California’s North Coast

There’s another California north of the Golden Gate Bridge. One that inspires, indulges, rejuvenates, and provides wonder — allowing you to truly escape to another world. Some have called it quirky, while others have called it the top place to visit in the U.S. for 2018.

The locals simply call it the North Coast.


It’s a region offering over 300 miles of pristine Pacific coastline, over 1 million acres of National Forest and Parks, and over 100 wineries and microbreweries. It’s comprised of four counties: Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake and Mendocino…each offering its own collection of experiences that will more than satisfy any traveller.

It’s where the selfie and the good life converge with jaw-dropping landscapes, and the great outdoors, to put visitors on their path to “unforgettable.”

You’ll be welcomed by quaint towns that preserve the past, offering present-day charm and plenty of down-to-Earth hospitality. You’ll marvel at stunning Pacific coastlines, towering Redwood forests, majestic mountains, sparkling lakes and rivers, abundant wildlife, and a countryside full of idyllic farms and vineyards. The outdoors beckon, with world-class hiking, kayaking, river rafting, biking, fishing, and more. Explore the arts scene, culinary delights, history, shopping, and festivals, while knowing that at the end of the day you can settle in to a charming bed and breakfast, historic inn, campground, or full-service resort.

This is a truly an authentic slice of California. So leave the stress behind and come share the North Coast. The locals are waiting to welcome you with open arms.
