You might not know this, but most people’s dream California road trip is more or less a list of things to do in Mendocino.
What do you think of when you hear the words ‘California road trip’?
Perhaps it’s grand coastal views, world famous beaches, a day of cruising down Hwy 1 in a convertible with good company by your side.
You might add in a hike in a redwood forest, a sea lion colony, a night of camping in the desert, or a day of exploring one of the many national parks. In the right season, you might even add in a day of snowboarding at Mammoth after a couple days of surfing off the coast.
California has a wealth of options on hand for any traveler or local that’s adventurous at heart, and its northern city, Mendocino is home to most of those options. It’s a state that I continue to discover a little more of each time I come back.
