961 Ukiah St, Mendocino, CA 95460, USA
Anytime we get anywhere near Mendocino, we have to stop at the Brickery, the stand-alone bakery behind the renowned Cafe Beaujolais restaurant. This is where the breads are baked for the restaurant, but the bakers also sell retail right out the...

9529, 9401 CA-1, Mendocino, CA 95460, USA
In Mendocino's Brewery Gulch Inn, the Osprey room (upstairs, southwest corner) commands a view, across Highway 1, of Smuggler's Cove and the Pacific Ocean. The eco-conscious inn occupies a sweet location, away from the road and just a minute or...
Save Place
Russian Gulch State Park, California 95460, USA
The Russian Gulch State Park may have the perfect forest hike: A seven mile loop to a 35-foot waterfall through new growth redwood forests. Start at the beach parking lot and take the Fern Grove trail to the waterfall. Then, loop back on the North...

Caspar, CA, USA
This lighthouse is a pleasant quarter mile walk from the parking lot, so if you have kids make sure you bring a stroller or let them ride their bike—although you will end up carrying the bike back uphill.
Save Place
Little River, CA, USA
Mendocino has a bunch of small beaches along Highway 1. This one is right in front of the Little River Inn, in Little River, a town 2 miles south of Mendocino village.

100 W Laurel St, Fort Bragg, CA 95437, USA
The Skunk Train (formally the California Western Railroad) dates to the 1880s and cruises between Fort Bragg and Willits, over trestles, through tunnels, and past some amazingly old Redwoods. It is indeed a "tourist attraction" but also a...

50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Dr, San Francisco, CA 94118, USA
The de Young Museum, with its perforated copper facade and spiraling tower in the center of Golden Gate Park, is as dramatic outside as it is inside. Follow the widening crack in the sidewalk into the atrium. It's an Andy Goldsworthy–created...
Save Place
610 1st St, Napa, CA 94559, USA
Think of the Oxbow like a high-end shopping mall for food and wine. On the east side of the Napa River, the market brings together a number of epicurean purveyors under one roof (well, technically, it’s three different roofs). The result:...

1141 N Main St, Fort Bragg, CA 95437, USA
Residents of misty, moody Ft. Bragg used to throw their garbage from the cliffs above this beach. Entire cars, thrown into the surf. Then they cleaned it up. Decades later, what remains is just a pretty beach and a seemingly endless amount of...

Glass Beach, Fort Bragg, CA 95437, USA
This is a pretty little beach that I found by accident. It's quite small but very pretty and I only saw two other people while I was there. The beach was formed due to residents in the early 20th century dumping their garbage over the cliff. Now...

Greenwood Creek State Beach, California 95432, USA
Grab a deli sandwich from Elk General Store and head across the road down 1/2 mile to the beach. It is isolated with about 6 people at any given time. It has picnic tables and so much character that it held two busy boys for four hours while we...
Save Place
Fort Bragg, CA 95437, USA
It was a day of variegated culinary indulgences that began with a spectacular vegan breakfast at the Stanford Inn in Little River, continued with a mushroom-dish, wine, and beer tasting at Camp Mendocino in the middle of the redwoods (this was the...

Fort Bragg, CA 95437, USA
This view reminded me of the Jackson Browne song "The Pretender": "I'm gonna rent myself a house in the shade of a freeway."
