The scenic Mendocino coast, about three and a half hours north of San Francisco, is an ideal romantic getaway destination with a peaceful atmosphere and beautiful nature.
The town of Mendocino, one of the two main towns on this stretch of coastline, is perched on a bluff above the waters of the Pacific. It is known for its art galleries, restaurants and Cape Cod look and feel.
Ft. Bragg, the second main town, is located about 10 miles north. Historic Fort Bragg includes attractions such as California Western Skunk Train and Noyo Harbor from which chartered whale watching and salmon fishing trips depart.
Hotels in Mendocino and Ft. Bragg cater to travelers who seek to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco at an authentic serene environment.
