If you’re the type that likes to hop in the car on Saturday morning and hit the backroads for some fun and adventure, keep reading. Just a couple of hours north of San Francisco in on one of my favorite weekend getaway regions in the state: Mendocino County.

With more than 4,000 square miles of unexplored wilderness, breathtaking coastal vistas, towering redwoods, adorable towns and villages, and world-class food and wine, Mendocino County offers endless discoveries. Here are a few of my top picks.

The darling of Northern California’s coastal towns, this refurbished replica of a New England-style fishing village—complete with a white-spired church—is the region’s most popular tourist destination (it’s cute beyond words).
