We were hosted by the Mendocino Botanical Gardens.
When I was planning my itinerary for my latest trip to the northern California coast, the Mendocino Botanical Gardens were not on my radar, but I am so glad I was able to visit. This is a very family-friendly activity that makes for some great photo opps.
I was really hoping to be able to eat at the little gourmet cafe at the Botanical Gardens, but because of the rain, everyone used the outdoor eating area as a shelter and we weren’t able to find a table. The menu looked delicious, though.
There were so many different plants and flowers, and various trails to take through the gardens. Some trails were easier than others, but all of them were beautiful.
