  • The scenery here is incredible. My out of state friends and family most often say that the photos "do not look real". The freshness of the offshore winds and the quality of light that gets filtered through the marine layer lends a quality of magical realism that is difficult to fund elsewhere (without a passport). It doesn't hurt that there is something for those who value good grub, small town charm, and authentic artistic temperaments.
  • See great views of Main Street in Mendocino and of the Pacific ocean here. Main Street still looks much as it did in 1870. It is also a nice fairly level hike.
  • Accessible walking trails along the beautiful Bluffs above the wild Northern California coastline. No restrooms. No picnic tables. Just you and the Pacific Ocean crashing below.
  • I love this area, and the beaches and parks around here!! They're beautiful!! I'd really love to move here! I don't like living in Santa Cruz, it's beautiful, but a lot of the people suck, and it's WAY TOO expensive!! I don't know what the landlords and home owners are thinking, charging the insane prices they do?!! But... Oh yeah! Kinda getting off topic!! Haha... It's beautiful and I love it here!!
  • A perfect getaway! A spectacular place to visit.
