Luxury holidays in Fort Bragg
When to go
Fort Bragg’s Mediterranean-style climate means that it stays temperate year round, although it does get a little cooler along this stretch of Cali coast in the winter. Visit in January and you can join the revels at the Mendocino crab, beer and wine festival.
PlanesThe closest travel hub is the domestic Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport, just over a two-hour drive away. Flights arrive direct here from major US cities (although New Yorkers and those arriving from outside the US will need to stopover). Alternatively, fly into the international airports at San Francisco or Sacramento (both just under a four-hour drive away).
TrainsAside from the Skunk Train, which doesn’t really cater to commuters, the closest is Santa Rosa Downtown station, a two-and-a-half-hour drive away.
AutomobilesThis legendary stretch of Route 1 is prime coastal-cruising territory, and as this is the only main artery going through Fort Bragg, having a car is pretty much essential. If you drive up from San Fran you’ll have the lush green winelands to your right and the cliff-crashing Pacific to your left – awe-inspiring stuff.
