A Local's Guide to Mendocino

From resorts to vacation rentals, hotels and farm stays, there is somewhere for everyone on the Mendocino Coast. Located in northern California, a Mendocino vacation is the chance to explore all the stunning region has to offer. From the beaches to forest trails, Mendocino is an outdoors haven. A popular way to enjoy the town and the countryside is by renting a vacation home, many of which have their own hot tub or private deck.

There area is known for having a number of state parks. The Van Damme state park is home to a beautiful beach and is the starting point for many kayakers looking to explore the Pacific Ocean. Take a walk along Little River into the redwood forests and the pygmy forest, where tiny 100-year-old pine trees line the boardwalk. The Mendocino Headlands State Park is also beautiful, packed with walkways and is a lovely spot to fully appreciate the Mendocino Coast and even possibly spot whales out on the ocean. The Russian Gulch State Park is one of the most popular hiking destinations, namely due to the stunning 36-foot waterfall sitting halfway through the trail. The falls are less than 2 miles from the trailhead, so are easily accessible. Most vacation rental homes in town are just a short drive away from all of these incredible natural landscapes.

One of the most iconic spots near town is the Chandelier Drive Through Tree. Where else can you drive through the trunk of a living tree believed to be over 2,000 years old? Plan to spend at least a few hours on the surrounding site admiring the towering redwood forests and trails, enjoying a picnic along the way. Afterwards, climb aboard the Skunk Train -- another great way to admire the woodlands of the Redwoods.

Another popular attraction is Point Cabrillo Lighthouse, where guests can tour the restored building, the museum, the lighthouse keeper's home, and the surrounding grounds. This is also an ideal spot to watch the gray whale migration which occurs from December to April, as the point has fantastic ocean views. The Mendocino Art Center is also a tourist hotspot, offering educational classes and workshops to those looking to develop their skills in ceramics, fine art, jewellery, and sculpture. There are also monthly exhibits which feature the artworks of both local and regional artists.

Just a short drive away is the quaint town of Fort Bragg. The lumber mill that used to sit in the heart of downtown has now been removed to reveal spectacular ocean views. Meanwhile, new shops and restaurants keep popping up downtown, making it the upcoming spot for a number of vacation rentals, a good alternative to a Mendocino home.
