Welcome to DestinationMendocino.com


The historic village of Mendocino was founded in 1850 as a lumber town, and redwoods from the area were twice used to build San Francisco: during the Gold Rush, and again in the wake of the Great Earthquake and Fire in 1906. The days of lumber are long gone, but the village is now a thriving center for the arts. Along with this great artistic community, there are many fine restaurants and lodging establishments.

Because of the mild climate and the setting, the Mendocino Coast offers many kinds of outdoor (and indoor) activities: birding, hiking, kayaking, fishing, whalewatching, tidepooling, hiking, camping, horseback riding, and more. Many businesses in the area are eco-friendly, and many allow you to share the experience with your pet.
