Our trip to Mendocino County was not long when compared to some of our other trips, but I’m proud of how many places from our list of things we wanted to try we actually checked off. I’ve made this Guide to Mendocino county to note some of the ones that really made us smile.
Bernillo’s Pizza and Subs
After being ignored at Piaci, we headed here. Owner was super friendly, pizza was great.

We really enjoyed our hosts, so we might be partial, but Little River Inn is our favorite place to stay overnight, romantic and away from town.
