With just over 15,000 people, Ukiah is the county seat and largest town in Mendocino County.
It is a pleasant town, often praised as a very nice, somewhat old-fashioned small town. Long a centre of the wood-processing industry, it has seen this industry decline in reent years with closure of businesses such as the large Masonite plant. However, the indsutry is still important in this area.
It is located on the upper Russian River valley and there is significant wine industry in the area.
Because of its size, it is the regional commercial centre. It is by far the largest town around, being the largest town on Hwy 101 between Windsor in Sonoma County and Eureka in Humboldt County.
This is the old part of the Mendocino County courthouse, which long ago expanded with a much larger section, but they at least kept the old part (unlike Sonoma County, among others).
Downtown Ukiah is quite attractive and pleasant, if a little sleepy. It's quiet, especially on week-ends, and is not very touristy. Although the largst town in the county and possessing an attractive downtown, it is less touristy than the coastal towns in the county, Mendocino and Ft. Bragg. However, downtown is still alive with a number of businesses, places to eat, etc., and it largely keeps alive an old-fashioned small-town feel. It is attractive with some nie buildings and there are many shadey trees on some streets.
- Pros:Attractive, small-town feel, some nice buildings and places to eat, places to visit in the region.
- Cons:A bit sleepy, especially on weekends
