Northern California's crown jewel, comprising 4,000 sq. miles – roughly
the size of Delaware, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia combined
– reports that its 90 miles of Pacific coastline, 11 wine appellations
and inland tourism areas are open for business. The Mendocino Complex
Fire remains in a remote wilderness region 60+ miles east of the coastal
destinations of Fort Bragg and Mendocino.

California Scenic Highway 1 and Mendocino's "Inspiration Highway" 101
welcome visitors, along with the county's 450+ hotel properties and 90+
wine tasting venues. Key tourism sites including the cities of Ukiah,
Hopland and Willits as well as the nearby attractions of the City of
10,000 Buddhas, Ridgewood Ranch (home of Seabiscuit), the Skunk Train,
Vichy and Orr Hot Springs and the ancient redwood forests of Montgomery
Woods State Reserve remain untouched.
