About 3 year(s) ago by MediaConnect
California's North Coast is an idyllic destination, where the rugged ocean meets the majestic redwood forests. From the crashing surf and sound of the whales to the exuberant wine and food culture, the North Coast is an amazing escape just three hours up the coastline from San Francisco.
With a new generation of farmers, chefs and winemakers that focus on celebrating and sustaining the land, the Redwood Coast offers a cool food and wine scene. Embark on a culinary journey to the beautiful and romantic hamlet of Mendocino or the former logging town of Eureka, gateway to Redwoods National and State Parks, and discover a fresh taste of Northern California.
From towering redwoods to hilly vineyards to dramatic ocean vistas, the North Coast and Mendocino and Humboldt counties are blessed with charming wineries and vineyards. The region's rich soil and cool climate produce exceptional wines. So after exploring the Redwood Highway or hiking the Lost Coast Trail, discover fresh local food - from olive oil to goat cheese - washed down with a smooth pinot noir.
With 20 wineries, Humboldt County boasts some of the most distinctive wines on the North Coast. Enjoy a wine journey to wineries like Bergeron Winery in Trinidad, Briceland Vineyards in Redway, Elk Prairie Vineyard in Myers Flat and Winnett Vineyards in Willow Creek. Savor a pour in the quaint setting at Riverbend Cellars & More Tasting Room in Eureka or at Crush in Arcata, an eclectic tapas and wine bar.
Now, let's not forget the North Coast's adventuresome microbrews. Foodies and beer lovers will discover hoppy heaven at Los Coast Brewery in Eureka, where you'll fall in love with the yummy Great White ale, and Eel River Brewing Company in Fortuna. Sip your way through California's hottest artisan beer destination with Humboldt Beer Tours in Eureka, with transportation to breweries and beer bars and samples of the county's craft beer.
Whether sipping wines in the vines or dinner cruising on Humboldt Bay, you'll find fantastic places to eat, drink and enjoy the weekend in the North Coast. Hampton Inn Arcata and Holiday Inn Express Eureka put you in the heart of North Coast's wine and beer country - where the good life is celebrated with every taste and toast.
