s Main Street is also a happening place with lots of restaurants and shops.
