The coastal village of Mendocino, California, is a perfect weekend destination for those looking for a unique vacation. You'll have just enough time to explore the rugged natural beauty of the area, but don't blame us if it leaves you wanting more! To get a taste of all that the area has to offer, spend a day exploring the coastline by hiking one of the many trails that take visitors past grottos, sea arches, and blowholes. If you prefer to be on the water, you can kayak, canoe, or swim. There are also options for whale-watching tours, and families will love seeing one (or both!) of the area's lighthouses. For a contrast to the sea, head east for about 30 miles to visit Montgomery Woods State Reserve. There, you can explore a famous Redwood grove; what was once believed to be the tallest tree in the world can be found on those lands. Pack a picnic and enjoy lunch among the Redwoods and lush ferns. These unique rentals near Mendocino are the perfect complement to a vacation that is anything but ordinary. Check out what is available, and begin planning your getaway now!
