On California’s Redwood coast is the city of Arcata -- a welcoming place, great for outdoorsy people looking to explore California. From hiking through forests to enjoying farmers’ markets and the laidback life on the beach, Arcata is a vacation spot that feels like home.
To get back to nature, head to the Arcata Community Forest -- the Redwood trees here are huge and tower over hikers exploring the trails. There are also plenty of opportunites to spot birds in the natural setting. For more birds and wildlife, visit the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary with over 300 bird species, including mudflats and marshes.
For a fascinating family day out, make your way to the Humboldt State University Natural History Museum where visitors can learn more about the local environment.
