“Inspiring coastline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Although often covered in fog, this area is beautiful and quite inspiring when the fog has lifted. Nice beaches and cliff sides. Great strolling beaches.

“Rugged and Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Driving and walking along the North Coast in the Mendocino area is inspiring and renewing. The air is clear and cool and the wind strong. The views are dramatic and beautiful.

“Breathtakingly beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Words won't do it justice - it really must be seen to be appreciated. Make sure to spend a few days here to relax from all the hiking / wine tasting / city bustle when in SF state. It really is a special place and will leave you feeling super pampered and energized

“Scenic drives, great B&Bs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Scenic drives, great B&Bs. If you are lucky to get a sunny day, it'll be more fun. If it is hot inlands, the weather at the Mendocino coast gets foggy
