California Road Trip

Hello Fabulous People!

Thinking of taking a road trip this summer? Well, there are some wonderful places to visit in California. We have a little bit of everything here, the ocean, mountains, valleys, deserts, and forests. One of my family's favorite spots is in Fort Bragg, on the Mendocino Coast.

Although the water is quite chilly, it is absolutely beautiful! There is plenty to do around Fort Bragg & Mendocino. We often camp at MacKerricher State Park. The campsites are just a short walk away from the beach.

We like to comb the coastline to see what wildlife we can spot. So do the people on horseback.

The coast is full of a vast variety of plant and animal life.

From MacKerricher Camp Grounds, you can either ride your bike on the paved trail into town, or you can hop in the car. It is approximately 5.5 miles to our family favorite, CowLick's Ice Cream Shop on Main Street. My husband and I also love North Coast Brewing Co. Taproom, great beer and yummy food! The quaint downtown area is full of shops for the souvenir enthusiast.

Another nice spot to check out, is Glass Beach! The beach and rocks are gleaming with multi-colored beach glass. The only thing you can take at this beach, is a picture. It's fun to hunt for the different colored gems, but we just snap pictures, and leave the little treasures for others to enjoy as well.

Fort Bragg offers a wide variety of entertainment for all in the family! On your way in or out of town, you can also swing into Mendocino. With it's delicious restaurants, coffee shops, and upscale gifts & antiques, you are sure to find something that you just can't live without!

Nestled in this cozy village, is also the famous Blair House, just one of the backdrops for Hollywood. This B&B was made famous by the Murder She Wrote TV Series.

So this is just a glimpse into why we enjoy ourselves when we visit Fort Bragg & Mendocino. I hope you get a chance to explore it for yourself!
