Stable and tranquil, Ferndale consists of tree-shaded streets lined with cozy homes. In many respects, the city itself offers a retreat from the fast pace of metropolitan living.
Most needs can be met close to home in several shopping centers that also include theaters and restaurants. City parks ensure abundant green space and recreational facilities for leisure activities.
