Just a couple of hours north of San Francisco is Mendocino County where you'll discover a place that's worlds away from ordinary. Mendocino County encompasses a number of charming villages with breathtaking proximity to the Pacific coastline, historic attractions, an awe-inspiring redwood wilderness, a bucolic inland landscape of rolling hills, vineyards and tasting rooms, and small towns that haven't lost the true meaning of hospitality. Curl up to the view of the dramatic coast from a seaside inn, stay at an eco-friendly hotel, overnight at a winery villa, find peace at a retreat in the redwoods or rent a Mendocino-style house and stay for a while.
Mendocino County is home to a number of year-round attractions and annual events. Go for a ride on the Skunk Train through the redwood forest. Walk through the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, hike hundreds of trails in state and regional parks, or mountain bike, canoe and kayak. See the rare giraffes and zebras during a tour at B Bryan Preserve, or visit the Gualala Arts Center on the South Coast. Head to the northernmost tip of the county to visit Confusion Hill, and drive through the nearby famous Chandelier Tree (315 feet high). Taste at dozens of wineries located along Highway 128 in Anderson Valley or along Highway 101 in Ukiah, Redwood Valley and Hopland. The experiences are unique and restoring, and waiting for you to discover. Mendocino County: Come and Find Your Happy!
