Located on the coast in Mendocino County, Elk sits perfectly in Northern California. The best views of the beach sit right beneath you as you look out beyond the cliffs. It is so secluded and private, with just the right amount of town minutes away. Have great drinks, food, and enjoy a hike or two while you’re there.

As a Healdsburg local, I had to include my little slice of heaven on the Cutest Towns in California list. Healdsburg is such a gem as it is located right in the heart of Sonoma County, with all the fun and beauty Northern California has to offer. Visit great wineries, and delicious food, and overall fantastic time.
Healdsburg is surrounded by lots of gorgeous vineyards otherwise known as the Russian River and also Alexander Valley.

A small town with a population of fewer than 800 people, Hopland is such a unique California spot. Located in the Russian River Valley, Hopland is the southern getaway in Northern California.

In Santa Barbara County, Los Olivos is one of the cutest spots to visit. Take a step back to this charming town with an emphasis on their spectacular wine grapes.
