Beaches · State Parks · Scenic Drive
Endowed with a dramatic and undeveloped coast and forests of towering redwood trees, Mendocino County draws residents of the San Francisco Bay Area looking for a peaceful vacation. Tranquil sand beaches backed by cliffs offer prime sunset viewing. State parks present scenic hiking and biking options, and wineries serve up fine California vintages. Mendocino County's nutrient-rich soil has also made it a leading area for the cultivation of marijuana--much of which goes to Bay Area medical cannabis dispensaries--and the area has a reputation for brewing fine craft beers. The county also contains numerous points of historical interest, including lighthouses on the coast and museums detailing the region's past. In Mendocino's easygoing towns, you'll encounter small art galleries and charming boutiques.
