  • Glass Beach
    From 1906 to 1967, everything from cars to batteries to bottles, cans and appliances were unceremoniously pushed over the cliffs into the ocean — a common practice of seaside cities for centuries. Mother Nature responded to this abuse with a nice surprise in the form of smooth, colored sea glass treasure in a rainbow of colors.
  • Mackerricher State Park
    MacKerricher State Park offers a variety of habitats; beach, bluff, headland, dune, forest and wetland. Tide pools are along the shore. Seals may be seen on the rocks off the park's coastline. More than 90 species of birds visit or live near Cleone Lake, a former tidal lagoon. During winter and spring, the nearby headland provides a good lookout for whale watching. The park is popular with hikers, joggers, equestrians and bicyclists. The park has a wheelchair accessible nature trail.
  • Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens
    Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is one of only a handful of public gardens that front an ocean shore. The Gardens is highly photogenic and offers world-recognized collections and a diversity of flora all year long.
  • Skunk Train
    Regardless of your departure point, with occasional whistles as your train chugs through tunnels, over bridges, and past open meadows, the train follows the coastal "Redwood Route" as it has since 1885. It is the towering trees, a glimpse of a deer drinking from the Noyo River, an isolated fisherman's cabin peeking from the forest, and the notion that you have left the rest of the world behind that draw people to the Skunk Train.
  • Noyo Headlands Park
    This is one of the newest segments of the California Coastal Trail, on the headlands west of the City of Fort Bragg. It’s a multi-use, ADA-accessible paved trail with spectacular views, parking, rest rooms, and one-of-a-kind benches made by local artists. There are several ways to access this new public coastal trail, from the west ends of North Harbor Drive, Cypress Street, and Elm Street.
  • Sea Glass Museum
    Glass Beach Jewelry, owned and operated by Capt. Cass Forrington, a retired sea captain, opened its International Sea Glass Museum in January of 2009. It was immediately so popular, drawing thousands of visitors its first year, that Capt. Cass doubled the museum's size in January of 2010, added another room in October of 2011, and another, 'black light', room in April of 2013. The museum is now a 'Must See' for all visitors to the Mendocino coast.

  • Pacific Star Winery
    The imposing redwood and stone barn structure nestles into the cliff side, protected from crashing waves by a flat rock bench eroded over eons. The cellar is filled with French, Hungarian and American oak barrels and specialty equipment suited to handcrafted wine making. Highest quality grapes, open-top fermenters and a portable grape receiving system allow small lot premium winemaking with critical attention to detail. The unique location lets magical forces come into play; waves crash into sea caves under the cellar, naturally filtering wine from its sediment. Salt from sea air deposits on barrels accelerating osmosis while creating viscous and dense wines. A friendly and fun approach to wine tasting makes Paciifc Star an off-the-beaten path experience worth seeking out. Bring a picnic and a group of friends for a memorable day.

    The Fort Bragg-Mendocino Coast Historical Society’s headquarters is located in the Guest House Museum.

The house was also used for visiting senior officials from the San Francisco headquarters and VIP guest visitors to the Fort Bragg mill and logging sites. The Guest House served as a show place for Union Lumber wood products. It was constructed from the finest old-growth redwood and contained 67,000 board feet of lumber.
