Fort Bragg, California

Along Northern California’s Mendocino Coast, you’ll find the charming town of Fort Bragg. Fort Bragg is probably best known for the colorful Glass Beach, which is covered in a plethora of smooth, colorful seaglass pebbles instead of sand. The beach is part of the the larger MacKerricher State Park, which is great spot to check out some wildlife including harbor seals and tons of native birds.

Nearby, the Skunk Train is a steam locomotive popular with kids and adults alike as it winds through the nearby Noyo River Canyon and redwood forests. After a day full of adventure, head into town for adorable shopping and dining.
