Several parks dedicated to the early settlers and their pioneer style of living surround the community. Ferndale also has spectacular, long-distance views of Mount Baker from its Main Street.
Ferndale is close to many nearby attractions including Mount Baker, the San Juan Islands, numerous lakes, and the Nooksack River.
