Picnics

In your room, on the beach, at a winery, a State Park or the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens: Order a picnic to be delivered to your room. If you’ll be arriving late, after the restaurants close (as early as 8:30 in the off-season), it’s an especially good option for dinner or a late night nosh.
