What to see/do from Healdsburg to Mendocino?

We will be staying in Mendocino for a few days after leaving Healdsburg/Sonoma and Napa. Are there things to do and places to see on way up to Mendocino? Its approx a two hour drive, correct?

Anderson Valley is lovely, a brewery and many wineries. Then drive along the Navarro River under the redwoods to the coast. Stop at VanDamm or Russian Gulch State Park check out the beach. Enjoy the drive.

Definitely drive through the Anderson Valley. It's very unpretentious. As mentioned above, the AV Brewing Co. is a great place to chill out with a beer on their dog friendly patio. Also, there are lots of wine tasting rooms. Pennyroyal has a cool tasting room. (Be sure to take the farm tour and visit the little goats!) The Roederer Estate in Philo has great bubbly.

Coppola winery north of Healdsburg has a fun Hollywood exhibit, swimming pool, cafe, and bocci ball.

The drive on HIghway 128 has a variety of tasting rooms.

The 128 route through the Anderson Valley is shortest and most direct from Healdsburg but the drive up Hwy 1 along the coast is the most scenic.

The Mendocino Music Festival has something for everyone; Early Music, big band, light opera, folk, bluegrass, classical of all types, piano, etc. Rehearsals are free, otherwise very reasonable. For 2 1\2 weeks starting after the Fourth of July.

Of course there are a gazillion wineries, and a few breweries and cheese makers along the way. Also several fabulous state parks: Hendy Woods is a favorite- on the banks of the Navarro River loaded with birds and redwoods.
