2016 Coastal Cruise to Cabot Cove
…a road-trip up the Northern California Coast!
We’re now accepting sign-ups for the three-day, two-night “drive and dine” that begins at Noon on Friday, May 13, with the drive to Larkspur, where we overnight at the Courtyard Marriott at Larkspur Landing ($229 per night). After a “social hour” in the hotel garden (BYOB), we’ll walk to dinner at the Marin Brewing Company (order from menu)!
Following a leisurely breakfast Saturday morning at the hotel (not included in hotel rate), we begin our drive North up California Route One – the Pacific Coast Highway – at 9 AM. One-hundred fifty miles of gorgeous views, twisting roads, and scenic overlooks enchant us as we drive to Mendocino/Fort Bragg.
Along the way we’ll stop in Point Reyes for a coffee/bio break and we’ll have lunch overlooking the ocean at the Timber Cove Inn (order from menu).
Mendocino, the location of fictional Cabot Cove, home to Jessica Fletcher of “Murder, She Wrote”, is a favorite seaside getaway. Charming Victorian homes, delightful art galleries, unique craft and gift shops are all part of the Mendocino experience. Photo opportunities abound as the Pacific surf crashes against Mendocino Head! And Fort Bragg offers lots to see and do too!
Our hotel Saturday night will be the Holiday Inn Express in Fort Bragg ($149 per night). We’ll settle in and then enjoy dinner at Silver’s at the Wharf, a delightful seafood restaurant down in Nogo Harbor in Fort Bragg (order from menu).
Sunday breakfast and return trip to Reno are on your own. We’ll provide some suggested routes and sites along the way.
We have already reserved 12 rooms at the hotels so you need call us to confirm your room (please do not call the hotels directly).
To sign up call Alice or John Strom @ 851-3000. Deadline to sign up for this tour is Thursday, April 28 (or when all slots are taken).
This tour will be limited to 12 total vehicles – so sign up now to guarantee your place!
