Turning Trash into Tourism at Glass Beach
The saying “One man’s trash is another person’s treasure” has never been so true in Fort Bragg. Fort Bragg has beautiful coastal walks, however veer off the path and head down to the beach and you’ll find more than just sand. Former city trash dumpsites have yielded beautiful sea glass that has been tumbled and smoothed by the ocean waves. Go at low tide and you’ll see the colorful pieces of smooth glass all over the beach. This is one time when walking on glass is safe!
