Mendocino is part of the growing trend of micro-trip escapes for those eager to start traveling again. Whether you’re interested in exploring the dramatic shoreline and hiking your way through some of California’s most beautiful hiking trails or sipping your way through Mendocino’s robust wine region and sampling the organic coastal cuisine, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Underwriting support for Journeys of Discovery provided by Nashville's Big Back Yard economic initiative focused on rural communities in the southwest quarter of Tennessee and the Shoals Region of Northern Alabama.
