The active Noyo Harbor fishing village sets an engaging backdrop for a Noyo Harbor Inn
stay. Walk your dog around the village, or plan adventures
at the area’s state parks, beaches, botanical gardens and attractions. Ride the famous Skunk Train
. Admire shimmering Glass Beach
at sunset. Photograph Fort Bragg murals
. You’ll find plenty of fun for you and your four-legged friends.
California’s rugged North Coast is a popular outdoor playground
with hiking and biking trails that wiggle along waterfalls, redwood groves and windswept Pacific beaches. Pet parents favor Noyo Beach
, with an off-leash area where the Noyo River meets Noyo Bay. Dogs can also run without leash on Seaside Beach
, six miles north of Fort Bragg. (Please note, some areas are restricted to protect the resident snowy plovers.)
Textile artists, ceramicists, painters and mural collections make downtown Fort Bragg a rich cultural stop
. The dog-friendly Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens
puts flowers in focus, with roses, rhododendrons, dahlias, fuchsias and other beauties blooming throughout the summer season.
