Arts and Culture Weekend Getaway in Mendocino
Summer is by far the warmest, but busiest, season in Mendocino and throughout the North Coast, so you'll need to book as far in advance as possible for lodging and restaurants. (Most hotels and B & Bs require a two-night minimum during the high season.) The winter offers colder, rainier weather, but as early as April, sparse crowds and a chance to spot gray whales as they migrate north are good reasons to go.
A highlight during the fall is Mendocino County's Wine & Mushroom Festival in November. On the docket are 'shroom-centric dinners and guided mushroom walks, as well as live music. Crab lovers should consider the Crab & Wine Festival, held every January. This crab-tastic extravaganza includes all-you-can-eat crab feeds, winemaker's dinners, cook-offs and wine competitions, plus crustacean-focused cruises and cooking classes.
