Rhododendron "Naselle" Special to Road Trips for Gardeners
More than 124 species of rhododendrom thrive in Coastal Mendocino County, California — some of which even have heavenly scents to match their vibrant beauty, unusual for these intense yet stately flowers.

The Inn at Newport Ranch, 31502 North Highway One, Fort Bragg, California, invites visitors to revel in these spectacular blooms with their Spring Bloom Special. Now through June 15, 2019, guests who book a two-night stay at the Inn will be welcomed on arrival by a small springtime bouquet and two tickets to visit the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens to witness the rhodies in full-bloom splendor.

Insider tip: When guests mention the Spring Bloom Special while booking, they receive the Spring Bloom add-ons at no cost.
