The magnificent Mendocino Coast is noted for its spectacular ocean views and charming Victorian villages dotting the scenic coastline. Mendocino village is situated on a peninsula and surrounded on three sides by picturesque wildflower covered bluffs and crashing surf. Established in the 1850s, many of the New England style Victorians have been lovingly restored into romantic inns, world class restaurants and quaint shops. It takes about an hour to stroll the town if you aren’t lured into shopping along the way. The entire village of Mendocino is designated as a National Historic District.

Mendocino's weather has the wild and unpredictable nature of most great beauties! You may start out in a romantic foggy landscape in the village and emerge into glorious, grape-ripening sunshine once you drive further inland. Be prepared for both! You can check current weather conditions below.
