Mendocino, California is another small town nestled in this large state. It's an unincorporated town of roughly 900 residents. The small beach town, despite its notorious size, is iconic for vacation getaways to the Pacific Ocean. The climate, unlike most areas in California, is not as hot as you'd think. It's warm and sometimes dry, but with it sitting on the beach, it's cooler than other hot and dry areas in the state. Often times, it experiences a Maritime Mediterranean climate, often good weather for beach adventures, boating and fishing.
That's not all this Maritime town has to offer. It's also booming with arts and culture and attractions that draw in thousands of tourists for a relaxing (and sometimes exciting) vacation spot.
