North Coast / Shasta
Beyond the wine country of Napa and Sonoma lies one of the state’s best-kept secrets: the North Coast and Shasta Cascade regions.
Unspoiled wide, open spaces from the Pacific coast to the central Cascade Mountains offer a breathtaking escape from the city.
Mendocino County offers charming coastal towns, scenic drives, wine tasting, and redwood forests. In the Shasta Cascade region, you'll find seven national forests, eight national and state parks, and the 14,729-foot Mount Shasta.
It's the perfect place for outdoor activities: hiking, biking, canoeing and kayaking, and more.
