The Community 

  • Thanks to tree-shaded streets, an inviting downtown, a vibrant cultural life, and a variety of reputable schools, Ukiah was once named California’s best small town—and the sixth best in the entire country. The largest city in Mendocino County, Ukiah is home to a bumper crop of Bartlett pears, Victorian architecture, and a distinctive laid-back vibe. 
  • With over 300 days of sunshine each year, Ukiah is a year-round paradise for outdoor adventure. Ukiah is a favorite destination for hiking, mountain biking, boating, river rafting, golf, and exploration. Hike and bike on a host of hiking trails in the western hills and Ukiah’s cycle-friendly streets, follow the signs to Lake Mendocino for outdoor recreation, or take a trek to the City of 10,000 Buddhas for some spiritual renewal.
  • You can soak in natural beauty and mountain views, while being located two hours from Napa Valley and only three hours from Sacramento. Also known as the greenest wine region in America, Ukiah is surrounded by more than 20 organic wineries and acres of biodynamic vineyards.
  • With 90+ miles of coastline, Mendocino County has a beach for everyone. The southern coastline is home to the great sweep of Manchester State Beach and just north is Bowling Ball Beach. A favorite with locals is the pristine cove at Jug Handle State Reserve.
