Oakland to Mendocino: Coast or 101 to 128?

Jump to last reply

We're headed from Oakland to Manchester, CA (near Mendocino) this weekend and looking at itinerary options. I've narrowed it down to two and would love to hear feedback. Both of these drives look great - we love both coast views and tree/vineyard drives. We're leaving Oakland around 9:00 and can check in to our spot starting at 4:00.

Any compelling reasons to pick one of these routes or the other (or something different?

Thanks!

Coastal:
Oakland up past Petaluma and then over to Bodega Bay.
Lunch in or near Bodega Bay.
Visit Gualala to see town, art center, views
Coastal stops for views along the way up to Manchester

101/128 Route

Oakland up through Healdsburg
Take 128 at Cloverdale
Stop at some wineries in/near Philo
Take 128 up to the 1 (we keep hearing it's a great drive)
Take 1 South to Manchester area.

Thanks!
