Mendocino, Amen. Four hours from San Francisco rests Mendocino, known for its dramatic coastline, redwood trees, blackberries, apples, wineries and farm-to-table food. It is the perfect place to mend your weary soul. We’ve just returned from a jaunt there and are happy to report their legendary 90 miles of Pacific coastline, Anderson Valley wine region and key tourism areas of Fort Bragg, Mendocino, Little River and Point Arena Lighthouse were untouched by the fires. Scenic coastal Highway 1 and Mendocino County’s “Inspiration Highway” 101 are 100 percent fully operational and all tourism hotels and attractions remain unaffected, including 450+ hotel properties and 90+ wine tasting venues. We happily hiked the cliffside trails, walked the beaches, marveled at art galleries and saltbox houses and inhaled the fragrant, pure sea air. Ukiah and Willits as well as the nearby attractions of the City of 10,000 Buddhas, Ridgewood Ranch (home of Seabiscuit), Vichy, Orr Hot Springs and the ancient redwood forests of Montgomery Woods State Reserve remain as they always were. We tasted fine wines at Lula Cellars, enjoyed blissful nights at The Inn at Newport Ranch and Brewery Gulch Inn, feasted at Trillium Café and Little River Inn, marveled at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens and rode the historic Skunk Train.

Happy traveling,
