Aside from a rain coat...

any suggestions for activities in case of rain?

My husband and I will be in Mendocino for 2 days/3 nights. The weather looks to be rainy. If the rains are steady/torrential all of our plans will be scrubbed. Aside from hanging around the motel does anyone know of any indoor activities in the area?

Hopefully, there won't be a steady, heavy downpour for both your days in Mendocino! Definitely go to the Mendocino Art Center (www.mendocinoartcenter.org) on Little Lake St. Plan to enjoy the wonderful cuisine at restaurants like Cafe Beaujolais (www.cafebeaujolais.com) and Mousse Cafe at the Blue Heron Inn (www.theblueheron.com), and if you enjoy wines, visit the Glendeven Inn (less than 2 mi. south of Mendocino Village) where you can taste and buy a nice selection, plus enjoy their art gallery. You can certainly visit any number of wineries/tasting rooms in the surrounding areas--we have done this in the heavy rain; just go slowly and have good directions! If you'd like to know more about the local history, pay a visit to the Ford Museum (www.mendoparks.org). There are also a number of interesting shops and galleries that you can easily walk to along Main St. in Mendocino Village. While at places like the Museum and the Art Ctr. be sure to talk to staff and ask for other recommendations for rainy days.
