“Perfect winter weather”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Ideal weather for whale watching and observing the might of the powerful Pacific surf. The Mendocino coast is stunning. The village is on the headlands and much like a historic beacon on the bluff to welcome you.

“Gorgeous coast!”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

The waves were really huge! NorCal rocks! Next time, we would like to spend more time hiking and going to the beaches.

“Wow”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

This is the prettiest California coast I have seen other than Monterey which has been our "go to" place. There is so much to explore and it's just stunning.

“Beautiful California ...”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

From Mendocino to Fort Bragg, the road is side and not as curvy as the rest of Hwy 1 and there are lots of places to pull off and view the coast. We stopped at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and were amazed at the diversity of the plants. The garden is a lovely stroll. Now I want to come back in February/March when the rhododendrons are in bloom!

“Short Vacations.”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Beautiful and scenic. California coastal route 1 through the redwoods was memorable. Bodega to Fort Bragg
is a longer journey but is a photo taking pleasure
