The Perfect Day in Mendocino County
Some destinations have so many activities that it’s almost stressful for travelers. It’s a similar situation in Ukiah, except there is nothing overwhelming about it. There’s a reason we were rated one of the top-ten cities to live in the U.S. In case you do happen to feel a bit stressed out with the decision making, we’ve mapped out the perfect day from start to finish, while staying at Super 8 Ukiah.


Get Off to the Right Start

Alarm clock’s are for waking up for work. It is the one sound that can ruin any vacation. Just let our front desk know when you’d like to be woken up and we’d be happy to greet you each morning. Have yourself a cup of morning Joe before you even leave your room for the day. You have all trip to check out the surrounding area, so don’t forget what’s right in front of you and try our on-site restaurant, Henny Penny.

It’s okay to be a tourist sometimes. You are in wine country, so go check out some of the world renowned wineries and vineyards. Don’t have a car? No problem! There are a number of bus and taxi services in the area that would love to take you around. Chiarito is an excellent vineyard that could be the great start to a relaxing day. It’s a 2 acre layout with an excellent atmosphere; you’d swear were in Italy!

It Doesn’t Stop There

All that site seeing probably worked back up an appetite. As tasty as Henny Penny was, you should get a feel for the area and try some other restaurants. Star Restaurant is the perfect spot to stop for a good lunch. Its exotic feel and fresh fruit will remind you that you are on vacation, incase somehow you forgot! After you refuel you should take advantage of the great Mendocino weather some more and enjoy some good outdoors. If state parks are your thing, Ukiah State Park will be nothing short of your expectations. There are countless trails and activities that you and your party can enjoy. If state parks overwhelm you a bit then Oak Manor or Observatory Park would be the perfect spot. Both feature excellent spots for picnics and walking. Oak Manor is highly recommended for families.

The Perfect End, For the Perfect Day

After a little down time back at the hotel, enjoy one last meal of the day in the area. Add some culture to your evening and go ethnic for the night. Oco Time is the place you want to go if you are in the mood for some good sushi. Ruen Tong would also be an excellent choice for Tai food. If you aren’t too tired by now i would recommend trying your luck at a popular spot, Coyote Valley Casino. It’s an excellent spot to get a rush with 24 hour gaming after all that relaxing.

Be sure to enjoy a great night of sleep and prepare yourself for round 2 then next day, if you are checking out then be sure to take advantage of Super 8 Ukiah’s express checkout.
