There are lots of activities for folks looking for diversion. The vintage Skunk Train has a depot in Fort Bragg where you can depart for a scenic trip through the redwoods. Our local visitor center, the Ford House, provides all sorts of information about attractions and activities as well as historical insights into the area. It’s located on the beautiful Mendocino Headlands, overlooking the ocean with paths along the bluffs and down to the beach. A variety of annual events bring an impressive array of musical and cinematic talent to our little village, so be sure to check out the Mendocino Music Festival and the Mendocino Film Festival for inspiring performances and screenings. Wine and food festivals add another delicious reason to visit. For the botanically inclined, there’s a botanical garden in Fort Bragg as well, where you can stroll through 47 acres of botanical exhibits all the way down to the ocean.
