Fort Bragg, located in coastal Mendocino County along Highway 1, is a quaint, small town with a good old fashioned Main Street. The town also boasts a train depot, mild year round weather and easy access to the beach. Once a military fort that was founded prior to the American Civil war, today it offers visitors plenty to do and most things without the aid of an automobile. Park the car, and enjoy a day exploring town, a ride on the Skunk Train and great local food and wines.

Start your day downtown with breakfast at Eggheads. Decorated in a Wizard of Oz theme, this little joint serves up some yummy food. Try the blackberry pancakes with blackberry syrup, Eggs Benedict with champagne Hollandaise sauce or the grilled veggie omelet with avocado, tomatoes, jack and cheddar cheese. Oh, and if you need to use the restroom just follow the yellow brick road. Literally, just follow the yellow brick road on the floor and it will take you to the loo. Read Full Story
