The North Coast Travel Guide


A village surrounded by redwood forests, orchards, and vineyards, Occidental is a former logging hub with a bohemian vibe. The 19th-century downtown offers a top-notch B&B, good food, and a handful of art galleries and boutiques. On your way, you’ll pass through the neighboring town of Freestone, which has a popular bakery and an excellent winery.
