Mendocino is a magical place to share with your little ones. So many adventures await in this beautiful part of the world. Play on beaches made of multi-colored sea glass or giant stone “bowling balls”. Go on safari among free-ranging zebras and feed a giraffe – you haven’t really lived until you’ve been kissed by a giraffe! Drive right through a huge, centuries-old tree. Kayak or canoe down a peaceful river where playful otters and seals cavort, or through mystical sea caves. Jump on a vintage train and take a journey into the past though pristine redwoods. Climb to the top of a lighthouse – or two. Explore majestic forests or a beautiful, seaside garden. It’s all here.
You’ll even find kid-friendly wineries and breweries in Mendocino, like Pennyroyal Farms, where there are grape juice tastings and happy goats to pet, or Meyer Family Cellars and Anderson Valley Brewing, where there are disc golf courses and bocce ball courts to enjoy. If you’re looking for inside fun, make a splash at the CV Starr Center, zipping down the water slide or playing in the lazy river. Or curl up with a good book and a stellar view at Gallery Book Shop, where The Great Catsby, the bookshop’s resident cat, might grace you with his presence. Peek through telescopes at Out of This World. Try locally made mushroom ice cream (candy cap mushrooms, that is – they taste like maple syrup!) at Cowlick’s. There are so many fun things to do and enjoy together!
Come and see us. Memories are made here.
