Join Us for Fourth of July Weekend … Great Fireworks and Big Salmon BBQ
—Posted Thursday, June 16th, 2011 at 4:26 pm—
Since 1970, the Salmon Restoration Association has sponsored the World’s Largest Salmon BBQ in Noyo Harbor to raise money to restore salmon to local rivers and the ocean. This year, both the salmon barbecue and the City of Fort Bragg-sponsored fireworks will be held on the same day, Saturday, July 2.
The barbecue is from 2pm – 6pm in Noyo Harbor, about a mile south of the Atrium Bed and Breakfast Inn. There is parking at Todd Point with a shuttle bus. At around 9 pm near Pomo Bluffs Park and the Noyo Harbor bridge, you’ll see a great fireworks display. It will be a real old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration in Fort Bragg.
MacKerricher State Park Visitor Center a Popular Destination

You can ride horses on the beach or ride your bike on the Old Haul Road that once carried logging trucks from the forest to the mill (now closed). You’ll find walking trails, a lake, wildlife viewing platforms (Laguna Point) and a visitor center.
We like the visitor center as a great place to get oriented: there’s a gray whale skeleton out front that teaches about the annual whale migration from Alaska to Mexico. Inside is a natural history museum of local animals. There is also a gift shop and a ranger or friendly park aide willing to share their knowledge of the park and the adventures awaiting you. We’ll help you get there.
Mild to Wild – Sea Kayaking for the Young and Young at Heart

We can always count on Jeff and Cate at Liquid Fusion to show our guests a great time. Whether it’s a sunset bird paddle on the serene Noyo River, exploring sea caves outside the harbor or taking a wild ride on waves through a rocky ocean garden, there is something for every age and every member of the family. Dogs are welcome and even get their own life vests. You won’t be disappointed.
The “Atrium”: a Unique Experience on the Mendocino Coast

We call ourselves the “Atrium” Bed and Breakfast Inn because our atrium is the warm enclosed garden area that bridges the main inn and adjacent rooms. It’s a hideaway, place to taste wines, read a book, breakfast al fresco, enjoy the flowers or just do nothing. It also a reason to visit our inn because there is no place like it on the Mendocino Coast.
