Day 1

Glass Beach: This wonderful beach is a popular destination for Fort Bragg visitors. That’s why we recommend getting out there before the crowds show up. Read More

Point Cabrillo Lighthouse: This lighthouse is the perfect way to spend the evening. Head out there and watch the sunset right along the cliffs. Spectacular views as far as the eye can see. Read More
